New BEK Sports Staff
As we prepare for another exciting season of BEK Sport, we are thrilled to welcome some new faces to the BEK Sports staff. New Players on the BEK Sports Employee Roster:
Sometimes parents have a tremendous influence on their children’s walk in life. Case in point – Scott Loerch begins a new career path with BEK Sports to realize his passion for sports and broadcasting. He credits his interests to his father Roger, who is in the N.D. Babe Ruth Baseball Hall of Fame for coaching and in the N.D. Wrestling Hall of Fame for broadcasting.
Scott joined BEK Sports July 1, 2010 as Live Event Director for the Central area of BEK Sports Network. This means that Scott will be one of the local BEK Sports talents in the BEK Communications service area at local high school sporting events. Among other things, Scott has been a free lance videographer since 1993 doing a wide range of free lance work including wedding videography and working with the “Antiques Roadshow” on PBS, the “PBR” for Versus Network and also work with NBA TV. For nine years, he was an editor for KNDX FOX 26 and also became the Production Director for KNDX in 2005.
Scott knows about North Dakota high school sports from attending Harvey High School. He knows about big sports rivalry from attending the University of North Dakota, home of the UND Fighting Sioux. He also knows about communications and broadcasting from attending the Bailie School of Broadcasting in Seattle, WA. He brings this knowledge and experience to the BEK Sports staff and he is anxious to work along side the youth in our area to produce top notch shows for the BEK Sports audiences.
If you ask Scott what brings him to BEK Sports, he will say, “I am very excited about the growth of BEK Sports and I love the opportunity to be involved in live sports action.” Based on past years’ performances, our local high school teams, fans and BEK Sports crews will give Scott what he needs to help produce quality TV sports action.
Scott is from Bismarck. This summer, as time allows, he has been trying to master the game of golf and when winter comes, he will be following the UND Fighting Sioux Hockey team’s progress. In the past, Scott has served on various civic boards. He’s been a volunteer firefighter, president of the Harvey Chamber of Commerce and president of the Fraternal Order of Eagles. His focus now is the upcoming BEK Sports fall season; let’s show him what we’ve got!
Ryan Camden also joins BEK Sports for the Central region as Broadcast Director/Play-by-Play. He will assist in bringing the region the best in high school sports coverage. Whether he’s in front of the camera or behind the scenes, Ryan plans to capture the emotion and passion of the game and relaying that to the viewer. He wants to impress you because he knows how important the various events and games BEK broadcasts are to its communities. The local high school sports arena is now his new playground.
Graduating Cum Laude and fresh from Ball State University, Ryan has won some impressive competitions. He finished 2nd in the Indiana Association of School Broadcasters 2010 College Competition for his radio coverage of the Ball State Football team and he is Emmy-nominated for his work on a live weekly, sports show.
Ryan began work July 19, 2010 to be a part of the BEK Sports team; a team that he sees as growing and expanding in the right directions.
We suspect that you’re not going to miss anything in a broadcast with this guy’s input because he shamelessly announced, “I LOVE sports. I could argue sports for days!” So to get the talk started, let’s just fill you in on a little secret: Ryan is a die hard Indianapolis Colts fan and an avid follower of Peyton Manning.
From Muncie, Indiana to his new home in North Dakota, Ryan will have many opportunities to explore some of his off duty interests as well, like reading (you’ll have all winter to do this Ryan) and scuba diving (Ryan, we’ve got some lakes getting bigger by the day, so check them out and have fun!)
Please join us in welcoming Jeris, Scott and Ryan for the 2010/2011 BEK Sports season!
