My time as a sports reporter/anchor for WVU News has finally come to an end. This semester was truly something I will never forget. This last time around was our special edition show on the heroin epidemic throughout the country and how it’s affected our state of West Virginia. As you can expect, sports had to take a different route but still tie it into the topic.
For our show, I decided to learn about the effects drugs have on an athlete’s body and how the university helps prevent their athletes from falling under the influence. Taking this route allowed me to think outside the box and really get a different angle on sports that reporters tend to not focus on. WVU’s Sports Medicine Staff was more than helpful with providing procedure processes, more information than found through research and were accommodating – which allowed for an excellent special edition piece.
