On April 22, the department of Student Affairs welcomes Stephen A. Smith to the Wold Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m., an event free for all students, faculty and staff.
Smith is best known for his work as an NBA analyst on SportsCenter and serves as a co-host for First Take on ESPN. In addition to his work on the screen, he hosts his own radio show, The Stephen A. Smith Show on ESPN Radio.
“As a sports management major, this is an incredible opportunity,” said Lourdes Rubero, senior. “I am really looking forward to hearing from one of the biggest names in the sports industry to come to campus.”
Smith, an acclaimed sports analyst, commentator and TV personality has made headlines recently on social media with his reaction to Magic Johnson’s resignation from the Los Angeles Lakers and Tiger Woods winning his fifth Masters early this month.
“Stephen A. speaking to our students allows them to hear insight and perspective directly from a recognized and accomplished professional in his field,” said Anthony Altieri, vice president of Student Affairs.
Altieri, a sports fanatic himself, is excited for both the Lynn family and the outside community to hear from one of the most prominent names in the industry.
“I was excited about the student’s reaction to learning that Stephen A. was coming to campus,” Altieri added. “It should be a great event and I am looking forward to hearing his message.”
Tickets are available at the Wold box office; members of the Lynn community can receive one free ticket by showing their Lynn ID. Seats for the general public are priced at $25, while Lynn alumni receive a discounted rate of $20. For more information, call the box office at 561-237-9000.
