Sports Announcing & Sports Journalism Camp

Hosted by Lanny Frattare, our camp offers the theories and the practical experience necessary to start a student on the road toward a career in either sports broadcasting or sports journalism.

Have you thought about a career as a sports announcer or sports journalist? We can teach you the techniques to be successful!

In June, former voice of the Pittsburgh Pirates Lanny Frattare will host Waynesburg University’s Sports Announcing & Sports Journalism Camp. Its purpose is to allow students interested in those fields to learn the philosophies and techniques of the profession. Attendees receive practical experience in reporting sports, interviewing, doing play-by-play and more.

Current high school sophomores, juniors and seniors are eligible to attend. If you have any questions, please contact Isaiah Skeete, Associate Director of Admissions, at 724-852-3216 or
