Yes, grammar still matters.
Attention aspiring sports journalists: Knowing the difference between "who" and "whom" is still important. According to a survey of sports editors, grammar and writing skills are lacking in many of the young journalists they interview and hire.

That means making the most of the range of journalism and other classes offered at the university level and seeking experience through internships and other writing outlets.
