Bradley University will host its second annual Charley Steiner Symposium on Nov. 15, which will see some of the biggest names in sports from across the nation in attendance.

"Our partnership with Charley Steiner has provided our students with access to experts in the sports communication field who can lend their insight into the industry while giving our students an experience they wouldn't get anywhere else," Gary Roberts, president of Bradley, said.

Among those in attendance are Charley Steiner, for whom the event is named for, an alumnus of Bradley who went on to become a Hall of Fame play-by-play announcer for the Los Angeles Dodgers and the winner of four Emmy Awards; John Rooney, play-by-play announcer for the St. Louis. Cardinals; Len Kasper, play-by-play man for the Chicago Cubs; John Walsh of ESPN; and Diane Shah, a female pioneer in sportswriting.

"We are able to offer our students opportunities to have the very best curriculum in sports broadcasting, promotions, new media, journalism and play-by-play announcing," Dr. Paul Gullifor, chairman of the department, said. "We are opening the door to so many more opportunities for our students."
