Throughout his entire life, Bryce developed a passion for sports journalsim. After graduating from Shenendehowa High School in Clifton Park, New York, he went on to attend Penn State University to pursue a degree in Broadcasting Journalism.

Bryce is a senior at the Pennsylvania State University from Reading, Pennsylvania who now resides in Albany, New York.  He is in the pursuit of a major in Broadcasting Journalism with a minor in History. Bryce is interested in pursuing a career in sports journalism such as a talk-show host, analyst, or a play-by-play broadcaster.
Bryce is a member of Centre County Report, which is fully broadcasted by students and is the capstone broadcast journalism course in the College of Communications at Penn State. The award-winning weekly program serves a dual purpose—as a source of news and information for Centre County residents and as a real-time laboratory for Penn State students.

Bryce has interned at ESPN Radio 104.5 The Team in Albany, New York. He assisted in the live production of the local daily talk show by working in the control room and gathering sound bites from various local sports teams such as the New York Yankees and New York Jets. He has on-air experience from the internship as well.

In addition, Bryce has also interned at FOX 23 News in Albany, New York in the Sports Department. Along with the local on-air anchor, he was tasked with gathering footage of local sports and editing the footage in preparation for the evening news.

Sports has always been a passion for Bryce and he enjoys the world of sports in every capacity. His ultimate goal is to become an on-air sports talk show anchor or a sports analyst, but would love to work in sports in any way.
