I graduated from the Ithaca College Roy H. Park School of Communications in December 2012 with a Bachelor's degree in Journalism. Supplementing my journalism degree with a minor in Sports Studies, I hope to one day be the CEO of my own sporting news outlet where I write an NCAA Men's College Basketball column.
In 2011 I began an undergraduate research project with Ithaca College associate professor Mead Loop, titled, "Twitter Usage by ESPN Fantasy Sports Columnists." The study documented and categorized approximately 2,000 tweets from eight different fantasy sport columnists employed by ESPN from Oct. 1-31, 2011. We looked closely at the purpose of each tweet in order to produce accurate research regarding how fantasy sport columnists use the social medium Twitter as an integral part of their job. I then presented my research at the National Conference of Undergraduate Research (NCUR) 2012 at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. A follow up study in 2012 is currently underway to compare and contrast its results with the 2011 study.
I wish to one day attend graduate school in order to pursue my passion for Sport Sociology in order to further understand the pivotal roles sport plays in our lives from a historical, philosophical and sociological dimension.
Thanks for the help Brandon!
Thanks for the edits and feedback Brandon!
Thanks Brandon. Your words are very kind. It makes me staying up very late to put the finishing touches on that article worth it.
Thanks for the edits!
Thanks for the edit, Brandon. I thought that becuase it was a modifier that a hyphen was needed as in regular-season title. I appreciate you fixing it.
Thanks for the edit... even if you are a Cuse fan! Haha
I tried changing the primary photo and rewording a sentence in my live blog article, but for some reason when I publish the article nothing changes. Can you see what's that all about?
Thanks for the edits! Have a great day man.
Thanks for the props on the article! The media is definitely guilty of building up these athletes as larger-than-life characters before learning the whole truth about them. As for the pressure of constantly being in the spotlight, that's an entirely different issue but I completely agree with you. That must take a toll mentally and contribute to some of the dumb decisions they make.
But anyway, thanks again for the props! I definitely appreciate the support for an article like that.
Thanks for the edits and kind words, Brandon. Much appreciated!
