Stefan Tribble

Stefan Tribble received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication with a concentration in Broadcasting in 2013 from Mississippi State University.

Tribble grew up in Hamilton, Miss., but now resides in Starkville, Miss., where he works as the solution specialist and project manager for global sports and live events at Ross Video.

Tribble shares his responsibilities as a project manager while working remotely.

“When remote, I work from my home office and project manage large projects/installs of Ross Video gear for collegiate and professional teams. When I am on the road, it depends on the event, season or stadium. I work the Super Bowl, NFL Draft, US Tennis Open and many other large scale sporting events. I also work with many professional NFL, MLB, NHL teams and SEC/ACC schools.”

Tribble previously worked as the associate director of broadcast operations for Mississippi State Athletics. He says previous experience at MSU better prepared him for his future career.

“I worked in local TV, church, freelance and as a student worker at the MSU TV Center and Athletic department during school. I tried to find every opportunity to intern or work to supplement my education during college.”
