Jon Sciambi speaks to CASE students at Wrigley Field
Cubs broadcaster Jon “Boog” Sciambi spoke to a group of passionate high school students on Thursday as part of the CASE (Careers As Sports Executives) Study Program. Founded by former Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein, the CASE Study Program brings together local high school sophomores and juniors interested in careers in sports, allowing them the opportunity to network and learn from those established in the sports industry.
The CASE Study program, run through Cubs Charities, has provided the opportunity for high school students to hear from executives with the Chicago Cubs, including Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer, as well as individuals across the sports landscape.
For Sciambi, the opportunity to speak to the students and answer their questions was an honor as he spoke about how he first got into broadcasting and the numerous people along the way who helped him as he was rising through the college and minor league broadcasting ranks. In turn, Sciambi has made a point to help grow the next generation of sports broadcasters, encouraging the students to get on air by any means possible and not be afraid to make mistakes.
