(May 29, 2018) Missouri native Dylan Corbet is setting a strong foundation for his sports broadcasting career in South Dakota. His latest move is to Rapid City for a play-by-play/account executive position at Fox Sports Radio. It comes roughly one year after Corbet moved to The Mount Rushmore State for a job in the small town of Rugby.
“I will be calling more games this year and while continuing to grow as a sports broadcaster in a bigger market,” says Corbet.
Corbet is currently broadcasting Legion baseball across the Upper Midwest. “I will be calling high school football and basketball in the coming seasons. I also contribute to the local talk show, The Nate Brown Show, each weekday on top of my sales executive duties,” he says.
The job in Rugby was Corbet’s first after graduation from Bradley University. “I am so grateful to the Rugby Broadcasters staff. I truly learned a lot during my time there.”
Following up his application helped get Corbet over the top with Fox Sports Rapid City.
“I followed up with a phone call,” he recalls. “I only got a hold of a voicemail. However, I stuck to [STAA’s suggested] guidelines and left a brief message simply stating why I thought I was right for the position. This led to me being named one of the finalists for the position and eventually garnering it.”
Corbet has been an STAA member since 2016. “STAA is helpful in so many different regards. They consistently post job openings that you simply cannot find on your own. Additionally, STAA provides all the tools needed for success, not only in the job application process, but also helping you to improve as a sports broadcaster overall.
“Thank you to the great STAA staff for helping me to continue my sports broadcasting journey.”
