The TV deal comes with some promo spots hosted by our own Sir Norby Knight.
MYNEW32 to air Green Knight sports
MYNEW32 (WACY-TV), run by Journal Broadcast Group, has agreed to televise Green Knight athletic events to Time Warner Cable subscribers in northeastern Wisconsin. The broadcast agreement calls for 25 sporting events to air during the 2011-2012 academic year.
“St. Norbert College athletics is excited about this tremendous opportunity to partner with MYNEW32 to televise our student-athletes and events,” athletics director Tim Bald says. “To have this many live event telecasts is very unique for a Division III institution.”
Scheduled for broadcast are six men’s hockey games, four women’s hockey games, five football games, five men’s basketball games and five women’s basketball games. Long-time area sports broadcaster Ted Stefaniak will handle play-by-play, with assistance from veteran St. Norbert men’s hockey radio voice Tim Derozier ’95 for hockey broadcasts.
“St. Norbert College is excited to have our student-athletes showcase their talents on MYNEW32,” President Tom Kunkel says. “St. Norbert has a proud athletic tradition of producing outstanding teams, and we want to thank the Journal Broadcast Group for partnering with us to bring some of our Green Knight athletic events to northeastern Wisconsin and beyond.”
Journal Broadcast Group acquired a new state-of-the-art production truck to handle broadcasts. WACY-TV is available on Channel 32 on the UHF band; on Channel 13 for Time Warner Cable subscribers in most northeastern Wisconsin markets; and on Channel 10 in Marinette, Wis.
“The quality of college sports in this area is remarkable,” MYNEW32 general manager Warren Glover says. “This joint venture will be a great addition to MYNEW32’s schedule.”
