W&L Alumna and March Madness

If you happen to be among those who watch the NCAA Divison I Basketball Tournament, a.k.a March Madness, on your computer, you are likely to catch Washington and Lee alumna Kaylee Hartung, of the Class of 2007, doing the studio show at halftime of games over the next three weeks.

Kaylee, an associate producer for the Sunday public affairs show Face the Nation and a featured correspondent on the daily web show Washington Unplugged, has been prepping for the job by studying potential brackets, interviewing member of the CBS team and learning how to use the computerized “magic wall.”

Kaylee will be in the New York studios of CBS. “March Madness on Demand” (MMOD) streams every game on NCAA.com, CBSSports.com and SI.com for computers, iPads or iPhones. Kaylee and her cohorts will do an original halftime show for every game, and that’s a lot of shows.

In addition, Kayle will be tweeting ā€” @KayleeHartung ā€” about the tournament. On Selection Sunday yesterday, she did interviews with Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith, Greg Gumble and Gus Johnson among others. The first round begins on Tuesday night, and Kaylee will be on the job through the championship game in Houston on April 4. Go ahead and watch. We promise not to tell your boss.
