Student U Production to Make History with Live Broadcast (10/23/2013)

The Big Ten Network has invested in many mobile HD "Flypacks" that now live at each of the Big Ten schools. These flypacks are designed to allow students to produce their own sports broadcasts that stream live on BigTenNetwork.com and often re-air on the Big Ten Network.

Here at the University of Michigan, we push our flypack to the limit and aim to produce the highest quality broadcasts of Michigan sporting events that we can. With the Student U productions here at Michigan, you as a student can gain invaluable first hand experience working on a sports broadcast that has the potential to reach over 70 million homes!

We believe in further developing and showcasing the talents and hard work of students interested in the broadcasting field. That is why our Student U broadcasts are COMPLETELY produced by students.

Here is a list to give you an idea of the spectrum of roles that make up a successful broadcast:

  • Producer
  • Director
  • Play-by-Play Announcer
  • Color Announcer
  • Sideline Reporter
  • Technical Director
