Brett Bosley enters in his second year at VCU in 2016-17, serving as Assistant Director of Athletic Communications. He will assist with all media relations and statistical operation for the Rams Baseball program, as well as both Men's and Women's Soccer programs. He will also serve as the secondary contact for Men's Basketball, Lacrosse, and Volleyball.
New to Richmond, Bosley is a 2014 graduate of Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, N.H. with a degree in Mass Communication and served on the Athletic Communication student staff during all four years of his undergraduate career. After his graduation in May of 2014, Bosley was hired as Franklin Pierce’s first Graduate Assistant of Athletic Communications where he was the main contact for Volleyball, Men’s Basketball, Softball, Bowling, and both Men’s and Women’s Golf. He was also provided as a secondary contact for Men’s and Women’s Cross Country, Track & Field, and Women’s Basketball.
A major contributor with the student-run Pierce Media Group as an undergraduate, as he served two years as Director of Ravens Sports Network, which provides audio coverage for over 75 home Athletics contests every year.
In addition to his two years overseeing all of RSN's operations, he provided play-by-play coverage for multiple championship-level events as an undergraduate: the 2013 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship East Regional, the 2011 NCAA Men's Soccer Championship (including the national quarterfinal), the 2011 NCAA Baseball Championship East Regional. Perhaps most impressively, Bosley put together the first-ever radio coverage for the Northeast-10 Conference Men's Golf Championship when Franklin Pierce hosted the event in 2013.
For his work with RSN and Franklin Pierce's Marlin Fitzwater Center for Communication, Bosley earned the Marlin Fitzwater Medallion for Service to the Public Discourse prior to graduation. The medallion is the highest honor given by the Fitzwater Center to one graduating senior.
Bosley has collected wide-ranging communication across multiple sports outside of Rindge. He was selected by the Northeast-10 Conference to serve on the Pack Network broadcast team for the 2013 Northeast-10 Ice Hockey Championship (including the semifinals and final) and he has worked as an intern, and later media specialist, for the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. At the team level, he spent time as an intern with the Worcester Sharks during the 2012-13 American Hockey League season, and served as a Tour Guide at Fenway Park for the Boston Red Sox in his time away from Rindge during the summer of 2015.
Originally from Mooers Forks, N.Y., Bosley currently resides in Fredericksburg, Va.
