Northeastern University junior Alex Faust won the 2011 Jim Nantz Broadcasting Award as the nation’s most outstanding collegiate broadcaster, becoming the first non-senior to win the award in the three-year history of the program. Faust received the award from the Sportscasters Talent Agency of America on May 16 at the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association banquet in Salisbury, North Carolina.
“You know within the first ten seconds Alex is an exceptional sports broadcaster,” says STAA CEO Jon Chelesnik. “His voice, enunciation, energy and pacing are outstanding and he has a good grasp of some of the more advanced sportscasting techniques.”
Faust finished seventh in the voting as a sophomore in 2010.
