WINTER PARK, Fla. -- Veteran sportscaster Dan Patrick and Full Sail University are teaming up.

Patrick was heavily involved with the development of this program, Full Sail officials said in a livestream announcement Thursday afternoon via YouTube. 

“I’m regularly being asked how to get into the industry, and I was meeting college graduates who weren’t getting practical experience as part of their degrees," Patrick explained.

"This program is designed to develop well-rounded grads who are just as strong on camera as they are behind the scenes.” 

Patrick said Full Sail’s agile approach to curriculum was a key factor in forging the partnership.

“How we consume sports is changing almost daily," Patrick said, adding, "What’s important is what’s important now. Is it going to be important in six weeks, six months from now? We have to be able to adapt. That’s the beauty about Full Sail. We adapt to what the industry is doing and that helps the student."
