Thanks for visiting Backstory — a site I hope can educate and entertain journalists as well as our everyday readers. It’s here to discuss critical topics in the industry as I spotlight notable, contemporary work in sports journalism.

My name’s Mark Selig, and I just received a masters degree at the University of Missouri. This website was my professional project — a practical thesis of sorts before I return full-time to the real world, where I’ve broken a sweat as a college basketball reporter and currently instruct young, eager amateurs as the assistant sports editor at the Columbia Missourian.

For now, the blog is on pause as I navigate the job-hunting stage. But please click around to see some of the posts from last summer. Though the stories are no longer new, some of the takeaways can endure.

Enjoy the blog!
