Calling all Sports PR fans! The Marist PRSSA Regional Conference committee has booked a session that you absolutely cannot miss. Join Dr. Keith Strudler, founder and director of the Marist College Center for Sports Communication, for an interactive chat and live radio/TV broadcast of “The Classroom,” a weekly sports talk show which airs Saturdays on ESPN 1220 and on America ED TV. This show is the first ever partnership between an academic center and an ESPN affiliate, so do not miss the opportunity to get an inside look! Check out archives of the show that are available on iTunes for a sneak peak of what this exciting session has to offer.
Strudler, executive producer and co-host of “The Classroom,” will spend the first half-hour sharing tips and answering questions on how public relations professionals can successfully pitch sports stories that grab a producer’s attention. Strudler is a true expert in his field as he has written sports commentary for the Poughkeepsie Journal and airs a weekly radio commentary on sport and society for WAMC, a public radio station in Albany, NY, that broadcasts over seven states in the Northeast.
The second half-hour of the session will have the conference attendees serve as the studio audience, getting a unique view of the inner workings of real sports broadcasting as it goes live at 10:00 a.m. Whether you are interested in sports, media broadcasting, or both, this session will be the perfect fit for developing your public relations skills.
