Kindred Communications boss Mike Kirtner announced on his Facebook page Monday that Marshall University basketball star Taevion Kinsey will be interning with the local media outlet this semester.
“As one of the best basketball players in Thundering Herd history, (Taevion) is a broadcasting major,” said Kirtner of Kinsey. “In addition to hoops, his future will include television. He has the it factor on and off of the court.”
Kindred Communications runs several local radio stations including 93.7 FM The Dawg, 92.7/98.5 FM The Planet, 97.9 FM The River, and 101.5 FM Big Buck Country, among others. Kinsey will be interning with Kindred’s management arm.
“One of my greatest pleasures is being able to work with college athletes as they prepare for a life after college,” said Kirtner. ”The experience works two ways…I know being with these young men has impacted my life too.”
