ComRadio in an Empire State of Mind

It looks as if Jared Odrick is not the only Penn Stater heading to New York City Thursday for the 2010 NFL Draft. For the second time in that many years, Penn State’s very own ComRadio–represented by Dan Krupinsky and Brian Tripp– will also be in attendance, providing a live broadcast  to everyone in Happy Valley.

An event like the NFL Draft is a media frenzy; ESPN runs continuous 7-round coverage, while every other major media outlet covers it like white on rice. It goes without saying that it creates a very competitive media market, headlined by the talking heads on sports networks like  John Clayton, Mike Golic, and Chris Mortensen.

But they don’t scare off Krupinsky and crew. As the only student-run newscast at the draft, ComRadio knows no intimidation. They go right after the big guns, interviewing people like Mortensen, Tom Verducci, former Penn State football stars, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. “I would shoot for the highest I could get, and really did get shot down a lot” said Krupinsky, but being shot down never halted ComRadio’s goal to be at the draft.

The two Sports Directors, Krupinsky and Tripps, hope to extend their horizons even more this year. The chance to interview the top prospects like Sam Bradford, Ndamukong Suh, and others will be available during a Play 60 event on Wednesday. Tune into ComRadio Wednesday night at 9:35 p.m. to catch these interviews and a preview analysis of this year’s draft.

ComRadio will begin coverage of the 2010 NFL Draft Thursday evening at 6:35 p.m. and will continue broadcast Friday at 6:00 p.m. Saturday will be a mixture of the Blue and White Game along with the final 4 rounds of the draft beginning at 9:30 a.m.– get the best of both worlds!
