This renowned sportcaster got his start at the Newhouse School.

Some of the nation’s foremost sportcasters got their education—and their start behind the microphone—as students at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. With its reputation as “Sportcaster U,” Syracuse is the alma mater of such renowned broadcasters as Bob Costas ’74, Mike Tirico ’88, Sean McDonough ’84, Len Berman ’68, G’70, Marv Albert ’63, Andy Musser ’59, and Hank Greenwald ’57, to name just a few. Many of them learned their craft as students calling games for SU’s public radio station WAER—a training ground that continues today for future sportscaster stars.
