Tyler Graham of AT&T Sportsnet gives hands-on broadcasting lesson

Tyler Graham, Associate Director of PIttsburgh Pirates Baseball for AT&T Sportsnet joined the inaugural Broadcast 1 class this past Wednesday, providing incredible insight into the "storytelling" of a live sports event using replays and placement and cutting of multiple cameras.

Mr. Graham was "hands-on," along with Kevin Wheeler, Pitt's Coordinating Producer for the ACC Network, with each of the 16 students in the class. Students cut replays and implemented the replays based on the event director's instructions.  

The University of Pittsburgh's Broadcast 1 class focuses on the elements of live event and news broadcasts. The class uses a critical approach in the classroom on Monday, followed by implementation in Pitt Studios on Wednesday.
