How journalists can create new beats, niches

In the crowded world of sports journalism, Justin Rice created his own beat by writing about Boston's high school sports teams -- a topic that he thought was undercovered. Rice created his own website, Boston Public School Sports, which the Boston Globe has since picked up.

Rice, who was recently featured in Forbes, shared advice about how to carve out opportunities to do what you like most in journalism, and how to turn an idea into reality. He drew on his own experiences and also answered related questions from chat participants.
