On Tuesday March 12, NPR’s sports correspondent Tom Goldman met with CatlinSpeak staff to discuss his career and background with the class.
He described his journey to becoming NPR’s first sports correspondent in 1997, after years of working as a sports reporter, editor, and producer for multiple news sources.
Goldman has worked with NPR for over 20 years publishing most of his work under NPR’s programs “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered.”
His career has led him to report on all major sporting events both national and international, such as the World Series, Superbowl, and seven Olympic Games.
New Media Studies students asked several questions regarding his background, education, and specific projects. Goldman commented that while the majority of information he reports on may be found at several other news sources, he consistently tries to add his own “personal touch” to all of his pieces.
His most recent segment covered a press conference with boxers Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, and he plans to attend the event on May 2.
