RADIO.COM is excited to announce CheckpointXP’s newest brand — CheckpointXP On Campus.

CheckpointXP On Campus will be a podcast series and site that captures all of the excitement and energy that esports and competitive video gaming are bringing to colleges and universities across the country.

CheckpointXP teamed up with UNLV’s Hank Greenspun School of Journalism and Media Studies. The show's collegiate content hub will be located on the UNLV campus, and they are inviting approximately 70 schools across the country and Canada to contribute news about their schools.

The site is being created by students, for students. CheckpointXP On Campus will leverage the brand's authoritative voice on esports while extending into the college arena.

CheckpointXP On Campus will exist as a multi-platform brand, and will launch on Sept. 12. The first one-hour video and podcast show will air on Twitch, CheckpointXP.com, RADIO.COM and YouTube at 10 p.m. EST / 7 p.m. PST. Additional content will live on the CheckpointXP.com website under the CheckpointXP On Campus section.

“As Host of the show, I never dreamed I would be heading back to school at this stage in my career," shared host Norris Howard. "But working with the journalism students at UNLV’s JMS Department and several other schools so far has allowed me to see the growing impact that esports and video gaming is having today on our campuses."

The show will also be anchored by two UNLV-based hosts. The podcast and live series will cover news, team rankings, scholarships and job opportunities.
