Runners Network

Welcome to the Runners Network, a new service from the Sports Video Group and the Broadcast Education Association designed to make it easier for sports production professionals to find qualified production assistants and runners to assist on productions.

Below are the names of professors who teach TV broadcasting at some of our nation’s finest institutions. Each of them has also expressed an interest in working with you to find students within their programs who can best meet your needs.

Please feel free to contact them via email or phone to find suitable assistance for your upcoming productions.

To contact the SVG or BEA with any questions, comments or suggestions please send an email to runners@sportsvideo.org and Ken Kerschbaumer or Michael Bruce will get in contact. Professors interested in making their students available can also contact Ken or Michael at the email address above.
