Zion Brown wins play-by-play scholarship
Zion Brown is the first-ever freshman recipient of a scholarship from the Black Play-by-Play Broadcaster Grant and Scholarship Fund.
He is one of four recipients of this year’s play-by-play award. Brown has called football, soccer and basketball for WIUX Pure Student Radio and has been involved in broadcast since before college.
“This scholarship means a lot to me because I have worked so hard to improve on my craft for four years now,” Brown said. “It feels good to be acknowledged for the work and diligence that I have put into doing play-by-play.”
