<strong>Atlanta———Global Basketball Sports Media Intern lands NBA job</strong>
Samantha Dewig is now part of the Digital Media team for the Atlanta Hawks as was hired in January 2016. She is a former Indiana University graduate that participated in the Global Basketball Summer League (GBSL) sports media internship program in 2013. Every year the GBSL uses a team of sports media interns and freelancers to provide color analyst, play by play and post game reporting of the GBSL games. Several former GBSL sports reporters have used the event platform and experience to secure significant jobs in the industry.
As a result of Samantha’s 2013 GBSL event, Tunde Adekola (former GBSL and NBA D League coach) helped her land a job offer with the Delaware 87ers (NBA D league) but eventually she committed to media position with the Georgia Tech Sports Communication Department.
Samantha was freelance contributor for Global Basketball at the Hawks home games the past (2) seasons. She used the sports reporting opportunity to network with the appropriate decision makers within the Atlanta Hawks organization and secured her current position.
Global Basketball is currently seeking sports media & marketing interns for the 2016 GBSL summer event
