Sports Department – TSTV

From 2010-2013, I worked at Texas Student Television, the only student-run, student-produced, FCC-licensed, digitally broadcasting college television station in the country. Here I worked primarily in the studio sports, live sports, & TSTV productions departments.

In the studio, I worked on two weekly sports shows. One similar to ESPN’s Around the Horn (College Crossfire) and the other similar to SportsCenter (College Pressbox). I worked both behind and in front of the camera, calling highlights, reporting, and discussing sports topics on air. Behind the camera, I directed, technical directed, ran graphics, video, & audio, worked cameras, and occasionally produced episodes. As well as I earned the role of graphics producer, creating each week’s new graphics, implementing them in the shows, and even getting to redesign them.

In live sports, we got to produce three regional broadcasts of UT Women’s Volleyball games. I helped in preparation as well as worked camera, floor manager & talent manager in the different broadcasts. We also would go on to stream a live internet broadcast of the 2011 Division III Men’s & Women’s Southland Basketball Tournament in San Antonio. For the stream I handled floor/talent managing & audio engineering.

Finally, as we transitioned from strictly live sports productions to TSTV Productions, I worked on two other projects in this department. I worked as a second cameraman for a series of videos on UT orientation. As well as I worked on a documentary for the Lake Travis High School Football team’s drive for its fifth straight state championship. On this project I produced, was audio engineer, & did a variety of jobs on the post-season interviews.
