The Newhouse School has been named the official academic partner of Sports PR Summit, an annual, invite-only event that brings together senior PR and digital media executives, sports reporters and professional athletes for dynamic panels and conversations. The 2022 event will be held May 17 at Canoe Studios in New York City.
Through this partnership, the school’s Sports Media Center will provide logistical and strategic support for the Sports PR Summit during the annual event and throughout the year. This will include event execution, planning and assistance with various communications tasks. Students will also help to grow content creation through various channels.
“The Newhouse School is one of the best in the world and has turned out some of the biggest names in the sports media today. Launching the Sports PR Summit Awards in partnership with them is something that will allow us to honor excellence in our industry for years to come,” says Sports PR Summit founder and CEO Brian Berger.
In addition, the Sports PR Summit and Sports Media Center will launch the Sports PR Summit Awards to honor excellence in the sports PR industry later this year.
“As the Newhouse Sports Media Center continues to develop hands-on learning opportunities for our students, the Sports PR Summit is the ideal partner to provide exposure to the biggest names in the industry for our growing sports PR and athlete advocacy programs,” says center director Olivia Stomski. “We are equally excited by the opportunity to recognize industry leaders with the creation of the Sports PR Summit Awards.”
