Safety George Iloka is one of 36 current and former NFL players who will take part in the 12th annual NFL Broadcast Boot Camp April 9-11 at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, OH.
"The Broadcast Boot Camp is Player Engagement's most popular and longest running educational program," said Arthur McAfee, Senior Vice President of NFL Player Engagement. "This is the first time it will be held at Bowling Green State University, and will feature 15 active players and 21 NFL Legends. The participants will benefit from a diverse staff of industry leaders from top broadcast and radio networks."
This year's program will focus on show preparation, radio production and field reporting, and includes the following sessions: "Ethics in Broadcast Journalism", "The Changing News Landscape", "Sports Media Coverage of Social Issues" and "Calling a Game". CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC, NFL Network, Sirius XM and Westwood One Radio are among the networks participating.
The Broadcast Boot Camp is one of several career and professional development programs NFL Player Engagement offers to current and former players and their families. More than 30 players took part in the first annual NFL Speakers Bureau last month, which focused on strategic approaches to effective public speaking and digital storytelling.
