Are you a college student/athlete? Do you have what it takes to host a Podcast? We're always looking for energetic and creative people to join the College Athletes Network.
If that sounds like you, please contact us.
The College Athletes Network is the first Podcasting Network devoted entirely to the Student/Athlete. It’s their platform to talk about Social Issues, Sports, Pop Culture, or anything else any 18-22 year old wants to talk about.
The College Athletes Network (CAN) was founded by
Ron Pivo and Brett Martzke.
Ron has been in Sports Broadcasting for more than thirty years as a Sports Anchor and Sports Reporter. Most recently he worked at KNBC-TV in Los Angeles and prior to that worked as the Sports Director at KGW-TV, the NBC affiliate in Portland, Oregon.
Brett was most recently a Sports Producer at KNBC-TV. Prior to that he was a Supervising Producer at Fox Sports.
On June 30, 2021, the Division 1 Board of Directors approved an interim name, image and likeness (NIL) policy. This new policy allows all NCAA D1, D2 and D3 student-athletes to be compensated for their NIL as of July 1, 2021, regardless of whether their state has a NIL law in place or not.
The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) passed the first legislation of its kind in college sports to allow its student-athletes the opportunity to be compensated for use of their Name, Image and Likeness (NIL). The legislation approved today by NAIA membership follows a year-long discussion on the topic and extends previous legislation relaxing NAIA rules related to amateurism and NIL.
