Oregon Sports Beat

For years, different kinds of media have given sports fans around the world the opportunity to follow their favorite teams:  Newspaper, radio, TV and movies have revolutionized communication and entertainment.

Recently, a new technology has entered the media landscape; the internet.  Large professional and major collegiate sports organizations were the first to take advantage of this new technology, and they began marketing their products in ways never before seen. With the explosion in popularity of mobile devices and other easy ways to access information, large sports organizations currently dominate the sports conversation.

This large scale model has come at a cost; smaller sports organizations, like high school sports and local amateur leagues,  are largely left out of the conversation. SportsBeat aims to change that.
