Kanab High School (KHS) students were able to participate in the first ever sports broadcast training on January 28, 2011, with a special broadcast of the Kanab Cowboys vs. the Parowan Rams in Region 13 Boys basketball action.

Stan Everett led a group from the Dixie State College-Dick Nourse Center for Media Innovation, VODDOV.com, Center for Education, Business, and the Arts (CEBA), and Kanab High School (KHS) in a partnership to host the special training and broadcast.

Everett and his crew showcased a trailer load of highly expensive and specialized broadcasting equipment to the KHS students, including a tutorial on how to use the equipment in various functions required in producing a high quality live sports broadcast.

Following the training, and under the guidance of Everett and his crew, the KHS students fulfilled all the essential positions needed to broadcast the basketball game. “The students did a remarkable job executing their roles with the broadcast and we look forward to traveling to Kanab for more broadcasting opportunities in the future,” remarked Stan Everett, Broadcast Communication Director at Dixie State College.

The student’s involvement included executing everything from operating cameras, play by play announcing, and editing the live feed from the game to the broadcast trailer situated outside the KHS gym.

“What a remarkable opportunity and experience for the students to be participants in and we appreciate the time and efforts of everyone involved to make the training successful,” said Trevor Stewart, counselor at Kanab High School.
