UGA Joins With ESPNU for Student-Run Initiative

ESPNU, in collaboration with the University of Georgia, and 19 other colleges and universities from across the country, has launched a new student-run initiative called “ESPNU Campus Connection.”

Working with students, professors and athletic departments, the new ESPNU initiative incorporates student-generated content across multiple ESPN platforms. Some examples include students announcing games (play-by-play announcer and analyst), sideline reporting and producing televised events on ESPNU involving their schools, as well as contributing special segments and feature stories for other ESPN networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN360.com, etc.) and writing articles for ESPN The Magazine and ESPN.com.

The full story is available over on "Eye on Sports Media".
