About Anchor Sports Network

 The University of Rhode Island’s Sports Media Club, otherwise known as Anchor Sports Network was created to provide learning opportunities to students who want to work in the field of sports media. Unlike any other opportunity at URI, ASN gives students the ability to create any type of content they want, covering whatever they want. Our members have created podcasts, blog posts, videos and much more coming in the future!
