Little Falls, NJ – High school and college students will have a unique opportunity to learn about sports broadcasting when WNBC-TV’s Bruce Beck and New Jersey Nets announcer Ian Eagle conduct their third annual Sports Broadcasting Camp from July 26-30, 2004 at the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center on the campus of Montclair State University.
The Bruce Beck & Ian Eagle Sports Broadcasting Camp will allow students, male and female, 14-and-older, to learn about game preparation, writing and interviewing skills, sports talk radio, the differences between radio and television calls and on-air presentation. Lectures, field trips, daily visits from big name New York area broadcasters and practice assignments lead up to the final project of calling the July 30th Newark Bears minor league baseball game.
“We’ve been very proud to host the Bruce Beck & Ian Eagle Sports Broadcasting Camp each summer,” said Dave Kaplan, Director, Programs and Education at the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center. “It is a marvelous hands-on experience for students interested in the business, and perfectly consistent with our mission of educating and inspiring young people.”
Beck has served as the weekend sports anchor and weekday sports reporter at WNBC-TV since 1997. He also works on NBC’s coverage of the NBA and hosts the Rutgers University football and basketball coaches shows.
Eagle has worked for the last nine seasons as the New Jersey Nets television voice. He also works for CBS Sports on its coverage of the NFL, along with college football and basketball, and hosts sports talk shows on WFAN.
The Bruce Beck & Ian Eagle Sports Broadcasting camp is limited to 60 campers who are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. The cost is $625.
