What is the One Day Ticket to Sportscasting Success?

When you attend the One Day Ticket to Sportscasting Success seminar (ODT) you'll gain knowledge, motivation, and forge new relationships. You'll leave fired up to pursue your sportscasting goals. Our seminar has helped sports broadcasters discover new methods and make connections to get jobs. Plus, you'll hear from a roster of industry leading speakers who share stories from their careers behind the mic.

This annual seminar is held during the National Sports Media Association awards weekend, providing ample opportunity to soak in the best that sports media has to offer.
