Bradley grad a Rugby sportscaster
There is a new voice in town.
Rugby Broadcasting hired young Dylan Corbet last fall as its sportscaster voice for all sports teams. He came to Rugby fresh from Bradley University in Peoria, Ill.
Corbet has a degree in Sports Communication and double minored in Management & Leadership and Marketing from Bradley University, a top ranked private school. He is currently enrolled in a Masters Program in Sports Management online at the University of Florida.
Corbet came to Bradley U from Missouri, when his family moved his freshman year of high school to St Louis from Connecticut. When asked if that was a tough time for him moving during his freshman year, he said “Absolutely not. It was fantastic. It was the best thing that ever happened to me. St Louis had everything to offer someone who loved sports, who wanted to know everything about every team and all its players.”
“It was in St Louis where I got interested in sports broadcasting specifically baseball with the Cardinals, and again in Illinois with the Chicago Cubs. I enjoyed everything about going to school at Bradley,” Corbet said.
Corbet has a youthful enthusiasm about him, which makes his love of sports infectious. He has covered them all; wrestling, track, basketball, baseball, and football. He’s looking forward to the upcoming baseball season this spring. But meanwhile he is loving traveling with the teams, his co-workers Bruce Allen and Carl Hauser and working with the rest of the crew at Rugby Broadcasting reporting on Panthers sports. “The coaches and teams are terrific, and everyone is so helpful.”
“When this opportunity came up in Rugby, I was so excited to get involved on a local level. North Dakota parents here are so supportive of their kids. The whole community is involved and comes out to watch the games. I really love that about Rugby, and the state.”
When asked what he wanted to do with his career, he said he had high expectations of taking his career to the next level and beyond. “I have always want to be involved in sports broadcasting. I used to practice as a kid and I am going to do my very best to succeed as high as I can.” Dylan said.
While the majority of us may not have the raw athletic prowess necessary to become a professional athlete, it doesn’t mean we can’t become the talent inside the broadcast booth reporting on the games and athletes. It’s in Corbet’s blood. Hear him at the Rugby Broadcasting for Sports Talk, and the Coaches Corner which is 10 a.m. on Saturday mornings on AM 1450 KZZJ.
