Using multiple screen devices simultaneously while snacking may influence food choices, according to a new Michigan State University study.

Specifically, when people engage in media multitasking that makes them feel good, they're more prone to eat healthy, says Anastasia Kononova, assistant professor in the Department of Advertising and Public Relations, who led the study.

MSU alumnus Scott Moore is the voice of Michigan State University hockey and baseball for the Spartan Sports Network. This past hockey season, Moore called his 1,000th game for SSN.

“It’s been a dream come true, and it’s been a joy for me to be able to do this,” says Moore. “I tell people that if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. And I have yet to work in the last 26 years.”
