Rowan Students Earn National Recognition From CBI

STATE — College Broadcasters Inc., a national organization representing students involved in media ventures, has recognized students in the Department of Radio, Television and Film (RTF) in Rowan University’s College of Communication.

Two Rowan productions have been named finalists in the National Student Production Awards presented by CBI, an organization representing students involved in radio, television, web casting and other media ventures.


Rowan Television Network (RTN) was one of four finalists in CBI’s “Best Live Sports Production” category. RTN was recognized for its coverage of the 2009 Profs football game between Rowan and Montclair State University. The other finalists in the category hail from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, St. Cloud University, and the University of Texas at Austin.

Produced by RTN sports director Corey Scheiner, a junior RTF major from Old Bridge, the Profs football broadcast was directed by Marissa Lombardi of Clark, who graduated with her bachelor’s degree in RTF from Rowan in May. Scheiner and Adam Bradshaw, a senior RTF major from Kalamazoo, Mich provided the commentary.

In the “Best Technical Production” audio category, Mike O’Brien, a junior RTF major from Westwood, was named a finalist for his work, “No Speed Zone.” The production was created for Rowan’s “Sound Communication” class last year.

The winners will be announced at CBI’s national conference in October in Louisville.
