Experience Relays 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 during Drake Relays. In the media center at Drake Stadium 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 post-race emotional spectrum,
—be active participants in these interviews especially for some of the high school winners.
Two and three hour shifts are available (or all day if you’re interested) for Thursday night, all day Friday and all day Saturday. Sign up sheet is on the door of 120 Meredith.
