BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- WKU student-athletes in football, men's basketball and women's basketball spent Friday afternoon working on interviews and public speaking with Sue Castorino and Randy Minkoff of The Speaking Specialists.

The Speaking Specialists, based out of Chicago, have 20 years of experience in the field and have worked with over 100 colleges and universities and numerous professional basketball, baseball and football teams.

In the highly-interactive sessions, WKU student-athletes were given tips on working with the media, how to handle social media and how to present themselves and the university in daily interactions. Examples were given of both good and bad practices, and student-athletes were educated on what to expect with the move to Conference USA.
