Sports Media, 2021
My name is Thomas Hoogendoorn and I am a third-year Bachelor of Communication and Media (Sports Media) student. Across the three years of my degree I have taken subjects covering sports media, digital media, general journalism and communications. I have had two internships during my third-year, one at The Canberra Times and the other with Capital Football. During this time I have covered numerous sports, implementing a variety of writing styles such as match reports, feature articles, media releases and more. I have adapted to confidently conducting interviews whether it be in-person, over the phone or in press conferences. The combination of my academic learning and insights from the course work, coupled with the practical application of these learnings in two internships, has provided me a sound basis to begin a career in Sports Journalism.
