Mini-Documentary Exclusively in New York Sports Museum


SPORTS MEDIA

Sports media based in New York have had a major impact on sports and other fields and on how news is produced and presented. 

Connected to a historic Lexington Avenue townhouse visible from the tour route, the story examines the rise of sports media in the city, including a visit to the 1830s, when the first news publication to prioritize sports was launched. 

The story's personalities include New York Journal publisher William Randolph Hearst and a sportswriter Hearst hired in 1905, Thomas A. Dorgan.

TAD, as Dorgan was known, introduced sayings now widely popular in and out of sports.
