More televised games

Recommended Posts

University announced they are adding some home games to the television schedule. Good news as hopefully it will catch the attention of the casual fan.



     Albany, N.Y. – Time Warner Cable will televise four University at Albany men’s basketball games during the 2003-04 season. The broadcast schedule includes the home opener on Friday, Dec. 5 against Army, plus America East Conference contests with Vermont (Jan. 28), New Hampshire (Feb. 7) and Stony Brook (Feb. 18). Gendron’s Truck Center will serve as the title sponsor.

     Time Warner Cable, which serves more than 320,000 customers in the Capital Region, will air UAlbany basketball games on Channel 2 in Albany, Troy and Clifton Park, Channel 11 in Pittsfield, Mass., and Channel 14 in all other markets, including Schenectady, Bethlehem, Saratoga Springs, Glens Falls, Amsterdam, Gloversville and Rensselaer.

     UAlbany’s radio broadcast team of Rodger Wyland and Doug Mortman, from Fox Sports Radio AM 980, will provide the play-by-play coverage. Greg Bobbit will produce the broadcast for Time Warner Cable.

     Time Warner Cable’s Albany Division operates one of the most sophisticated cable systems in the nation and is home to New York’s first two-way digital network. The system provides high-speed online access for residential customers, schools and businesses; digital cable with 240 cable channels, including on-demand services, interactive programming guides and popular, award-winning, locally-produced programming.

a few notes ... i hope that the athletic dept. avoids the fault that we've discussed with football coverage ... if we are trying to market the program to the sports fans of the capital district, it should appear as though there are fans at the game ... shoot the footage with a crowd in the background ... as i have stated before, the football highlights on area stations create the impression that there are only a dozen or so fans at home games (including the homecoming game where there were 5k+) because they shoot from the UA side of the field ... for the televised basketball games the dept. should increase marketing efforts (Big Purple Growl type) to bring out students, and the ticket office should make all walk-up ticket sales to the one tv visible side of the court ... it is all about appearance ... hopefully the UA teams will play well on those evenings ... i may need to trade in my aging, though strong, honda for a new truck sold at Gendrons
