(October 30, 2012) Pete Sousa is returning to radio full time and he couldn’t be more thrilled. An STAA client, Sousa is the new play-by-play broadcaster and TV show host for the Springfield Armor.
The Armor is the NBA Development League affiliate of the Brooklyn Nets.
Sousa learned of the opportunity through the job notifications he receives as an STAA Premier member. “It’s a great perk of being a [Premier] client,” says Sousa.
Once Sousa had the job lead, he put his network to good use.
“I have a lot of contacts in the NBA D-League so I started working the phones and got my cover letter and sound to the folks in Springfield.”
Sousa is a former radio host and sideline reporter for the Charlotte Bobcats, but more recently has been working in corporate public relations. With his broadcasting limited to freelance work, Sousa was itching to get back in the game.
“I was really pushing to get back into radio full time. This is a great opportunity for me because it puts me on the path to eventually call NBA games, which is my goal.”
