Football Journalism Masterclass

The Sport Business present the first of their sports journalism master classes this season with The Daily Telegraph’s Mark Ogden 

Mark has been the Telegraph’s Northern Football Correspondent since April 2009, focusing on events at Manchester City and Manchester United.

Mark recently broke the biggest story in years – the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson. So, what is it really like to report on English football’s number one patch? How does it feel to get the full Fergie hairdryer? What are the key moments and stories from last season’s turbulent times at Manchester City.

Having started his career as a football reporter at the age of 18, Mark has spent two decades covering he Premier League and, prior to joining the Telegraph, worked as a freelancer for every national daily and Sunday newspaper.

Who is this for?

This workshop’s aim is to help students, post graduates, young professionals, sports professionals with an interest in the media, anyone within journalism who is looking to expand their knowledge, or learn more about football reporting, and anyone who enjoys an evening at Manchester’s most vibrant venue – 2022NQ.

The workshop will include:

  • Co-presentation by TV & radio broadcaster Dom McGuiness
  • The workings of the industry, and how to break into it
  • Researching and finding the story
  • Effective interviewing
  • The do’s and don’ts of football writing
