Workshop “Sports Journalism” Enters Second Round

May 2, 2022

The continuing education course at FHWien der WKW will take place from July 4 to 8, 2022. There are two course tracks for “TV & Video” and “Print & Online”. Registrations are already possible.

Vienna, May 2, 2022 – This summer at FHWien der WKW, everything will once again revolve around the dream job of being a sports reporter for one week. Participants in the “Sports Journalism” workshop will gain a comprehensive insight into the subject and acquire expertise that they can apply immediately. It will be the second workshop of this kind.

In two course tracks for “TV & Video” on the one hand and “Print & Online” on the other, professionals pass on their knowledge. They share their experience and impart the basics of sports journalism – from well-founded sports commentary to the right announcer and successful outdoor shooting to the perfect sports text. Established journalists can also benefit from this course.

Getting started in sports journalism made easy

In the workshop “Sports Journalism”, participants will receive a theoretical overview of current challenges in sports reporting: What prerequisites should one have in order to be successful in this field? What special requirements should one meet? How rapidly is the world of sports reporting changing? Content on economic and legal framework requirements supplements the program.

However, the focus is on practice: The aim of the workshop is to teach participants the basic journalistic skills for working in a sports newsroom and to apply them in various practical projects. Concrete tips for a successful start in sports journalism round off the seminar.

Learn journalistic work in a compact setting

“With the ‘Sports Journalism’ workshop we are addressing everyone who wants to learn journalistic work in a compact setting,” says Daniela Süssenbacher, Head of Journalism & Media Management Study Programs at FHWien der WKW. “Participants will benefit from our many years of experience in academic journalism training.”

“The workshop is designed in such a way that it builds upon existing knowledge and also provides career changers with the necessary tools,” adds workshop leader Martin Reichenauer, himself a former sports reporter and head of the TV & Video department in the Journalism & Media Management study programs. “The lecturers are proven experts from the industry who contribute their expertise to the workshop.”
