Look out SportsCenter, there's a new sports show on the tube. The Bronco Athletic Association has released its pilot episode of Bronco Sports Roundup.
The ESPN-esque show looks to promote Bronco Athletics with sports highlights and interviews from athletes and coaches. The pilot episode premiered earlier this month. The association aims to have a new episode each quarter that highlights the in-season teams.
The pilot episode includes highlights from the men's and women's soccer teams, as well as the volleyball team.
“We hope this can help promote Bronco pride throughout campus,” said Lorena Marquez, athletics marketing and promotions coordinator.
Students and staff from the Bronco Athletic Association produce the Bronco Sports Roundup. The co-anchors are tennis player Eric Carlstrom and Connor Duckworth from the track and field team.
“The show is a fun, creative project but also an opportunity for those involved to develop their leadership and communication skills,” says Marquez, who also directs the show. “We welcome feedback so that this student-driven project can grow and be part of the learn-by-doing philosophy Cal Poly Pomona instills in all its students.”
The Bronco Sports Roundup can be seen every hour on the hour on the university's Channel 33. See the show anytime at https://dsa.cpp.edu/athletics/baa/default.asp.
The second episode will air sometime during the winter quarter. Like many television pilots, some details change as the show develops. By the second episode the show will be renamed Bronco Sports Show.
