NSSA Announces Partnership With YBA

NSSA is pleased to announce a new partnership with Young Broadcasters of America (YBA), a Massachusetts-based company that helps to teach broadcasting through online courses.

 

The NSSA/YBA partnership, called Sportscasters and Sportswriters in Training (SST) will draw on NSSA’s members to help provide professional advice to supplement the online learning. It’ll provide an opportunity for those NSSA members to supplement their income, while giving back to young broadcasters interested in sportscasting as a career. ┬áThe SST program is scheduled for an early January launch.

 

NSSA and YBA are continuing to develop the online sportswriting curriculum, which will debut at a later date.

 

As part of the partnership, YBA and NSSA will also present a High School Sportscaster/Sportswriter of the Year Award, with the winner accepting his or her award at the 53rd Annual NSSA Awards Banquet on June 11, 2012.

 

For those interested, here is a link to the registration page.

 

Any NSSA member interested in participating in the SST program is encouraged to contact Dave Goren at dgoren@nssafame.com or (704) 633-4275 ext. 1.
