Meet the Team

Our Team

Our team is comprised of only students of the Walter Cronkite School of Mass Communications and Journalism

Brett Deckert

Executive Producer
Brett Deckert has been a part of Cronkite Sports Live since its inception. Brett was a leading figure as executive producer in getting Cronkite Sports Live its first national award in 2016. You may recognize Brett from his anchoring during the first season of the show, but his home is now in the back of the control room as a producer. 

Coordinating Producer
This is Terra’s second semester as a producer for Cronkite Sports Live. Terra is a junior studying sports journalism and has been an integral part of the show in her time with CSL. With a knack for storytelling, Terra helps coordinate the content of the show so that we can deliver the best possible storylines. She also is perhaps the only fan of Tampa Bay-area sports teams in Arizona, but she is proud of that.

Joey Hardy

Technical Producer & Director
Joey Hardy has been with Cronkite Sports Live since 2013, the first season of the show. He has always been a producer for the show, and was executive producer during the 2014-2015 season. He now plays less of a role in the producer area, but more in the control room and as the technical point of contact. You won’t find Joey on screen, but he is still incredibly friendly and ready to talk about sports, food, or really whatever. 

Blaine McCormick

Associate Producer
Blaine McCormick is a sophomore sports journalism major with an emphasis in broadcasting. His dream is to be a part of a major network sports production like SportsCenter. In his free time, if he has some, he enjoys watching sports, hiking and drinking coffee. Blaine also is a peer mentor on ASU’s Downtown Campus for Barrett the Honors College. If you ever see Blaine, go up and say hello! He loves to talk with people, as long as he’s had his coffee.

ABOUT Cronkite Sports Live is an online sports show dedicated to covering athletics at Arizona State University. It is completely student-run and airs LIVE on Friday afternoons during the fall and spring semesters.

Cronkite Sports Live has been going strong ever since, providing competitive opportunities to aspiring anchors, reporters and producers every step of the way.
