My Swan Song

My Swan Song

Since my return from Rio and the 2016 Olympic Games, I’ve had an eventful beginning to my senior at and away from Loyola University.

Once a week, I make the trip to Fairfax, VA to host the PrepZone and QB Academy on DMVStream.com. These shows highlight top athletes, teams and plays in the D.C., Maryland and Virginia regions.

DMVStream.com CEO and Founder B.J. Koubaroulis brings a wealth of experience to the television business and I feel privileged to be working closely with him.

Here’s a snapshot of the QB Academy alongside 2010 All-Met Player of the Year and my analyst Michael Nebrich.

When I’m not attending classes or wearing my host ‘hat’, you can find me in my Media Production role for Loyola athletics. To ensure a Patriot League Network broadcast runs as planned, our team consists of a graphics controller, replay personnel, camera operators, on-air talent and a director. When asked, I’m comfortable fulfilling any one of these roles.

Here’s a snapshot (photo taken by Julia D’Agostino, Loyola senior) from a September volleyball match in my camera operator role.

If you’ve followed my blog before, you know I interned with Monumental Sports & Entertainment last spring in Washington, D.C.

The first week of September, I met Jumoke Davis – my former supervisor at Monumental – for lunch so we could both bring each other up to speed.

Riddle me this one: I walked away from that lunch with a part-time, paid position with Monumental up until graduation. This is a season-long commitment. I’m thrilled to be a part of the team.

Ironically enough, my first day was Wizards Media Day at the Verizon Center. It was a media frenzy.

I spent the majority of the day in the scrums grabbing sound from players and coaches. For the first time, I hopped on Facebook Live from Media Day. This is something I’ll make time for more often to give my network of friends a better idea of my day-to-day.

Check out a few snapshots from that busy day:

What’s ahead:

For now, I’ll continue to work in Washington two days a week and host in Fairfax on Wednesday afternoons. Once basketball season rolls around, I’m hoping to further my on-air role for Loyola athletics as sideline reporter and post-game/in-game interviewer.

Keep up with me on Twitter (@BobTrosset) and as always, thanks for the read.  (more…)
