Media Services and Policies
Interviews- All interviews with IU Southeast coaches, student athletes and staff members must be arranged through the office of Sports Information. After games, matches and other athletic events, locker rooms are generally off limits to members of the media. Player and coach interviews, however, may be conducted outside locker room entrances or on the playing surface after a minimal, 10-minute cooling off period for participants.
Practices- Practices are generally closed to members of the media. However, special admittance may be granted with prior knowledge of intentions. Contact the Sports Information Specialist with inquires.
Game Day Coverage and Press Passes- Any media member covering a game, match or other contest hosted by IU Southeast is asked to reserve a press credential at least 24 hours prior to the event. While last minute media are welcome, prior knowledge of your arrival is much appreciated. For most sports, the office of Sports Information will provide statistical information and/or box scores as soon after each home match as possible.
Press Conferences- In the event of a press conference, the primary media covering IU Southeast Athletics will be notified as far in advance as possible. To be added to the primary media list, contact the office of Sports Information.
Game Programs, Game Notes and Media Information - Pre-game information may be obtained from the office of Sports Information when available. If notes, programs, etc., are not available, the office of Sports Information will assist members of the working media in any way possible to ensure accurate reporting.
Technology- At most IU Southeast events, a general phone line, fax line, and photocopier will be made available to members of the working media. IU Southeast also provides free wireless internet connections for all working media members. Please contact Joe Glover for assistance with this feature. When those amenities are unavailable, the sports information office or appropriate other office will be made available before, during and after events.
Radio- Any visiting radio broadcasts must reserve their seating and phone lines at least two weeks in advance of the event to be coverd. While late-comers are welcome, phone lines and seating can not be guaranteed. For basketball, and volleyball, one analog phone line will be reserved for visiting radio, whether previous arrangements have been made or not.
Photographers- Photographers are asked to stay in the respective end zones for basketball. For all other sports, standard shooting spots may be utilized. Similar policies apply for credentials and seating reservations.
