ESPN Host and Play-by-Play broadcaster Anish Shroff, Comcast Sportsnet Houston Host and Reporter Howard Chen and KILT Houston Sports radio Host Nick Wright were part of “Making the Calls: The State of Diversity in Sports Media,” hosted by Syracuse University’s Newhouse School.
The Newhouse School today revealed plans to name its renovated studio facilities Dick Clark Studios in honor of legendary entertainer and alumnus Dick Clark '51. The announcement was made by Clark's widow, Kari Clark, at the school's annual Mirror Awards ceremony honoring excellence in media industry reporting.
Students from Syracuse's Fowler High School partnered with undergraduates from the S.I.
