Knoxville News Sentinel sports editor Phil Kaplan learned about the passing of legendary Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summit early on Tuesday morning.

The paper had been informed of Summitt’s declining health over the weekend, which gave the staff time to start planning for some of its coverage. Coverage continues to change as the day is progressing and Kaplan went to Periscope this morning to show his readers how this plan is coming together.

Here is the link to the video Kaplan produced, and a peek at how he and his staff are putting together what has become a large section for Wednesday’s paper.

Here is an afternoon update on the section’s progress.

Phil gives us an update on the writer’s work as attention begins to switch from digital to print.
