Sennheiser Gives Weekend Internship to Worthy Student

Sennheiser has teamed up with Fox Sports to encourage young people to learn the art of sports broadcasting through hands-on experience.

Sennheiser has teamed up with Fox Sports to encourage young people to learn the art of sports broadcasting through hands-on experience. Sennheiser director of market development for the Eastern region David Missall started the program and selected its first student, junior Michael Stevens of Ball State University. Stevens worked with industry veteran Fred Aldous in the Fox Sports mix truck and the Coca Cola 600 NASCAR race in Charlotte, N.C.

"I don't see a lot of people coming up behind my generation," said Aldous, who holds the dual titles of Fox Sports audio consultant and senior mixer, in a statement. "Most students are fixated on breaking into the music, recording, or live sound markets. I think it's important to show students that there are careers outside of the music business."

"It's well-known that the broadcast industry is struggling with a shallow talent pool," said Missall. "With the contacts that we have at Sennheiser, I said, 'Why don't we start connecting the broadcasters with the universities?'""

"I was surprised at how much actually goes into that broadcast," said Stevens.

Based on the success of this initial program, Sennheiser plans to repeat the internship program on an annual or semi-annual basis.
