COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The Campus Insiders Digital Network announced this weekend that Merrill College junior journalism major Cameron Rogers will be their guest reporter at the NCAA football championship game in Arizona Monday.
Rogers mounted an amazing Twitter campaign to help win the Guest Reporter position – he was even able to get Merrill alumna and TV Host Giuliana Rancic and TV personality Ryan Seacrest to support him:
Campus Insiders said at the time that their Guest Reporter competition took months to complete – and was a difficult decision given all the great entrants. The digital sports network used a fun – and elaborate scheme with hostess Shae Peppler – to surprise Rogers with the good news.
