(March 7, 2012) Tyler Maun is taking his career to the next level and moving up to AA baseball. An STAA client, Maun has been hired as a Broadcasting and Media Assistant with the Altoona Curve.
Maun will work alongside fellow STAA client Mike Passanisi, the team’s Director of Communications. The Curve is the Class AA affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Maun is excited to take the next step in his career. “To go to an organization like the Pirates, with all the talent they have coming up, and to be in a league like the Eastern League is very exciting.”
When Altoona first opened up the position to applications, Maun was not among the applicants. However, after a friend tipped off Maun that the hiring process was taking longer than anticipated, Maun contacted the team.
“I have a couple friends who have worked for Altoona and they have nothing but good things to say,” Maun says.
“[Altoona] seems like a very appealing place. Being in Myrtle Beach [with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans] the past several years, Altoona is a similar setup, so that was appealing to me.”
Prior to spending three seasons with the Pelicans, Maun was a morning show host for Mile High Sports Radio in Denver. Maun has also been the halftime and postgame host, plus fill-in basketball play-by-play voice for the University of Denver.
Maun has been an STAA client since 2007. He’s happy the company has continued to grow, alongside his career.
“I can literally say that every single job I’ve gotten in sportscasting can be attributed to STAA,” says Maun.
“I can still remember where I was when I got my first position through STAA with Mile High Sports in Denver. Ironically the guy who was my first boss there, Tim Neverett, is now a TV voice with the Pirates, so it’s ironic that I am now in the same organization. The way I’ve seen STAA grow by leaps and bounds through the past five years has been incredible and has really been a huge asset for me.”
