Applications for fall crews are now open. We are opening up applications early because we need to figure out what games we can travel to and book that travel as early as possible. After the success of our most recent Launch campaign, we are working to send people to cover non-revenue sports in addition to all of the football games in the fall.
To apply for a broadcast crew:
Please send your resume, a cover letter indicating your experience with WMUC Sports and preferences for fall sports (Football, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, field hockey, volleyball), and a tape of you broadcasting to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’ve broadcasted for us or any another outlet, please proved a link or attach a file of that broadcast. If you have not, you can just mute the TV and record yourself calling a game. We are working to improve our broadcasts and want to put the best products out there. Having a sample of your broadcasting skills is critical for determining crews.
To apply for a news crew/insider position:
Please send your resume, a cover letter indicating your experience with WMUC Sports and preferences for fall sports (Football, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, field hockey, volleyball), and two clips to email@example.com. Each fall crew will have 3 to 4 news writers who will attend games and postgame interviews. Writers will submit articles to our news director, Max Marcilla, following the game. Articles will be a recap of the game including quotes, but also will need to find some sort of storyline. The deadline will be 1-2 hours after the game and will be strictly enforced. Articles should be finished while the writer is still at the press box after the game as the press area remains open. We want to remain competitive with other publications and missing deadlines will not be tolerated.
For insider positions:
We are looking for dedicated, responsible, and hard working reporters to be our fall sports beat reporters. Each reporter will cover their own fall sport. These reporters will be responsible for being that sport’s insider. Insiders will attend their sport’s media availability once a week as well as games. The two main responsibilities include: recording a weekly interview for WMUC Sports website at the media availability and assist broadcasters at games with in game analysis/halftime reports. Weekly interviews with players and coaches will also be sent to Max Marcilla for editing and posting.
Unlike news, this position requires two published clips and an example that will showcase your reporting abilities to our executive staff. Send your resume, clips, reporting examples, and top two fall sport preferences to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bonus-To apply for our graphics team:
Recently, WMUC Sports put together some graphics for Maryland’s Championship lacrosse teams and they received great traction on Twitter. Obviously pictures garner more attention on social media than just a post with text. We are looking for a few creative Photoshop or Illustrator users to put together some templates during the summer (no hard deadlines) that we can use for the next year. In addition, we could ask you to make a graphic for a big event or for each team’s schedules as we prepare for the next season. Email email@example.com wit
We’re excited to get the ball rolling on what should be another successful year for WMUC Sports. And remember, Your Terps. Your Station.
