Thunderbird Eye

The current CiTR Sports Collective is now a team of seven and has worked together tirelessly to deliver the best of UBC Thunderbirds sports content on Vancouver's 101.9 FM radio waves, Canada West television and social media for the past two years. This submission highlights one of our many student athlete interviews during 2018 as Jacob Aere and Eric Thompson chat with UBC men's soccer star Victory Shumbusho about his sport and difficult journey from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Later, Jacob Aere and Jake McGrail jump into the broadcast booth to deliver play-by-play and colour commentary for UBC women's and men's volleyball as they take on the University of Saskatchewan Huskies at UBC's War Memorial Gym.

Check out the award-winning submission!
