The Quinnipiac Bobcats Sports Network (QBSN) is a student-run organization at Quinnipiac University. Originally founded by Corey Hersch and Alex Birsh in 2010, QBSN offers students the unique opportunity to become active sports journalists. As the flagship station for most of the sports at Quinnipiac University, QBSN broadcasts every home sporting event with all broadcasts streamed live on YouTube through the Quinnipiac Athletics channel. QBSN also offers game previews, recaps, feature articles and live podcasts available through this website as well as live Twitter updates. Hockey Night in Hamden, an exclusive Quinnipiac ice hockey podcast, broadcasted weekly, has become a popular show for ECAC Hockey enthusiasts to tune into to hear QBSN’s experts weigh in on the week that was Quinnipiac ice hockey.
QBSN also works closely with all other Quinnipiac Student Media organizations to further the coverage of all things Quinnipiac University. Some of its outside endeavors include two Quinnipiac athetics-specific radio shows on the official campus radio station WQAQ 98.1 FM. Additionally, QBSN works with the campus television station, Q30 Television, to produce its show “Bobcat Breakdown.”
Without the support of its passionate members, the Quinnipiac Bobcats Sports Netowrk would not be able to flourish in all areas of student media, including pioneering the next phase in its development as an organization with its new publication, QBSN: The Magazine. It is brand new to the organization and will be published four times throughout the school year. Its goal is to take an in-depth look at all things Quinnipiac athletics.
After only two years of existence, QBSN gained noticeable recognition, earning the QU New Student Organization of the Year award in the 2010-11 scholastic year and the 2011-12 Quinnipiac Athletics Behind the Scenes award.
