Students who are interested in the sports communication field and the potential career endeavors that come with the profession are encouraged to learn about the field. 

Five panelists, each with experience working in sports media, will answer questions, provide insight and explain the field as they have experienced it.

The event, which is open to students, faculty, staff and alumni alike, will feature the following guests: 

  • Al Dukes, a Kean University alum and producer of the Boomer & Carton radio program on WFAN sports radio.
  • Chris Brienza, vice president of Coyne Public Relation's Sports and Media practices and head of its New York City office.
