HAWKS TO HOST “COLLEGE MEDIA DAY” ON SUNDAY, MARCH 20
The Atlanta Hawks will host Georgia-area college students for its annual “College Media Day” Sunday, March 20 (2:00 p.m. tipoff) during the Hawks’ home game against the Detroit Pistons. The “College Media Day” program invites university students interested in sports communications to experience an NBA game as a professional journalist, interact with Hawks staff members, sportswriters and broadcasters and get a first-hand look at what goes on behind the scenes at an NBA game.
Selected students will participate in pre-game Q & A sessions with several members of print, electronic and broadcast media outlets, have lunch in the press room, watch the game from media seating and attend the postgame press conference with Hawks head coach Larry Drew. Additionally, participants will have access to game notes, box scores, and other media materials.
Students interested in pursuing a career in sports communications should not miss this opportunity to gain experience, build their resumes and make professional contacts. Students who submit a game day wrap up or synopsis of their Atlanta Hawks College Media Day will have their writing published on www.atlantahawks.com. This will be a great addition to your writing portfolio.
Those interested should email your name, phone number and a brief account of your experience/aspirations in the sports communication field to Hawks Media Relations Assistant Sam Gaskin by Friday, March 18 (please note that participation is limited).
