Getting Started

Why did I create this blog?

  • I read a lot of other blogs and thought it would be nice to create one of my own for others to read.
  • I kind of have an obsession with sports and thought it would be cool to blog about my obsession.
  • I am a Public Relations major and want to learn more about the different ways PR is used in sports.
  • Lastly, this is a class assignment.

This blog will focus on how various sports organizations use Public Relations on an everyday basis. The topics discussed will vary depending on current PR news in the media. I hope to analyze anything from crisis situations, to organizations having to use PR for promotional purposes. I am interested in how PR is used in any and all types of sports (hockey, basketball, soccer, football, baseball, etc.). PR is everywhere whether you see it or not, especially in sports. My goal is to write about interesting and up to date information that relates to PR and sports. I also hope to learn more about both industries, so that I can share with you how the two worlds collide. With that being said, I look forward to blogging and hope you enjoy what I have to say. So stay tuned!
