For the third consecutive year, Player Engagement is giving current and former players an entry into the world of sports journalism through Boot Camp: Sports Journalism and Communications. Whether you’re interested in being an on-air personality or putting pen to paper, this program will provide you with unmatched training for media careers.
Over four days at Bowling Green State University, participants will gain experience writing feature stories, conducting interviews, broadcasting on the radio, writing for digital platforms, and more. Successful sports journalists will serve as speakers and mentors, allowing participants to receive hands-on coaching from some of the best in the business.
