Sports writers deliver engaging and informative news to readers of blogs, websites, newspapers, or magazines.

Some writers specialize in coverage of one sport, such as basketball or football, while others cover all the news on athletic competition in their region. Regardless of the type of sport covered, writers must use their creativity to excite and engage readers while writing content that is always factual, current and accurate.
