Arnold Sports Festival Desk Anchor and Field Reporter
Held in Columbus, Ohio since 1989, The Arnold Sports Festival started as a professional bodybuilding competition, The Arnold Classic, and has morphed into a multiple day, multi-sport festival. The event brings in about 200,000 visitors to Columbus, who watch around 30,000 athletes perform in 50+ sports over three days. One point of pride for the event producers is this event brings in more athletes than the Olympics.
LIVE! Technologies has been the event production partner for the Arnold Sports Festival for the last twenty years and our creative team has been producing the promotional materials for the last ten years. Starting last year they began webstreaming the two main stages from the weekend and had a field reporter doing stand-ups and interviews with: athletes, judges, coaches, support staff and attendees. In an effort to drive more digital traffic to the webstream this year they have decided to add a sports desk and anchor.
They are looking for two students that would fill the role of desk anchor and field reporter.
The field reporter would be doing short interviews throughout the Columbus Convention Center and The Ohio Expo Center, the two main venues of the weekend. These interviews will be cutdown to produce 5-minute “Live from the Arnold” video packages. The desk anchor will be conducting longer interviews, around 30-minutes, with: athletes, coaches, sports chairpeople, Classic Productions staff and other support staff. The desk anchor will be live streamed from a satellite studio we will have set-up at the Columbus Convention Center. Think ESPN Game Day.
The event is the first weekend of March and we would need whoever we would work with to be in Columbus from February 28th until March 4th.
