Indiana State University along with the rest of the Missouri Valley Conference struck a 10 year deal with ESPN back in July according to State Magazine. The deal includes a minimum of 820 events a year ESPN must show including a minimum of 70 men’s basketball games in the final six years of the agreement.
Students from the universities will get in on the action as ESPN will rely on university media departments to help with the telecasts and on-air talent for some of the sporting events. This will help students learn their craft during live events.
