Robo Journalism Feeds Sports Site

http://66.225.205.104/1203StatSheet.mp3

There are plenty of web sites and blogs that provide news, rumors and analysis of your favorite sports teams. A company based in Durham called StatSheet.com, for example, is dedicated to covering all 345 division 1 college basketball teams. The site includes not only statistics, but previews and recaps of every game. But what makes this small company stand out is how it produces so much content. You might call it Robo journalism. Eastern Carolina and MIT grad Robbie Allen is the company's founder and CEO. He spoke with WFAE's Scott Graf. Examples of StatSheet.com coverage: Duke-Michigan St. recap Duke-Butler preview
