For broadcasting, coming to the CLPB was a challenge that Gavin Titherington knew he wanted to take on. Gavin hails from Palm Beach
Atlantic as a junior, broadcasting two sports for Sailfish athletics, soccer and lacrosse for both the men’s and women’s teams. “I’ve always had the knack for describing things well,” said Titherington. “There has always been a passion for sports, so I decided to pursue that.” As a sports broadcasting major, coming to the CLPB made perfect sense for Titherington. Gavin not only broadcasts the sports, but also produces and directs, so he’s used to going on the fly and multitasking for these events. He also dabbles into journalism, writing for the Palm Beach Atlantic school paper, The Beacon. Gavin’s main focus, however, is to broadcast thesegames, and he’s very experienced in doing so already. “It’s all about flow for me when I broadcast, trying to apply what I know in an orderly fashion as a color guy.” Color commentators are very important to any broadcast team. Usually coming in the form of former players or coaches, for example, former Dallas Cowboys Quarterbacks Troy Aikman or Tony Romo, color commentators provide in-depth expertise and analysis to the play-by-play roll. “It’s about applying what I know about the sport of baseball,” Gavin told me. “It comes from learning from everyone around me and myself. Experience is key in this field and it’s important for me to pick up some experience moving forwards, and that’s the goal for this.” .
