Sports Journalist

What I do

Sports journalists write newspaper articles, online articles, or magazine articles relating to recent or past sporting events.

Path to my career

I decided to pursue a Sports Journalism major at Goshen College. After 4 years at Goshen I got a job working for Sports Illustrated making 45 thousand dollars a year writing 2 online articles and 1 print article per week.
I love my job because I get to meet real NFL players and get into games for free. I also get to travel nearly everywhere in country as a part of my job. It does get stressful when I know I need to finish an article in a time crunch. I am satisfied with where I'm at but this job has also opened doors to be guests on many different sports talk shows.
