ESPNU to Feature Campus Connection Productions in October

To tweet this release:

ESPNU will highlight four Campus Connection productions this October as students from the home team will help produce select volleyball matches and a soccer game on ESPNU.

Campus Connection gives students real-life work experience and showcases future journalists in the sports media industry. It also gives ESPNU viewers the on-campus perspective through the eyes and voice of students.

The first Campus Connection will be the Georgia at Auburn match on Wednesday, Oct. 6, at 8 p.m. ET on ESPNU as part of the Wednesday Night Women’s Volleyball schedule. Twelve students from Auburn will get hands-on experience with jobs in the production truck and on the court as part of the live telecast. Senior Matt Lally will be student play-by-play announcer, along with ESPNU commentators Sam Gore and Elizabeth Moreau.

Additional ESPNU Campus Connection women’s volleyball matches will include – Arkansas at LSU on Wednesday, Oct. 13, at 9 p.m.; and South Carolina at Florida on Wednesday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m. Campus Connection will also feature a women’s soccer game – Tennessee at South Carolina on Sunday, Oct. 17, at 3 p.m. Students will play a role in several positions, including producer, graphic assists, camera operator, audio assistant, tape producer, stage manager, play-by-play announcer, sideline reporter, field reporter and SEC recap reporter.

A part of the Internal Communications team at ESPN, I began with the network in 2010 as part of the College Sports PR team. Always an avid sports fan and not an athlete – I grew up a huge fan of the Hartford Whalers, while also watching my brother compete at different levels. I became the manager of several high school sports teams and continued that hobby into college. While at Quinnipiac, I worked in the Sports Information Department, which led me to a summer internship at the New Haven Ravens, a AA baseball team, and an eventual job with the Athletic Communications Department at the University of Connecticut. After my five-year stint at Connecticut, I spent six years as Director of Communications at the BIG EAST Conference in Providence, R.I. before joining ESPN.
