St. John’s University’s Television Network (STJ-TV) and ESPN
have joined forces to carry 60 live, student-produced Red Storm sporting events
that will appear on the popular ESPN3 network.
Each game — produced by a team of students, alumni and industry
professionals — will be accessible in more than 83 million homes
for fans who receive their Internet or video service from an
affiliated provider. The University is one of six academic
institutions in the United States to forge its own agreement with
ESPN3 this year.
"We are excited about STJ-TV, our collaboration with ESPN3 and
what this endeavor provides St. John's University in terms of
exposure and a hands-on educational experience for students," said
Chris Monasch ’81SVC, St. John's Director of Athletics. "This
agreement was the culmination of emerging technology, hard work by
our staff and an outstanding relationship with ESPN.”
