ISU Impact of ESPN+ Partnership

In this episode, John Young, Assistant Lecturer in the Communication, Media, and Persuasion department, joins Kandi Turley-Ames to discuss how a new partnership between the NCAA Big Sky conference and ESPN provides students interested in communication and media hands-on experience in broadcasting. Students produce over 70 live sports programs across 5 different venues on ISU’s campus each year, preparing them for careers in television, media, and producing.

In the latter half of the episode, Julian Means and Jake Link, students majoring in communication with a visual communication-video emphasis, share about their work part of the ISU sports video crew and how they believe the practical experience better prepares them to enter the job market and to be successful in this competitive profession.
