  • Broadcast (producing, on-air performance, chase and field producing, radio hosting, updates)
  • Digital (using editorial publishing tools, blogging, video, audio, Storify, etc.)

  • Imaging for print and online
  • Hosting in-studio and in the field

You also have the opportunity to participate in the program's annual trip to baseball's spring training, where you can apply skills and develop confidence. Meanwhile, an industry field placement in a sports media organization in Canada or around the world complements your training.
