CHARLESTON, W.Va.Learn to create sports-related digital content from your own website at the latest Creators Program workshop at West Virginia State University's Economic Development Center (EDC) beginning Friday, April 12, from 7 to 9:30 p.m.
 
The two-part seminar will be conducted by Mark Martin, sports director at WCHS-TV and WVAH-TV.
 
"Thanks to the Internet, the possibilities for being a sportscaster are endless," said Martin. "A television or radio station can now be created through personal websites."
 
Participants will learn how to develop a website and produce sports programming, as well as information about sportscasting as a career.
 
Martin has been sports director at WCHS-TV and WVAH-TV in the Charleston/Huntington market since 2000 and has served as color commentator and sideline reporter for games airing on ESPN Regional and Fox Sports. He is the recipient of a regional Emmy and The Associated Press Lifetime Achievement Award and has been named West Virginia Sportscaster of the Year twice.
 
The Creators Program is a spinoff of WVSU's DigiSo initiative, a digital and social media incubator based out of the EDC. Recent workshops have focused on filmmaking, production, writing, music and other topics taught by local professionals.
