Associate Professor - Clinical Nicole Kraft’s piece, ‘Sports broadcasters have a duty to report injuries responsibly-in the case of NFL’s Damar Hamlin, they passed the test,’ was published in The Conversation on Jan. 5. The article has been picked up in many papers and on Slate.

Kraft explains the importance of how the media reports when there is a live sports crisis such as a player injury. Using past examples of broadcasting failures, Kraft proves that sports media is successful when they prioritize ‘mourning over moneymaking.’
