Reminder - CENTRO's Trainees to Work Winter X-Games for ESPN

TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwire - December 18, 2008) - CENTRO TV and Radio is a premier broadcasting school that continues its partnership with ESPN, the largest sports Network in the world, for their 2009 Winter X-Games in Aspen, Colorado.

The Extreme Sports Extravaganza will be the working grounds for a group of top students in TV training from the CENTRO vocational facility in Torrance, Ca.

The lucky group of trainees will be able to work alongside ESPN's technical personnel covering the most spectacular feats of world renowned athletes plowing through snow and ice in heart stopping stunts.

Through this unique opportunity, CENTRO's trainees will learn the importance of teamwork in such a large live coverage event. This work experience will undoubtedly be a positive element when these students become graduates seeking a job at ESPN or other networks.

In the past CENTRO's trainees have worked in the Summer 2008 X-Games for ESPN and from that experience many have been hired. They worked as camera operators, stage managers, technical directors, graphics operators, editors and in other positions.
