Arlington High graduate Jared Bessette-Kirton, now an Ithaca College senior, has been selected by NBC Sports to assist with its coverage of the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, next month.
Bessette-Kirton, a television-radio major in Ithaca’s Roy H. Park School of Communications, was one of 34 students chosen from the school as an Olympic intern.
Bessette-Kirton will be working in the International Broadcast Center during the Games. The center, known as the “Highlights Factory,” is where the network packages and distributes its multi-media content.
NBC Sports’ only other Olympic interns are from Syracuse and Bradley universities.
