The latest Social Media Breakfast (#SMB) was held at the Syracuse Media Group Headquarters last week. Panelists included Kim Brown (SU), Teri Weaver (Syracuse.com), Dan Pacheco (SU) and Tim Robertson (Time Warner Cable). The nearly hour discussion focused on journalism trends, open and closed networks, generating content, page views for pay, social media vs. legacy media, and the pending death of the traditional press release.

Due to time constraints Pacheco, who also did some ground-breaking work with drone technology at Syracuse University, didn’t get to talk about Google Glass with the group.

Author and Morehouse College journalism professor Ron Thomas spoke at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications last Thursday.

Morehouse College Sports and Journalism Program Director Ron Thomas spoke about the genesis of the NBA and how it was integrated during a visit to the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications on Thursday.

Ron Thomas shared stories from his book They Cleared the Lane with SU students and faculty this week. His exhaustive research highlights ballers such as Chuck Cooper, Bucky Lew and Cleo Hill.   Thomas, who grew up in Buffalo and went to college in Rochester,  is a former NBA beat-writer, turned author and educator. His talk was part of an event produced by Syracuse University’s Sports Media Center.

Thomas also posed one of the most clever sports trivia questions out there: Who was the NBA’s first player? (there’s more than one answer, so read the book)

On Friday, Thomas continued his labor of love by attending a ceremony in West Virginia that featured a tribute to Earl Lloyd.

Duke & The Cuse: Synergy

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

 

After a great weekend of sports, particularly for Syracuse, we forget that before there was a rivalry between SU & Duke, there was collaboration. Coach Boeheim successfully worked with Coach K during the Olympics, and ESPN commentators such as Jay Bilas (Duke grad) worked with SU grads.

Bilas, speaking here during a forum at SU’s Newhouse School, takes time to indirectly show some love to SU’s journalism program.

Journalism Matters

Monday, January 6th, 2014

Not sure where he was reared, but we will claim investigative reporter Dan Kane (who once upon a time wrote for the Syracuse Newspapers) as one of our own.  Kane was interviewed today on National Public Radio (NPR) regarding his piece about  UNC Football and academic fraud.   He broke the story about two years ago.

While in Syracuse Kane wrote about the Jonny Gammage trial.
