The lab is named for, and dedicated to the memory of, the late Bob Koop, a long-time anchor on WIVB-TV Channel 4 News in Buffalo.
Imagine yourself doing play-by-play of Division I college spots on live television for hundreds of thousands of viewers on TV sports network.
Picture yourself directing or producing a tournament basketball game, providing replays, doing courtside interviews, running a camera, or providing audio or graphics for telecasts.
It's all being done by SBU-TV Sports, courtesy of the our network-level TV Production Facility.
This 48-foot, 40-ton unit once sat on wheels and was hauled from site to site to televise major league sports, and was even used to produce the Academy Awards. Today, it's permanently parked on our campus, next to the Reilly Center and its 4,000-seat basketball arena, home of the Bonnies, our Division I men's and women's basketball teams.
You'll learn to present journalism on the fly: live telecasts of basketball, baseball, soccer, lacrosse and other Division I sporting events. You'll also get the chance to produce shows about sports and public affairs.
You'll learn in workshops from men and women who have won Emmys for their work at CBS, NBC, Fox and ESPN.
