Whether you’re a diehard fan or you don’t know a thing about sports, there’s no denying sports journalism has been at the forefront of much of our industry’s digital innovation. If you haven’t been paying attention, you’re missing some of the best work in multimedia production and reader interaction. Join us at The New York Times as we talk to some of the leaders in sports journalism about what they’ve learned, and how it can apply to any subject area.
Jason Stallman is the sports editor at The New York Times, and has led the staff on some of the Times’s most ambitious multimedia pieces. Those include “Tomato Can Blues” and “The Jockey,” plus some story about skiers called “Snowfall.”
