Experience Relays from behind the (media) scenes–
Drake’s Athletic Communications is offering SJMC students the opportunity to work next to credentialed media and elite athletes at the mixed zone where you will help gather and transcribe quotes from the winners of every event. This is an opportunity to:
–see how the media works (especially in a herd type setting) and how established professionals craft questions to get the response they need for a story when they may only have the chance to ask one question,
–observe and interact with athletes who may be at either extreme of the postrace emotional spectrum,
–be active participants in these interviews especially for some of the high school winners.
Sign up for 2-3 hour shifts (or all day if you’re interested) for Thursday night, all day Friday and all day Saturday.
Sign up sheet is on Carlyn Crowe’s office door at 120 Meredith. Sign up by EOD on Monday 4/21. This is a great opportunity for all SJMC majors!
