Abstract

Sport is world-wide one of the most important media topics, however internationally investigations of sport reporting so far are rather. In this contribution the results of a study for international sport reporting in daily papers are presented with data from ten different countries. The explorative field study examines the distribution of topics, the construction principles of contents as well as further quality criteria of sport reporting in three different types of newspapers. Apart from the dominance of football and above all male sport stars the International Sports Press Survey proves a globalization of sport reporting with small journalistic care.
