Two students from Ball State Sports Link and Digital Sports Production have been selected to attend the first Turner Sports “She’s Got Game” conference for women in sports media.
Senior Kaitlyn Young (Evansville, Ind.) and junior Morgan Landes (Pendleton, Ind.) will travel to the Sept. 15 event at the Turner Studios in Atlanta.
Lenny Daniels, the President of Turner Sports, and Melissa Proctor, the Chief Marketing Officer for the Atlanta Hawks are the keynote speakers.

Turner Sports’ television coverage includes the NBA, Major League Baseball, NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship, ELEAGUE and professional golf, along with the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League beginning in Summer 2018.
The company also manages some of the most popular sports destinations across digital and social platforms including Bleacher Report and its top-rated app, NCAA.com and the critically-acclaimed NCAA March Madness Live suite of products, PGA.com and the Sports Emmy Award-winning PGA Championship LIVE, as well as an accompanying collection of mobile sites and connected device apps. Turner Sports and the NBA jointly manage NBA Digital, a robust collection of offerings including NBA TV, NBA.com, NBA LEAGUE PASS, the NBA App and NBAGLEAGUE.com.
Young and Landes will have the opportunity to meet and attend panels on women in sports media, diversity, talent services, business affairs, social media and digital content production.
As part of the conference, the duo will also work and observe a mock Turner Sports Production, in addition, to viewing a live production of ELEAGUE’s CS:GO Premier 2017 in Turner’s very own ELEAGUE Arena.
