Big Ten Network

BBA, Marketing, Sports Management, 2014


I am entering my fifth year at the Big Ten Network (BTN) in Chicago. My role as the Senior Communications Coordinator involves Public Relations, Social Media, and Digital Marketing. From the PR side of things, I work with sportswriters, TV and media who cover the Big Ten from a national perspective and each individual school market, to promote BTN initiatives and programming. From a Social Media and Digital Marketing side, I work to promote the network in the digital space with social media influencers, former Big Ten athletes and coordinate digital promotion with the Big Ten athletic departments. I also manage our on-campus social media correspondents and post content across BTN's digital platforms.
