About the Center
Syracuse University and the Newhouse School are renowned for turning out talented and successful sports journalists in all media.
The Newhouse Sports Media Center builds on that reputation, connecting alumni, faculty and current students through their sports journalism skills and passion for the profession. The center provides oversight for the school’s Sports Communications Emphasis, a specialized track for graduate and undergraduate students, collaborates with on-campus sports media and strengthens academic-industry partnerships through special events and guest lectures. Associated faculty members serve as experts on issues in the field. Veteran broadcast journalist and professor of practice John Nicholson ’68 is the Center’s director.
