The college is entering into a new agreement with ESPN under which its students will produce live Canisius athletic events for ESPN3. As a result, the college will offer a new program in Sports Broadcast Journalism beginning in the fall 2015 semester.
A state-of-the-art Golden Griffin Sports Broadcast Center will be built on the first floor of Science Hall, and students in the new program will staff the center. This is an exciting opportunity for Canisius and a unique collaboration between the academic and athletics programs, as well as an introduction of an applied technology presence in Science Hall.
While some learned about this initiative when it was presented by Athletic Director Bill Maher and Communication Department Chair John Dahlberg at the Spring Faculty Meeting, I wanted to be sure that the entire college community heard this good news before it was released to the local media.
