Broadcasting for Summer Leagues

Thomas Goslowski ’12 is spending his summer working as a radio broadcaster and weekly talk show contributor for the Geneva Red Wings and the Syracuse Salt Cats. The Red Wings are a member of the New York Collegiate Baseball League while the Salt Cats are a member of the Eastern Collegiate Baseball League. Both are summer wood bat development leagues for professional baseball.

Goslowski’s duties involve broadcasting home games, interviewing players and coaches, compiling statistics, and writing post-game reports for the websites. He also serves as the media director for the Salt Cats. The broadcasts for the Red Wings can be heard on WHWS 105.7 FM and online for both teams using the teams’ websites.

“From a young age, I have loved all types of sports and I knew I was very comfortable talking about sports,” he says.  “This is an incredible opportunity.”

Citing his connections and experiences at HWS as a definite benefit, Goslowski says he discovered the internship through his first-year roommate Michael Rivera, who is also working for the Red Wings. He believes he is well-prepared for his job thanks to his work at the Colleges’ radio stations WEOS 89.7 FM and WHWS for the past two years where he provided color commentary for Hobart hockey along with Hobart and William Smith basketball.

“I was very excited to be offered the positions,” says Goslowski hopes to become a professional sports broadcaster.

Aside from his work at HWS, in August 2009, Goslowski broadcasted two innings of a Time Warner Television Telecast featuring the International League’s Syracuse Chiefs.  Goslowski worked alongside current Chief’s play-by-play broadcaster Jason Benetti and former major leaguer Steve Grille.

“I really appreciate the advice they shared with me during the broadcast and I am truly thankful for it,” he says.

 A double major in media and society and political science, Goslowski is also a member of the Hobart Football team and was a 2009 Liberty League All-Academic Selection.
