Video Streaming Update Spring 2014

Hosting NCAA Basketball Tournament
Illinois Wesleyan was chosen to host the first and second round of the men’s basketball tournament this weekend. I have just received permission from the NCAA for the streaming rights to these games. Here is our schedule for this weekend:
  • Ohio Wesleyan vs. St. Norbert – Friday, March 7 at 5:30pm
  • IWU vs. Webster – Friday, March 7 at 7:30pm
  • Winner Game 1 vs. Winner Game 2 – Saturday, March 8 at 7pm
If you can’t make it to the games in person, please¬†watch us from home¬†and support our Titans!
Internship at WGN
Matt Rooney and his fellow WESN students have been providing play by play and analyst commentary for almost all of our streaming broadcasts. Matt is a senior this year and will be moving on after he graduates in May. Matt has let me know that he has an internship with WGN this summer and hopes to continue to explore broadcasting as a career. Matt, I think I speak for everyone in saying that you have done a wonderful job with your broadcast duties at IWU and we all wish you the best of luck with WGN and whatever your future brings! You will be missed.
