About the Center

Syracuse University and the Newhouse School are renowned for turning out talented and successful sports professionals 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, guest lectures and an advisory board of professionals in sports media. Associated faculty members serve as experts on issues in the field. Veteran television sports producer and professor of practice Olivia Stomski ’01 is the Center’s director.
