Students Assist WBZ-TV4’s Coverage of Boston Marathon
April 15, 2011
Lauren Prall '11 and Leslie DiBona '11 were behind the scenes on "Marathon Monday" helping to ensure WBZ-TV4's coverage of the 115th Boston Marathon ran smoothly.
As part if their internship with TRACS, Inc., a global sports marketing and event management firm, the Emmanuel students were key members of the Race SpotWatch live coverage team, comprised of volunteers responsible for tracking the progress of elite athletes throughout the race. Prall and DiBona, both management majors at the College, remained in-studio during the marathon, relaying timely reports from spotters on the course to producers, directors and on-air talent.
During a recent planning meeting for the event coverage, Prall and DiBona traveled to the WBZ-TV4 studio and had the chance to meet anchors Steve Burton and Lisa Hughes.
