MARAUDER BASKETBALL ANNOUNCER OPPORTUNITY

bball

CFMU and McMaster Athletics are looking for Colour Commentators and Play-by-Play Announcers for McMaster Women’s and Men’s Basketball games beginning in November.

The positions provide an opportunity to develop skills in broadcasting and sports media. Alumni have gone on to work for globeandmail.com, CFL.ca and TSN’s Off the Record.

The commitment is not for every game, but for as many games as possible during the 2013 – 2014 season. In November these games are Fri/Sat evenings. January – March, most games are Wed evenings and Sat afternoons. There are no games in December.
Depending on the success of the team(s), the commitment could extend to OUA playoff dates and a national championship weekend.

This is a volunteer position, but successful candidate(s) receive technical training, broadcast training and guidance, admission to all games, bus transportation with the team to all regular season games, airline transportation if needed, and transportation and hotel (if needed) for all OUA playoff games and CIS championship.

Applicants do NOT need radio experience but should be available for most (if not all) games in the 2013-2014 season; be confident as a speaker; know the game inside and out; have a working knowledge of the men’s and women’s teams; and be willing to do some homework to learn more about the team and its competitors.

Those interested in this opportunity should contact Jamie Tennant at jtennant@msu.mcmaster.ca by October 15, 2013.
