Brok Haines“I assist producers and editors with packages that run on ‘The NFL Today’ pregame show and on ‘SEC on CBS.’ I log and edit game tapes and edit and clip audio cuts from NFL and NCAA basketball and football games. Through my classes at IUPUI, I learned more about the evolution of sports journalism, which gave me a better understanding of the field I was preparing for.”

Amy Elisabeth Mills“In February 2016, I joined the LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association) communications team as their statistical research manager. I am working with the LPGA’s historical stats data cleanse project, while assisting Tour Operations and Communications with statistical information for publication to various media platforms. The master’s in sports journalism provided me with a great opportunity to work with ESPN, the worldwide leader in sports, and gave me the ability to build my knowledge base in data and statistics and to realize the importance of statistics to the bottom line of journalistic content. Today’s sports fan demands quick, correct, and concise facts about their favorite players. And, being able to provide that content for any sport has become a significant way to contribute to the field of sports media on all levels.”

Michael Guzman“My classes at IUPUI did an incredible job of preparing me to start my career. Nothing came easy by any means, but IUPUI not only provided the physical opportunity, it allowed me to understand the intangibles of networking, scheduling, following up, and improving as a communicator daily for not only getting an internship but building relationships that land the first job. My primary responsibilities include updating the Barons Media Guide, working with printers and designers in creating the pocket schedule and game program, hosting the Barons Media Day luncheon, as well as creating content for press releases, ‘The Barons Beat’ newsletter, the official team website, the Barons blog, and all of our social media channels. I’m also responsible for managing the official team website, pitching stories to major TV stations (local CBS, NBC, ABC, and FOX affiliates) as well as print and online outlets, assisting in the team’s community relations efforts, and coordinating the Barons travel schedule throughout the Southern League.”
