The ongoing debates at present concerns the different fields of application of sciences in communication in connection with technological innovations. And discussions currently underway touch all journalistic forms.
Sports journalism is one of this kind and an author particularly took care of it by publishing a work “ SPORTS JOURNALISM-Contexts and Issues” . Our purpose in this edition is to know if it is well founded.
Raymond Boyle, professor, in Glasgow, has released a book in 2006 (Sage publications) on the specifics of sports journalism and that was before the proliferation of sports channels that are now as much watched if not more than traditional public service channels, whether non-or specialized on sports news.

But then what about the content and the one that produces it? We read in the book.
