Ball State Expands Sports Link Program
Ball State University has completed a major expansion project of its immersive sports media program. The university says the Sports Link Production Center will allow students to produce more original live programming.
The university says students involved in Sports Link will now have access to additional edit stations and collaborative creative spaces, a conference room, and a studio for live social media and other programming.
Additionally, the new space will allow Sports Link to collaborate with the Ball State Esports team to provide all students with “a one-of-a-kind digital experience within the Esports Collegiate Conference.”
“Our new studio space allows us to do the same, and at a moment’s notice,” said Chris Taylor, senior digital director of sports production. “It adds the dimension to complement our live sports productions to ESPN platforms, the studio programming from Ball State’s virtual set and our consistent daily content creation. More importantly, it enhances our collaborative space where storytelling and creativity can flourish.”
Combined with the program’s original classroom, Ball State says the team now has more than 2,500 square feet of operating space in the College of Communication, Information and Media.
