Mitch Gerber Announces Departure From Penn State Athletics

Penn State Athletics host and report Mitch Gerber is leaving Happy Valley for a new gig in college athletics.

Gerber, who served as the face of Penn State football’s postgame show and podcast, will move on to a new chapter with creative agency J1S after spending four years with Penn State Athletics. He’ll presumably help the agency manage its Name, Image, and Likeness efforts with student-athletes.

“It has been one hell of a ride with unforgettable experiences, powerful tories shared, lasting relationships built and a lot accomplished as a brand,” Gerber said on Twitter. “I’m going to miss sharing the impactful stories of Penn State student-athletes, coaches, support staff members, administrators and Nittany Lion fans during some of the biggest moments in collegiate sports.”

When he wasn’t at Beaver Stadium, Gerber often helped Penn State cover its basketball and wrestling teams, too. More recently, he lent a hand at THON by serving as its Pep Rally emcee.

“Penn State is a special place,” Gerber wrote. “Thanks for four memorable years, Penn State Athletics.”
