Finalists Announced For 2016 SVG/NACDA College Sports Media Awards

The Sports Video Group (SVG) and the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) are pleased to announce finalists for the 2016 SVG/NACDA College Sports Media Awards.

CSMA2016NewWinners will be selected by a panel of judges and announced at the Eighth-Annual College Sports Media Awards ceremony on June 2 at the SVG College Sports Summit at the Omni Hotel at CNN Center in Atlanta. The event will be hosted by FOX Sports’ Joel Klatt.

Representing a variety of college athletic and academic departments, as well as professional networks, production companies, and student productions, the finalists are spread across four divisions in a total of 20 categories.

“What stands out among the body of work submitted to this year’s College Sports Media Awards competition is the high level of expertise in producing a wide variety of live sports, for multiple platforms, deploying emerging technologies,” says Tom Buffolano, Chairman of the SVG/NACDA College Sports Media Awards. “The quality of programming that was only produced by Major Networks only a few years ago, is now produced at all levels, most notably by students at universities. This is a trend that will produce the new generation of sports production professionals who will further evolve the industry.”

The Sports Video Group and NACDA extend their congratulations to all of the finalists. To learn more about the SVG/NACDA College Sports Media Awards, and to register for the SVG College Sports Summit visit www.svgcollege.com. Follow the event on Facebook and Twitter.
