10th Annual STAA All-America Program

The STAA All-America Competition recognizes the most outstanding collegiate radio and TV sports broadcasters. Our mission is to encourage collegiate sportscasters to strive to achieve their best.

Each spring, the nation’s most outstanding collegiate sportscaster is presented the Jim Nantz Award, named in honor of the award winning CBS sports broadcaster.

However, there is no guarantee the 2018 Jim Nantz Award winner is on this list.
