Delaware Valley High School journalism students took a field trip to ESPN's headquarters in Bristol, Conn. on March 1. They met with Delaware Valley alumnus Ryan Balton, a camera, jib and Steadicam operator who was the editor of The Del.Aware from 2005 to 2007.
The students toured the ESPN newsroom, studios and control rooms. They sat in on a live studio update and talked with on-air talent during the Syracuse vs. Virginia college basketball game.
