By Lucy McElroy

Director of Video Services, Byron Abt is new to campus this year and is recruiting students interested in assisting in USC Upstate Athletics broadcasting, according to Fine Arts and Communication Studies.

Students are encouraged to apply for paid part-time work in the athletics department’s video services.

Abt is also searching for experienced crews to help him reestablish the sports broadcast studio in the Hodge Center. He aims to form television, radio, and talk show crews to shoot games and to interview athletes.

Abt is accustomed to working with students. As Lead Camera Operator at the University of Missouri for three years, Abt educated students on setting up and operating broadcast level equipment. He also works as a freelance camera operator for ESPN.

Internships and student assistant positions will become available in the future. Email Abt at for more information.
