Aspiring Sports Broadcast Journalist
Yaw Bonsu is a 17-year-old sports journalist from Baldwin, NY on Long Island. He is a self-motivated, energetic and service-driven scholar with plans of pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast Journalism. Since September 2018, Yaw has been an active participant in the sportswriting community.
He is currently a staff writer for PerSources Sports. Along with that, he is a staff writer and editor for NFL Fan Blitz and NBA Sixth Man which are both a part of the FanSource Sports Network. Yaw is also a former sportswriting intern for the New York Institute of Technology Bears. His work was published on the official NYIT Bears website. He both interviewed and wrote about student-athletes. Topics included games, experiences, season outlooks and overall play. This was done using his original questions.
In addition to being a sportswriter, Yaw has established a small film package where he takes part in SportsCenter like broadcasts, radio news updates, coach interviews, and sports debates.
Yaw and his close colleague and friend, Tyler Brown, are currently in the midst of developing a sports podcast in which they look to host.
