This book is about the conjunction of two of the most powerful cultural forces of our times - sport and media. It examines the ways in which media sport has insinuated itself into contemporary everyday life, and how sport and media have made themselves mutually indispensable as well as, for whole societies of people, unavoidable. The book is divided into two parts. The first, Making Media Sport, traces the rise of the sports media and the ways in which broadcast and print sports texts are produced, the values and practices of those who produce them - including sports journalists - and the economic and political influences on and implications of 'the media sports cultural complex'. In the second part, Unmaking the Media Sports Text, there is a concentration on different media forms - television, still photography, news reporting, film, live commentary, creative sports writing and new media sports technologies. In linking how media sport is produced with what it produces, this lively introduction to sport and the media helps us to understand the cultural power and influence of the sports image and the sports page.

Television is no longer the only screen delivering footage and news to people about sport. Computers, the Internet, Web, mobile and other digital media are increasingly important technologies in the production and consumption of sports media. Sport Beyond Television analyzes the changes that have given rise to this situation, combining theoretical insights with original evidence collected through extensive research and interviews with people working in the media and sport industries. It locates sports media as a pivotal component in online content economies and cultures, and counteracts the scant scholarly attention to sports media when compared to music, film and publishing in convergent media cultures. An expanding array of popular sports media – industry, user, club, athlete and fan produced – is now available and accessible in networked digital communications environments. This change is confounding the thinking of major sports organizations that have lived off the generous revenue flowing from exclusive broadcast contracts with free-to-air and subscription television networks for the last five decades. These developments are creating commercial and policy confusion, particularly as sports audiences and the advertising market fragment in line with the proliferation of niche channels and sources of digital sports media. Chapters in this title examine the shift from broadcast to online sports media markets, the impact of social networking platforms like Twitter and Facebook, evolving user and fan practices, the changing character of sports journalism, and the rise of sports computer gaming. Each chapter traces the socio-cultural implications of trends and trajectories in media sport.

How is contemporary culture “framed”—understood, promoted, dissected and defended— in the new approaches being employed in university education today? How do these approaches compare with those seen in the public policy process? What are the implications of these differences for future directions in theory, education, activism and policy? Framing Culture looks at cultural and media studies, which are rapidly growing fields through which students are introduced to contemporary cultural industries such as television, film and video. It compares these approaches with those used to frame public policy and finds a striking lack of correspondence between them. Issues such as Australian content on commercial television and in advertising, new technologies and new media, and violence in the media all highlight the gap between contemporary cultural theories and the way culture and communications are debated in public policy. The reasons for this gap must be investigated before closer relations can be established. Framing Culture brings together cultural studies and policy studies in a lively and innovative way. It suggests avenues for cultural activism that have been neglected in cultural theory and practice, and it will provoke debates which are long overdue.
