March Madness

March Madness

The short pieces you see here represent countless elements I’ve put together supporting the studio portion of the live broadcast of March Madness for CBS Sports and Turner Sports over many years. It’s a privilege to be part of such an influential event that captures the attention of the entire country, not to mention a highly professional team that includes luminaries like Charles Barkley.

In the year of COVID, CBS Sports did a remarkable job of transitioning to remote editing. Generally, I now work remotely on the broadcast of the NFL season in the fall and winter, including the Super Bowl. However, for March Madness, my role is to support directly the live studio broadcast, which means showing up in person at the Broadcast Center in Manhattan.

Working on the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament requires the ability to turnaround edits FAST. Our edit room is responding to the needs of the control room as they react to events in real time. Being able to manage high-pressure – sometimes even panic – is an essential part of the job for the editor.
