University of Tennessee JEM MS student Daniel Lewis is CBSSports.com RapidReports‘ first University of Tennessee football and basketball correspondent. CBSSports.com’s RapidReports uses a Twitter-like update system to keep fans in the know about what’s going on with their favorite team.
“The rapid reporters file around 50 quick, 50 or 60 word updates to CBSSports.com per week about anything related to the team. The idea is to have continuing updates throughout the season on each team available for fans,” Lewis explains.
RapidReports was originally launched in 2009, focusing on coverage of the NFL, according to sportsbusinessdaily.com‘s Eric Fisher. The format expanded to cover college football and basketball in 2011, adding 40 correspondents from major universities across the U.S.
Lewis says, “I’m always open to questions about UT or rapid reports from readers or other interested parties.”
