Connecting with ESPNU

This is an email chain when I reached out to the Public Relations Correspondent for ESPNU in Atlanta, GA. The National event was coming to the area and as a promotions intern with the local radio station I secured opportunity to work with ESPNU public relations, camera crew as well as the staff overseeing the event.

Hi Carla,

Yes! Please do seek me out and I can also introduce you to the ESPNU cameramen and hosts. Do you know if any of the radio stations would be interested in interviewing a competitor as well?

I should be pretty easy to find. I’m the only girl amongst a crew of guys from STIHL and ESPNU. My contact information is below if you need to reach me.

Hi Cama,

My name is Carla Deter, student promotions intern at Allegany Radio Corporation in Cumberland, MD. Allegany Radio is comprised of five radio stations including ESPN Radio 1230 AM. I plan to attend the Timbersports event at Allegany College of MD Saturday as a promotions representative from the station. I am wondering if you will be attending the event and if so I would be honored to have the opportunity to search you out amongst the crowd and meet you. Please know this request is by my own initiative and I have not conferred with my supervisor about my contacting you. I was in the process of doing my research prior to attending the event and became aware that ESPNU would also be present. I would love the opportunity to meet you and if you will not be attending possibly the opportunity to meet another representative of ESPNU.

Thanks in advance for your consideration of this opportunity. I can be contacted by e-mail at or by phone at 301-697-4643.
