Durham College students put the spotlight on sports

Senior students from Durham College’s (DC) Broadcasting – Radio and Contemporary Media program are hitting it out of the park with their series The Untitled Sports Show, which airs on Rogers TV Durham.

Creator and producer, Nick Konarowski is joined on-air by classmates Mike Bryen and Phil McCabe as well as Sport Business Management graduate Christian Skirdine.

Together, these DC students use skills from their respective programs to explore the world of sports in Durham Region. The Untitled Sports Show is a mixture of in-studio sports chat and on-location segments with athletes. Konarowski pitched the idea to Rogers TV in the spring and the team of DC students filmed the show throughout the summer. The first 30-minute episode was aired on September 27.

In addition to profiling the guest athletes, they take the opportunity to learn from them – with a little friendly competition too. The guest athlete is asked to teach the students and their audience an element of their sport. The co-hosts then split into two teams to try it out themselves. 

“We had Toronto Argonauts kicker Swayze Waters teach us how to kick a field goal,” said Konarowski. “Mike Bryen won that challenge.”

Konarowski graduated from Trent University with a bachelor of arts but decided to return to school at DC in the hopes of turning his hobby into a career. He shares his passion for sports with the Durham community as a new episode of The Untitled Sports Show airs each week.
