Ball State Sports Link: 3rd Down Chirp (Spring)
Ball State Sports Link, the nation's first fully immersive sports media and production program, produced its weekly football show in partnership with WIPB-TV, Comcast Indiana and Fox College Sports in 2012.
The 3rd Down Chirp Spring Special, presented by Dillman's Furniture in Muncie, followed the Cardinals on and off the field during the spring season.
Additional distribution for 3rd Down Chirp includes WIPB-TV in Muncie and statewide availability on Comcast Indiana 81 and the SL channel through Comcast on Demand.
Created by 2012 SL graduate Ben Wagner, the 2012 version of 3rd Down Chirp was produced by senior Joey Buschur. Sophomore Drew Adamson is the assistant producer.
Seniors Pat Boylan, Chris Renkel and Timmy Fogarty were the hosts and coordinating producers. All 28 students in the immersive learning program assisted with weekly content production.
