My name is Sherman Fabes and I am a born and raised New Yorker currently a freelance broadcast associate at MLB Network. Along with other duties, I produce and edit montages, essay features, high-end teases, on-air talent segments, highlights, sound packages and miscellaneous production elements, for various MLB Network shows including Emmy award winning MLB Tonight.
I am a 2013 graduate of the University of Missouri. I received a Bachelor of Journalism with a dual emphasis in Broadcast Journalism and Strategic Communication. I graduated from Bard High School Early College in 2009 with an A.A. Degree from Bard College.
Most people are not given the chance to pursue to two emphasis areas, from the best journalism school in the country, and I maximized this opportunity I have. My dream is to combine the skills I have received in both subject areas into one position and I am willing to do anything to achieve that goal.
At the University of Missouri, I was active and involved in many different aspects of the school and the community. To supplement my work in the Missouri School of Journalism, I have worked for the following news organizations and consulting agencies:
- KOMU television (mid-Missouri’s NBC affiliate) – General Assignment Multimedia Reporter, Producer and Field Producer
- KMOX – AM (CBS O &O) – Lead Statehouse Reporter, Fellow, and Multimedia Reporter
- Missouri Digital News – Multimedia Reporter, Teaching Assistant and Assignment Editor
- KBIA – FM – Multimedia Sports Reporter and Blogger
- YAYA Connection - Operations Manager and Teaching Assistant
- Mizzou All-Access – Play-by-Play and Color Sports Broadcaster
I believe the best reporters, producers, journalists, communicators and people overall are well-rounded. But being well-rounded is not about the amount of activities and organizations you have on a resumé, but rather the leadership roles you take in your life in the things you love to do. Through my time at the University of Missouri, I was recognized by the Omicron Delta Kappa secret Tap Day society, as one of the top 25 students on campus on the basis of scholarship, athletics, journalism, leadership, involvement and the arts. I serve on the Alumni Association Student Board, as a Journalism School Ambassador, have been the President of the Jewish Student Organization (in conjunction with the Hillel Foundation) and continue to be an active member, as well as a brother of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity. All in addition to working at the only Synagogue in mid-Missouri, Congregation Beth Shalom, as a Sunday school teacher and youth group advisor.
Outside of Mizzou, I served as the Vice President of Web Content and Design for BVision Sportsmedia, L.P. In the summer of 2012, I worked as an intern on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell. And in the summer of 2011, I worked as a Marketing Associate for Positive Impact Partners and continue to work with the company. I dedicate my free time to the things I love the most: sports, family, friends, Judaism, and the media. Below are the best two pieces of advice I have ever received. I live by these words and hope to pass them on to as many people as possible throughout my life.
“You can’t fulfill your dreams unless you dare to risk it all.” – Michael Levin
“The best investment you can make is in yourself.” – My father, Keith Fabes
