I'm Ryan Gerbosi, I was born and raised on Long Island, NY. I have been a sports fan my entire life and joined Bleacher Report during the 2008 Summer Olympics. I am currently a junior at the University of Oklahoma majoring in journalism with a minor in History. I participated in the B/R Summer Writing internship in 2012 and was promoted to Featured Columnist on Oklahoma Sooners Football.
I started writing for Bleacher Report when I was first considering a career in sports media. I had always intended on going toward broadcasting, but I gave writing a shot with bleacher report and found out I wasn't too bad at it.
My family relocated to the D/FW area after I graduated high school so I decided to enroll at the University of Oklahoma (only a 3-hour drive), where I immediately began working at The Oklahoma Daily, the independent student newspaper on-campus. I started as a news intern in my first semester. While on the news desk, I worked on a variety of topics. Due to my interest in sports, I was often given the "it's kinda sports, but not really, so the news desk can do it" stories. This worked out well as I got to do stories on OU's Ultimate team, a student who is a jiu-jitzu world champion, intramural sports and the first ever Quidditch tournament at OU, of which I did a first-person POV story about my experience playing Quidditch. My favorite moment of the semester was when Leigh Anne Tuhoy of "The Blindside" fame came to speak and I got a private interview with her and had my story run above the fold in the next day's paper.
In the spring, I was moved to the sports desk and was made Junior Beat Reporter in Charge of Baseball. I began covering the Top-25-ranked Oklahoma Sooners baseball team. I contributed multiple stories each week, including game recaps, series previews and columns. As part of my duties, I also covered the Bedlam Series games in Oklahoma City in April 2011 at RedHawks field in Bricktown.
Recently, I have been working on developing my multimedia skills as well as improving my writing in classes at Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication at OU. Outside of journalism, I am the Vice President of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity.

Hey man check out my article on ESPN's coverage of the Confederation's Cup Final
The Mets and Phillies are both great team, but will the NL east race be close again?
Thanks for the kind words...
I would definitely recommend Syracuse as one of the best (if not THE best) school for broadcast journalism. I know a lot of schools like Northwestern and Missouri and Kansas have reputations for having great broadcasting programs. Knowing the courses I took in college and the way they prepared me for life in the business world, Syracuse will definitely get you ready for the broadcast world.
My last three years of high school were in Georgia, so I know some people who have gone through UGA's broadcasting program and they've said it's good. I have no knowledge of Florida's or Michigan's programs.
Hope that helps.
very good article on the underage chinese gymnasists hopefully somthing will be done to stop this from happening again.
