Blazers sideline reporter Rebecca Haarlow is running a series of camps this summer for both students and adults who are interested in meeting her breaking into the sports on television business. The camps will be run here in Portland and will take place in the actual television studios the crew uses during the season.
A great opportunity, it would seem, for Blazers diehards and aspiring broadcasters alike.
Ms. Haarlow's camp promises that you will...
- Learn to call and analyze an NBA game
- Learn the keys to a successful sideline report
- Learn to break down anchor copy and make the best choices
- Learn to work and interact with a co-host
- Learn to use a teleprompter while incorporating your personality
For more information, simply visit RebeccaHaarlow.com and click the "Sports Broadcast Camp" tab on the left menu.
On a somewhat related note, due to overwhelming demand, the application period for the Blazers Edge Sports Blogging Training Camp is now closed. Those of you who were selected for this elite program will be notified by email. Please bring your own Red Bull, wireless mouse and Pendergraphing calculator, as well as a bagged lunch. I look forward to meeting all of you!
One final note: the Tony Luftman Broadcasting Camp has been pushed back until after the conclusion of the Slam Ball playoffs. Thanks for your patience.
