The Link Between TV and Romance Puts Albion Professor's Research on National Stage
Communication Studies professor Jeremy Osborn has been watching a lot of couples watch television – and what he sees could save relationships. Osborn's research appears nationally in the September 2012 issue of Mass Communication and Society and is sparking interest in mass-market media including Cosmopolitan and The Huffington Post.
The perfect pitch for Ankenbrandt’s skill set – combining his excellent interpersonal skills and passion for baseball – was delivered like a hanging curveball in April when Dugout Media tabbed the Grandville native for a marketing position on one of its Baseball Youth Fanfest Mobile Tours. Ankenbrandt’s tour is set up through mid-August at the Cooperstown All-Star Village in upstate New York, situated a sharp line drive from the National Baseball Hall of Fame. A catcher for the Britons, Ankenbrandt talks to players ages 7-13 who visit Cooperstown for tournaments about the Akadema products he uses on the diamond.
