ESPN Rhoden Fellowship, 2019/2020 – Bristol, CT 06010

A day in the life: The Rhoden Fellows will report on the many facets of life on historically black colleges and universities (HBCU), essentially answering the question: What is it like to be an HBCU student in the 21st century? The fellows will serve as on-campus correspondents and will be expected to produce daily, weekly and monthly multi-media content for The Undefeated. This will include weekly conference calls, and participating behind-the-scene work at various athletic conferences and events, such as the Sun Belt Basketball tournament in New Orleans, the Big 12 football championship and basketball tournament, the NCAA Final Four and the NFL Combine and Draft. Students will also produce and edit a weekly podcast about sports and HBCU culture.
