For the first time ever, the Mass Communications department was hired to webcast the NCAA Great Northwest Athletic Conference track and field meet. With our new production truck, students were able to stream the event live to viewers on several different continents. The setup included four cameras stationed all around the Idaho Center Stadium with a 12-man crew. Arnie Ytreeide, the department chair stated, "It was tremendous pressure for our students to capture in a professional manner the essence of numerous events happening simultaneously. Our Mass Comm students rose to the occasion and demonstrated they had really learned the skills taught in class."
