Spurs’ Bonner Interested in Sportscasting After NBA?
The players’ union operated five career-development programs last summer: Coaching, front-office management, real estate, business and broadcasting, which was the program at Syracuse that (Spurs’ forward Matt) Bonner attended. The subjects of these programs were the result of a league-wide survey of players: These were the areas they were interested in exploring.
Sportscaster U. was held at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications for four days in early June. Bonner’s seven classmates were Amar’e Stoudemire, Kelenna Azubuike, Danny Granger, Randy Foye, Robbie Hummel, Nazr Mohammed and Jason Thompson. Registration was limited in order to provide maximum air time for the students. More than 70% of the program’s participants have gone onto make careers in broadcasting, including Shaquille O’Neal.
“It’s very intensive,” said Bonner. “There’s no messing around. They try to teach you as much as they possibly can in those four days. You get guidance and experts in the field and it was just an awesome experience.”
