Broadcast and Digital Journalism
Zealand Shannon is a professional play-by-play broadcaster signed with UTA. He has called MLS, football, basketball, and a host of other sports for Tourbeau Sports, ACC Network, and Blueframe. He is attending Syracuse for a Master's in Broadcast and Digital Journalism, with a Sports Media and Communications track to take advantage of the free time the unfortunate pandemic has afforded to bolster his journalistic skill set. Shannon graduated from the University of Virginia in 2018 with a double-major in Media Studies and History. His required final historical research explained how methods of communication affected the expansion of the Ottoman Empire. His career goal is to be the lead play-by-play broadcaster at a major network.
