Notre Dame Announces Launch of Irish Online Network

rp (1)Notre Dame High School has announced the launch of a new online broadcasting network. In partnership with the NFHS Network, ION Broadcasting – the Irish Online Network – will feature live and archived audio and video broadcasts of Irish sporting events. The network will also include a sports talk show focusing on the Irish coaches and athletes, as well as coverage of non-sporting events.

ION will be used as a teaching tool for students interested in running cameras for events and learning to be broadcasters. Those students will be learning from experience. Veteran award-winning broadcaster Reuben Perdue will be the program manager. Perdue (pictured) brings over 20 years of broadcast experience with him. He’s won numerous awards from broadcasters’ associations in Ohio and West Virginia.
