The 2015-2016 Hockey season is about to begin and while the NHL may be the most watched, pure hockey fans can’t wait for the amateur leagues to start. The problem for them has always been finding the games on TV. Not anymore! If your TV’s hooked up to Google or Roku, you can now have access to over 25,000 live games each year and over 100,000 games on demand. In addition you can watch all the games on any computer, Android or iOS smart device, thanks to a broadcasting company based in Needham Massachusetts, called FASTHockey.
How do they staff up for so many games across the country? With help from graduates of nearby Connecticut School of Broadcasting! FASTHockey’s Andrew Sheehan, Broadcast Operations, is just one of the many talented CSB grads working at this exciting company. “Right after graduating, I responded to job postings on the school website for interns. Simultaneously I started working for FASTHockey and Fox 25. My passion for sports made FASTHockey a perfect fit and thanks to my training at CSB I was able to move up the ladder. Today I seek out CSB grads because I know I can always count on them to be reliable, professional, willing to get their feet wet and most importantly, they want to be here!”
Steve Williams, Connecticut School of Broadcasting Director in Needham, couldn’t agree more, “While several of our students have gone on to work locally for FASTHockey, last year we had a graduate called out to Minnesota to do play-by-play for a 4 day Tournament. That’s what we do. We provide the hands-on training, on the exact equipment and programs being used in the industry today. Our graduates are prepared for an immediate career in broadcasting.” For more information about a career in sports, audio/video production or any other area of TV, Radio or Digital Broadcasting, contact Connecticut School of Broadcasting’s Boston campus at 781-559-0005 or log on to www.gocsb.com to find a campus near you.
