Kelci Sibley Talks Covid-19’s Impact On Sports


Kelci Sibley from LSU’s Riley Center for Media and Public Affairs was on the show to discuss the effects of Covid-19 on the sports industry.  Kelci says that the Riley Center has been holding a conversation about this weekly dating back to April.  Kelci discusses how the pandemic has costs sports networks a lot of money due to a lack of programming and having to re-air classic sports.  Then, she breaks down some of the negative effects that this virus has had on the sports world and how eager fans are to attend sporting events.  She also talks about what fall sports could look like if they do return.  The fifth installment of the Riley Center’s series will take place Thursday, May 28, at 3:30, with a variety of guest speakers.  Registration for this discussion can be found online at Eventbrite: Communications and Covid-19.  For more information, contact Kelci Sibley at
