BEVERLY, Mass. – In partnership with the Endicott College Department of Athletics and Recreation during the 2018 fall semester, Endicott College Television (ECTV) broadcast all home football games to create experiential opportunities for students interested in learning more about live video production.
Since then, the partnership between Endicott Athletics and ECTV has continued to blossom into the program broadcasting several other sports including men's and women's basketball, men's and women's ice hockey, and men's volleyball. ECTV will also broadcast the women's lacrosse contest between Endicott on Roger Williams on April 20.
With the foundation now set from this year's slate of contests, the goal moving forward for the partnership is to increase the number of games covered year-to-year in order to facilitate additional opportunities for student development in the academic discipline.
WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT THE ENDICOTT ATHLETICS/ECTV PARTNERSHIP
Eleanor Pye, Endicott's Director of the Digital Media Center and ECTV Advisor
"Working with the students to provide multi-camera, live sports coverage has been a true thrill. Not only do they develop skills they wouldn't get in a classroom, but, also a number of people in the stands during the games have told me they are enjoying the enhanced coverage. It's a win-win for both our students and our audience."

"Working live multi-camera shoots has given me the experience needed to take on different roles within the field. Being able to adapt to different positions has helped me realize what I want to do after I graduate."
Mya Girouard '20
"Getting to hear parents say that they were thankful for ECTV's live broadcast of their son or daughter's sports game because they weren't able to come out that day is very rewarding."
