Huskies Add 4 Broadcasting Interns for Summer 2017
The Duluth Huskies and the Northwoods League have always been committed to professional development on and off the field. This season the Huskies have decided to take that one step further adding a broadcasting team to the intern staff. They will be doing play-by-play for online broadcasting, in-game announcements, be the voice of the Huskies on the road and at home. Four interns have been added to the team including Henrique DaMour of Northwestern University, Matthew Lively of Arizona State University, Alexander Moore of Ohio University, and Erik Rosvold of University of Minnesota Duluth.
Henrique DaMour has grown up all over the place. He was born in Brazil, moved to Singapore, China, Michigan, and finally California for high school before landing in Evanston where he currently studies journalism with a computer science minor at Northwestern University. Besides studying, he co-produces a weekly Northwestern sports talk show on WNUR 89.3 FM Evanston-Chicago, does play-by-play and color commentary for various NU sports, sings as a bass in an acappella group, serves as vice president of his fraternity, and is actively involved in campus ministry. When he's not tending to his responsibilities, he likes going into Chicago with friends, playing pickup basketball (quite poorly), and religiously watching Detroit sports. If there are three things he is truly passionate about, though, they're the Detroit Tigers, good music, and Coca-Cola. Henrique is extremely excited for this summer and to be a part of the Huskies family!
Matthew Lively is a student at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. He grew up in Palm City, Florida for 18 years before moving to Phoenix. His love for baseball started at an early age, playing tee ball at 5-years-old all the way throughout high school. Prior to working for the Huskies, Matthew has been worked with KASC Blaze Radio, the Walter Cronkite Sports Network, Pac-12 Network, Arizona Sports 98.7, FanSided, and Pro Player Insiders. Matthew has covered Arizona State University baseball and softball as a full-time beat writer. Previously, he was the play-by-play announcer for the ASU ACHA D1 and D2 hockey teams. He has experience as a play-by-play announcer in baseball, softball, hockey, and basketball. In addition to his ASU coverage, Matthew has published over 40 FanSided articles, accumulating over 100,000 views and has been featured on Fox Sports. In February, Matthew will cover Super Bowl 51 week for Pro Player Insiders, providing coverage on the NFL Honors and fan events throughout the week. In his spare time, he loves to play golf and stay active. He has volunteered extensively with the American Red Cross, Best Buddies AZ, and the Ability Experience. Matthew is excited to make Duluth his home for the summer and join the Huskies for a successful season.
Alexander Moore is a junior studying broadcast journalism at Ohio University. He lives in Painesville, Ohio and his passion since he was a kid has been sports, particularly baseball. He started playing baseball as soon as he could pick up a baseball bat. Some of his earliest memories are of his dad teaching him how to swing a bat. He played through high school where he led his team in hitting. He started calling play-by-play for baseball when he was a sophomore in college. The Huskies will be the third collegiate oriented baseball team for which he has called play-by-play.

At Ohio University he is involved with WOUB, the Ohio University student media.
