QBSN The Quinnipiac Bobcats Sports Network is a student-run organization at Quinnipiac University. Founded in 2010, QBSN offers students the unique opportunity to become active sports journalists. As the flagship station for most of the sports at Quinnipiac University, QBSN broadcasts almost all home sporting events, with all broadcasts streamed live on YouTube through the Quinnipiac Athletics channel and QBSN’s UStream channel. QBSN also offers game previews, recaps, feature articles and live podcasts available through the organization’s official website, theqbsn.com. QBSN also works closely with all other Quinnipiac Student Media organizations to further the coverage of all things at Quinnipiac University. Some of its outside endeavors include two Quinnipiac athletics-specific radio shows on the official campus radio station WQAQ 98.1 FM. Additionally, QBSN works with the campus television station, Q30 Television, to produce its show “Bobcat Breakdown” which airs on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. Without the support of its passionate members, the Quinnipiac Bobcats Sports Network would not be able to flourish in all areas of student media, including pioneering the next phase in its development as an organization. QBSN: The Magazine is brand new to the organization and will be published four times throughout the school year. Its goal is to take an indepth look at all things Quinnipiac athletics. Thank you to all of those who have made this venture a reality. Happy reading.
