2020 SVG College Sports Media Awards Crown Best in Collegiate Video Production

The 2020 SVG College Sports Media Awards (CSMAs) presented in association with NACDA, sponsored by Ross Video, is officially in the books, and the best of the best were honored for their work over the last year of collegiate athletics.

During the virtual ceremony, that was held on Thursday, June 26 at 7 p.m. ET, a cast of familiar faces in the college community made an appearance to hand out the hardware. The masters of ceremonies, who were also five former hosts of the CSMAs in years past, included ESPN’s Rece Davis, Jen Lada, and Tom Rinaldi; Fox Sports’ Joel Klatt; and NCAA.com and BTN’s Andy Katz. To introduce these personalities, the event was joined by Temple University’s Kevin Copp, Duke University’s Rebecca Fiorentino, the Mountain West Conference’s Jesse Kurtz, UCLA’s Suzi Mellano, and the Big 12 Conference’s Morgan Uber.

College Sports Media Awards winners and finalists are selected by a blue-ribbon panel of industry peers and celebrate the very best in college-sports-video production. For more information on the SVG/NACDA College Sports Media Awards, visit www.collegesportsmediaawards.com
