BOOK LAUNCH: 'Sports Journalism: The State of Play'

My latest book, Sports Journalism: The State of Play, has just been published by Routledge, with a positive reaction from the industry.

The book contains insights and predictions into the changing world of sports journalism, and is aimed at both practising sports journalists, aspiring sports journalists, and sports media academics.

Interviewees include a range of leading sports journalists, including Anna Kessel, Stuart James, Sam Peters, Steve Marshall, David Emery and James Pearce.

The Sports Journalists' Association have done a piece on the book with my co-author Daragh Minogue.

Paddy Barclay, former chairman of the SJA, says: "What this book doesn’t tell you about sports journalism in the digital age isn’t worth knowing. Tom Bradshaw and Daragh Minogue provide a comprehensive guide to the media, tracing the history of an era of often startling change and pointing to the future in a way that will educate and entertain both current and aspiring journalists. It is the most readable work - students and historians alike will enjoy learning from it, as I certainly did."

Will Cope, Sports Journalism course leader at Southampton Solent University, has also given the book his seal of approval: "Tom Bradshaw and Daragh Minogue have crafted a brilliantly well-researched, uber-contemporary, rip-roaring read that is crammed full of excellent case studies and thought-provoking content."
