We view this new relationship with On Campus Sports as an important opportunity for us to provide our community with a unique perspective into their favorite college teams as reported by journalists who attend, and are on the ground at each of the universities covered by On Campus Sports. Sportsideo sees our new relationship with On Campus Sports as an important step toward our goal of celebrating the sports experience for all people who participate in, and who contribute to a sport,” concluded Vesce.
“We’re thrilled to provide this opportunity to our student journalists,” said Rayo Nulsen, President of On Campus Sports. “They come to us for the chance to see their bylines published to a national platform, and now we are able to essentially double their exposure. This is a natural alignment that makes sense for everyone. Sportsideo offers a national distribution channel and state-of-the-art video technology, and in return OCS provides unique, original content from a campus-level perspective that isn’t found in mainstream media. Plus, it’s a great resume builder for our students.”
Fueled by partnerships with Communication and Journalism departments, On Campus Sports currently staffs student journalists at more than 60 campuses, with plans to expand to every Division I university by the Spring of 2013.

Sportsideo (Sports “for that reason”) was founded by professional and amateur athletes to enable all sports participants to connect, improve, and achieve with others in their favorite sports. Sportsideo provides each member of our community with the same “pro experience” enjoyed by professional athletes whenever they enter their locker room – free, easy and instant access to professional and amateur Athletes, Coaches, Scouts, Officials, Agents, Executives, Healthcare Pros, Trainers, Nutritionists, News Reporters, and Sports Organizations. We began Sportsideo with two simple beliefs: 1) Participating in sports is good and helps children and adults lead happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives; and 2) people who share sports experiences improve their understanding of, and respect for each other.
