Some of the positions that are involved with the production of these events include:
- Play-By-Pay Announcer

Any student can work for the campus radio station Indy Blue Radio, providing play-by-play coverage of several Butler sports. Some of the games are simulcast on the ButlerSports.com website.

Indy Blue Radio also gives students the opportunity to produce high-quality talk shows commentating on local, national and Butler sports including weekly interviews with athletes and sports professionals.
