Interested in exploring the world of sportscasting? Our workshop offers on-camera experience, including anchoring and on-camera panel discussions, as well as skills such as broadcast writing, sports reporting and editing, and podcasting.

You’ll have the chance to interview Indiana University athletics staff and athletes, then use your footage to create a story. You’ll also try out the anchor desk in The Media School’s new Beckley Studio.

You’ll learn how to engage with cameras and transition through segments, and you’ll receive feedback from faculty and students at The Media School’s sports media program.

You may take this five-day session as a standalone, or you may combine it with the Reporting and Writing’s sports workshop, offered July 6-10. This workshop is for students who need to learn the basics of sports writing and reporting.
