Stephen Newman, a long-time friend of mine and a graduate of Virginia Tech’s growing communications department, has joined The LaBlue Review to contribute coverage of Washington D.C. sports, primarily the Washington Wizards and the Washington Nationals.
Stephen earned sports writing experience as a student at Virginia Tech from 2014-2018. He served as the Social Media Editor of The Collegiate Times as a senior, managing the student newspaper’s social media presence on multiple platforms. More importantly, Stephen contributed to the newspaper’s coverage of Virginia Tech football and led the way in its coverage of Tech baseball, along with men’s and women’s basketball.
After graduating in 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in multimedia journalism, Stephen joined the Association for Talent Development as a writer and editor, creating and producing all forms of content.
The goal of Stephen’s addition to The LaBlue Review is to provide additional content to the site’s backbone, Virginia Tech athletics. Much of Tech’s fanbase and many of the site’s loyal readers are D.C.-area fans and residents, and I’m confident that they will enjoy Stephen’s coverage of the Nationals and Wizards.
Please, reach out to Stephen on Twitter or via email at snewman1[at]gmail[dot]com. Stephen’s first article is already published, concerning the Wizards and the bevy of moves they made prior to the NBA’s trade deadline.
