SM Students Work on ESPN2 Summer TV Special

SM’s very own director of broadcast journalism Paul Higgins is the owner and president of Athletes in Motion Sports Television, Inc. Athletes in Motion has produced hundreds of programs for ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN International, ESPNU, CSTV, The Mountain Network, Fox, Speed, OLN (Versus), Oxygen, Regional Network Affiliates, and local cable.

In his latest project, SM broadcast students had the opportunity to be a part of the production team of the viral-video inspired by a Japanese game show phenomenon called, "Slippery Stairs." For the first time ever, Athletes in Motion Sports Television has brought this fun game show to the United States. The show aired in August on ESPN. Check out the teaser below.
