I served as the Nashville Predators beat writer for The Tennessean during the 2014-15 season from training camp in September until the All-Star Break in late January.
I worked hard to write accurate, informative and engaging stories with the ever present deadline of a 24/7 news cycle to grow digital readership. I promoted the coverage in social media spaces, produced iPhone videos and enjoyed interacting with fans.
Below are links to some of my best work:
Gameday Experience: A chronological sample of my digital coverage during a 14-hour period.
Enterprise: Front-page story on the behind the scenes logistics.
Breaking/Hard News: The All-Star Game is coming to Nashville.
Player Profile: Sports cover story looks closer at Pekka Rinne and new goaltending coach Ben Vanderklok.
Interactive: Viral content style.
Analysis: A trend-style story.
Mobile video: iPhone produced on deadline.
