Bloomsburg University senior Leah Cover has been selected to work as part of the public relations staff at Super Bowl XLVIII at the Meadowlands in New Jersey. She will serve as a “Runner” at the game working both in the press box and on the field.
Cover, from Hummelstown and a graduate of Lower Dauphin High School, secured the coveted position after job shadowing for Nicole Fountain, senior manager public relations and communications at MetLife Stadium back in 2012. Fountain, a Bloomsburg University graduate, then directed Cover to Peter John-Baptiste, vice president of communications at New York Giants, who chose Cover for one of the jobs during the biggest sporting event to hit the Metro New York area.
“This is a great opportunity, and I am looking forward to being part of this event,” said Cover, a public relations major with a minor in marketing who works in BU’s Sports Information Office.
