Athletic Media Relations

The primary purpose of the Bemidji State University Office of Athletic Media Relations is to serve as a liaison between local, state and national media and the administration, coaches and student-athletes in Bemidji State's Department of Intercollegiate Athletics.

As the chief public relations arm of Bemidji State Athletics, the goal of Athletic Media Relations is to facilitate the requests of Bemidji State officials and student-athletes as well as print and electronic media to ensure the best possible coverage of Beaver Athletics.

The Athletic Media Relations office handles all media requests for Bemidji State Athletics administration, coaches and student-athletes. To request access, high-res images or credentials for a Bemidji State Athletics event, contact the appropriate Athletic Media Relations contact listed below.
