Collins joins Mahoning Valley broadcast team

Collins-Craig(May 14, 2013) Craig Collins is going to be spending this summer calling baseball in Niles, OH. An STAA client, Collins is joining the Mahoning Valley Scrappers as their No. 2 broadcaster.

The Scrappers are the Class A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians.

Collins will broadcast play-by-play of the middle innings of home games and provide color during the other innings. He’ll also host pre and post-game shows and assist in compiling daily stat packets and daily game notes.

A 2013 graduate of Ball State University, Collins picked-up considerable broadcasting experience on the campus radio station, WCRD. He also worked on BSU’s campus TV station and spent two summers interning at 1070 The Fan in Indianapolis and did some sports update anchoring on the station.

With Mahoning Valley, Collins will work alongside the Scrappers Play-by-Play Broadcaster and Media Relations Director Tim Pozsgai. “I wanted to thank [STAA] as the STAA website and job board allowed us to find qualified candidates from which I was able to find the person that I felt was the best fit for our broadcast,” says Pozsgai.
