Sports Broadcasting Professionals Share Experiences, Career Advice with Students During Panel Discussion
November 13, 2015
On Tuesday, November 10, the Curry College Communication Department teamed up with the New England Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (The Emmy® Awards) to co-sponsor a discussion entitled, "Sports Production and Digital Delivery: What's New?", about recent innovations in sports coverage and how the content is being delivered to a technically sophisticated audience with ever-evolving viewing and consuming habits.
Curry College Communication Professor Jerry Gibbs moderated the panel, which included professionals from several regional sports broadcasting outlets.
Panelists Jim Burgoyne (Senior Director of Production & Operation, Comcast SportsNet), Denny Iott (Coordinator of News, NESN), Jay Miller (Director of Operations, Brockton Community Access) and Jim Young, (Associate Lecturer in Sports Broadcasting and Director of Communication Curriculum, Chyten Educational Services) all shared their professional experiences with the students in attendance.
Students also gained insight into internships and emerging career options in the field of sports broadcasting, remote sports operations, and the latest online strategies for production and journalism.
