Mason Cable Network’s Sports Broadcasting Team produces over 100 live streams each year through a partnership with Mason Athletics. Students handle all aspects of the production, including writing scripts, doing play-by-play and color commentary, handling tech services and working the cameras.
ESPN+ began carrying Student Media broadcasts of select A-10 sports (men’s and women’s soccer, baseball, softball, and lacrosse) in the fall of 2018.
“Having these broadcasts published on ESPN really makes this feel professional,” said Natalie McCarthy, a senior sport management major. “You have a bigger incentive to make sure everything looks good and is done just right.”
And, of course, she added, “It looks really good on a résumé.”
