For the past 3 years, I have found my niche in sports broadcasting as a journalism student at Ohio University. The best part of my job? Being the medium for fans to stay updated on their teams and witnessing how sports can unify people across the globe. In Athens, I have worked a variety of positions for both the sports and news departments for the WOUB Center for Public Media. In the sports department, I have been the Sports Director as well as a beat reporter for three sport television shows, analyst for two radio programs, photog for local high school and university athletics, and sports anchor for the daily news show called Newswatch. As the Sports Director, my co-director and I assembled a team of executives to expand coverage, expand the social media presence of the station, and oversee a group of over 90 student reporters, shooters, and directors to produce daily content. In the news department, I was the head video editor, news anchor, and reporter for Newswatch. I trained all incoming freshmen and reporters on how to use Final Cut Pro, GV Stratus, and ENPS 6&7. I covered protests on campus and in the community. I interviewed Ohio University President Roderick McDavis on his 10 year tenure at the university for WOUB. I have worked in a professional environment as well, the experience coming from interning at Comcast SportsNet Chicago. I worked alongside reporters and photogs, covering professional Chicago sports, ranging from games to press conferences. I interviewed professional athletes as well as every day fans for all sports, created packages for the web, and edited highlights. When I'm not talking about sports, you can find me on the basketball court or on the gridiron. When there's time to spare, I'm watching NFL highlights, waiting for the Chicago Bears to have a season like 1985.
Princeton came in with a stellar record looking to pull the upset. West Virginia wouldn't let that happen.
The Ohio Bobcats never looked back as they cruised to a win over Kent State. Their defense and offense was something the Golden Flashes couldn't handle.
Tonight's Big East opener was a slugfest with DePaul landing the last few punches. Their starting backcourt packs quite a punch.
Ohio is coming off their 1st loss of the season to Illinois, but the road to their first win will be tough against Bob Boldon’s first head coach in Karl Smesko.
Ohio’s offense only had 10 minutes of spotlight. Then, sloppy fundamentals and consistent turnovers gave Illinois the opportunity to shine.
The MAC is always an unpredictable conference. This year, however, may be a repeat of last season for years to come.
The Fever's foul trouble and turnovers cost them 2 losses in this series. If they want to extend this series to 5 games, they will have to correct those things tonight.
