SCP 12: Get a baseball broadcasting job

Among the topics we cover:

  • Suggestions for making yourself a viable candidate for a broadcasting/media relations job in minor league baseball without media relations experience
  • Why Wayne wasn’t afraid of how moving from Double to Single-A would look on his resume
  • Why a Triple-A broadcasting job is often not more valuable than a Single or Double-A job in getting a person closer to the Majors

This podcast is an excerpt from a longer interview with Wayne. The full-length interview includes Wayne’s advice for which is more valuable — accepting an MLB pre and post position with no play-by-play, or continuing to broadcast MiLB games, how Wayne got a No. 1 job in Double-A, just one year out of college, and more.
