Purdue University
Director of Broadcast Services
A Boilermaker since 2004, Cory Palm currently serves as the director of broadcast services for Purdue Athletics. In this role, Palm oversees the livestreaming of more than 120 live events and programs each year while also serving as the primary content provider for broadcast entities around the state of Indiana and throughout the Midwest.
In conjunction with the BTN’s Student U streaming program, Palm helped develop a partnership with the Film and Video Services Department of Purdue University, allowing 35-40 students per semester to work in live event production for class credit. He has also worked with dozens of broadcast students in that time, many of whom have gone on to jobs in the field.
Palm has also had the chance to work on several high-profile projects for Purdue Athletics including writing and producing the documentary Transformative: The Caleb Swanigan Story, and writing, producing, and directing the documentary Perfect Warriors: The 1943 Purdue Football Team, the latter of which has aired on the Big Ten Network more than a dozen times. Palm later evolved the “Perfect Warriors” project into a book, published in 2022. Over the last 15 years, he has also had the chance to serve as the play-by-play voice for soccer, volleyball, wrestling, baseball, softball, tennis, women’s basketball, and swimming and diving.
Prior to coming to Purdue, Palm worked in television news in Lansing, MI, and Stillwater, OK. He has a B.A. in journalism from Michigan State University and an M.A. in public relations and sport management from Purdue. Palm lives in Lafayette, IN with his family.
