SportsZone debuted in 2002 as a 30-minute TV program featuring the university's Division I and Division III athletic programs.
This original sports magazine broadcast was a collaboration between ESPN, Time Warner Cable, and RIT, and aired throughout New York State for fourteen seasons. Today RIT SportsZone has grown exponentially, expanding from the original single sports program to a multi-media production ensemble, which now includes SportsZone Pregame, SportsZone LIVE, SportsZone In-House, and SportsZone All Access. The four programs employees a staff of over 70 students.
