Sports Writers and Videographers Needed
The PAC-12 conference is looking to add more students to the Pac-12 roster of writers and video producers.

The students will get exposure on our website www.pac12.org, which will be growing into a much broader platform when the Pac-12 Network and Digital Network gets launched in August 2012. There will certainly be times when we use information in these stories to pitch feature ideas to national outlets. Last year, one of our student writers did a story on a University of Washington women’s golfer that ultimately turned into a feature by USA Today.

If you’re interested in participating please send an email to Kirk Reynolds at kreynolds@pac-12.org and we will tailor a plan around their schedules. We will edit stories to make sure they fit on the conference website.
