Tales of the Traveling Trophy of Miami

Greetings readers,

Just the other day, I had the chance to broadcast from the campus of Miami University-Hamilton Branch. While this might sound like just another day in the office, it was special because of the fact it was for a trophy (my first call with a special prize at the end of the game.)

My Outlook & Goals for 2015

Picture taken by hockey fan Jennifer Kolb.

Greetings readers, welcome to the new year of 2015!

I’d like to share with you my outlook and goals for the New Year. Don’t worry, they’re all sportscasting related (I’m not any good with any other type of resolutions, trust me.)

First off, I’m going to go further than “get a sportscasting job.” In my thoughts, it’s too generic and too boring. By now, you might know I’m already on the quest for the career. This is more for what steps I’d like to take to get said job this year.

Now, my first goal is to write more. Towards the end of last year, I started writing more in my blog. It started off as another outlet to inform people to listen in to my next call, but then transformed into me sharing some personal experiences of some events. For example, the 1st day of the 2014 TVS Tip-Off Tournament. That brought in some looks and a friend liked my personal touch on my recaps (and another way to share my broadcasting work too, I may add.)

Originally, this blog was about topics with my opinion added to them. Why did it stray so much, you ask? I don’t know if I got “bored” or just thought nobody was reading it, so articles became few and far between. It also didn’t help that work took a lot of free time out of my hands.

This year, I’d like to share more. I’d like to share my experiences as the broadcaster about what I see during a call. I’ll try my best to write at least two to three times a month, maybe more. If I can share an experience you can’t find anywhere else, I think that’d be something fascinating to read.

Secondly, I know I’ve shared my plans for this for about twenty centuries (because podcasting has existed that long, am I right?), but I feel like this will be the year I start my podcast! Originally, I wanted it to be about Dayton-area sports and nothing but. In case you don’t know, Dayton’s not a bad lace to be a sports fan. Cincinnati isn’t too far, but Dayton itself has hockey, baseball, basketball, football; a little bit of everything! We have great high school sports, collegiate teams, and pro teams too.

Now, I’m starting to question if I shouldn’t just have a podcast where it’s just me enjoying sharing stuff that interests me (mainly sports.) Suggestions are always welcome (either as a comment on this post or if you’re connected with me on social media.) Either way, it’s time for me to enter the world of podcasting. Hope you join me, whenever this happens!

Third, I’m hoping to meet more broadcasters and more people in the field this year. I’m very lucky to have connected with the ones I know of today, but I’m always looking to expand my network and make new friends. I need to be more social on Twitter (not to mention more interesting, am I right?)

These are three things I’m reaching for in these next 365 days! I hope you join me for the journey!

Until next time,

-Lee
