Saturday’s MHSAA Boys Basketball Finals will have live streaming audio at MHSAANetwork.com from student broadcasters who took top honors in the 2014-15 Michigan Student Broadcast Awards Sports Play-By-Play category sponsored by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters Foundation.
Kyle Marino and Riley Holder from Lake Orion took first place in the television play-by-play category and will announce the Class C and B title tilts. Dylan Wittenberg and Foster Stubbs will represent Bloomfield Hills High School in calling the Class A championship game. The duo were part of crews that took the top two places in the play-by-play radio category.
There also will be two student-produced public service announcements airing this weekend. A radio message on parental sportsmanship, produced by Kent Davis of Bloomfield Hills High School and a television message on sportsmanship by Caleb Gulledge and Trace Clinton of Davison High School will air in their respective mediums Saturday.
In addition, approximately 50 aspiring student broadcasters from MHSAA members participating in the School Broadcast Program will participate in a Breslin Center field trip program Friday, listening to industry professionals and peer student broadcasters in a morning workshop, before afternoon tours of broadcast facilities at the Breslin Center, WKAR-TV at Michigan State University and the FOX Sports Detroit remote unit covering the Finals. The students also will engage in their own coverage of the games. The field trip is conducted in cooperation with the Student Broadcast Foundation and Herff Jones.
