Steve Warren, the Coordinating Producer for Fox Sports Ohio (formerly SportsTime Ohio) stopped by JDM's Sports Broadcasting class recently to talk about all things local sports production and how students can secure internships and ultimately, a first job.

"Students need two things to jump-start a career in media, a foundation of practical skills like writing, shooting and editing with a variety of media software, and a great attitude!" said Warren.

Warren, a graduate of the University of Akron and a veteran producer, director, editor and operations manager, told students internships are extremely important because typically they lead to entry level jobs.

Warren told JDM students they have an advantage over many college media students because of the variety of remote productions using authentic industry techniques the department exposes them to.

"We loved airing Ashland games on STO. Your student productions were excellent!" said Warren.
