ABOUT THE SPORTS BROADCASTING CAMP

The Nation's Premier Sports Broadcasting Camp!

The Sports Broadcasting Camp is the longest running sportscasting camp in the country, established in 2001. Our next camp from July 18-22, 2022 will be conducted at Montclair State University's School of Communication TV and Radio Studios. The camp is intended for students ages 12-19.

 

Over the last 20 years we have hosted a "who's who" of leading national and local sportscasters as our teachers, team captains, and guest speakers (list below). Our programs are a perfect mix of actually recording sports broadcast projects and learning the tricks of the trade from sportscast industry leaders.

Some projects students may produce include:

  • Announce a Somerset Patriots minor league baseball game
    Sportstalk radio shows

  • FOX/ESPN-type big event pre-game shows with a panel

  • Play-by-play and color commentary of games

  • Writing and delivering a nightly sportscast on-camera using TelePrompter

  • TV Interviews in one-on-one and press conference settings

  • On-camera show opens

  • And more….

Our History

In 2001, former college sports information director and corporate PR director David Siroty founded The Sports Broadcasting Camp.  For the first 15 years, we were known as the Bruce Beck and Ian Eagle Sports Broadcasting Camp and the event was held one week every summer at the Yogi Berra Museum in Little Falls, New Jersey.  Bruce and Ian did phenomenal work with our campers and worked long and hard to provide them with inside knowledge and broadcast skills.  We then transitioned to the Chris Carrino and Tim Capstraw Sports Broadcasting Camp, partnering with the Brooklyn Nets radio announcers.  For two years, we operated in the gorgeous state-of-the-art studios at Montclair State University's School of Communication and Media.  When the pandemic hit, we pivoted successfully to the virtual world. In 2020 and 2021, Dave Popkin joined Tim Capstraw, Craig D'Amico, Sam Kuperman, and friends for various online sessions, which were met with rave reviews from students and parents.  In 2022, we attempt to go back in-person at the state-of-the-art Montclair State University TV and radio studios, providing campers with a first-class experience. Onward we go, training the sportscasters of the future!
