06.25.2020

When sports come back, there is a high probability that many broadcast crews will be forced to work off site. That means a different scenario for play-by-play announcers, analysts and production teams.

In "Going Remote: How to Be Successful on a Remote Broadcast," we've put together a panel of industry leaders:

  • FOX Sports 1 college football analyst Ben Leber;
  • Veteran producer/director Ken Neal (FOX Sports South/Raycom/Tupelo Honey);
  • Veteran FOX Sports South/Raycom play-by-play announcer Tom Werme.

They'll talk about the challenges we all will face and how you can be ready for them. And you can ask the question you want answered.
