AWSM is 1,000-member national nonprofit organization

Samford’s chapter of the Association of Women in Sports Media (AWSM) continues to encourage female students who are interested in careers in the field.

Since 2017, the chapter has extended the mission of a 1,000-member national nonprofit organization that promotes increased diversity in sports media through career-enhancement networking, mentoring initiatives and an internship and scholarship program.

This semester, two speakers have brought their expertise to Samford in support of the organization's aims. Former World Wrestling Entertainment broadcaster Renee Young and reporter and AWSM alumna Giana Han met with students online to describe their professional paths and offer encouragement.
