How news and sports are reported has changed by leaps and bounds. I’m old enough to remember when I relied on the newspaper to get updates on my favorite teams. ESPN and CNN changed the way sports and news were covered, respectively.
Fast forward to 2012 and if you want to get scores, highlights, stats, or breaking news, you can get in on your phone. Ralph Vacchiano knows all about the evolution of sports reporting. He’s living it.
Vacchiano is the New York Giants beat writer for the New York Daily News. He’s also the author of the book, “Eli Manning: The Making of a Quarterback,” which is available at Amazon. It’s also available at Barnes & Noble, with an update for the Giants Super Bowl run.
Here’s my interview with Ralph, where we discuss sports journalism, covering a Super Bowl champion, and social media.
