Event Description:
The Sawyer Library Speaker Series presents A. Sherrod Blakely discussing some of the potholes for young journalists to avoid and how to get around them when they surface. In addition to some must-haves as they begin to chart out a successful journalist career.

A. Sherrod Blakely is back by popular demand. He is a veteran sports journalist who has covered a range of sports, from field hockey to the Final Four. Since 2009, he has been a digital media reporter covering the Boston Celtics for Comcast SportsNet,, and SportsNet Central. Prior to that, the Syracuse, New York, native was an NBA beat writer in Detroit, where he covered the Pistons for Booth News Service and His professional career hasn't always been in the pros. Prior to working in Michigan, Blakely spent five years covering Duke, North Carolina State, and the ACC for the Raleigh, North Carolina News & Observer. He credits those opportunities having come about because of the encouragement he received from his tenth-grade English teacher - Mr. Paratore - and the education he received at Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
