Mr. Solomon

The guest speaker for our Sports Journalism class this afternoon was George Solomon.  His vast experience as the sports editor for the Washington Post, coupled with his teaching at the University of Maryland allowed the other students in the class as well as myself to gain a great deal of important knowledge.

Solomon discussed the idea of hiring employees.  He highlighted the idea and the importance of gaining experience while in college.  The most important thing to learn is “how to break stories”, Solomon said. 

“Always set you goals high”, was his follow up.

I have always been someone who works hard at getting valuable experience.  It has proved to be more the beneficial in the long run.  I know the importance of being an expert at finding good radio stories and interviews.  It would be a challenge for me to lean the ins and outs of breaking a print news story.
