Friday, August 13, 2010 3:31 pm
DTC TV is proud to announce their plans to televise selected area high school football games this season on myDTC3.
“We are proud to announce that DTC Sports will be back in action this year to televise select high school football games,” said Nick Nokes, Marketing Administrator for DTC Communications.
“Last year was our first year of televised high school football coverage and it was extremely popular with the schools, communities, and our TV customers. We understand the importance of high school athletics in our local communities, and we are very proud to help bring exposure of these outstanding student-athletes to our friends, neighbors, and customers.”
The football games will be broadcast on a tape-delayed basis exclusively on myDTC3, the local television channel available to DTC TV customers. myDTC3 televises many events of local interest, such as Chamber of Commerce Programs, spelling bees, pageants, parades, horse shows, and county fairs. Additional local programming, in addition to high school football, is scheduled for the coming months.
DTC Sports will videotape a selected football game each Friday night during the season. Playback of these games will take place on myDTC3 the following Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 7PM. The complete playback schedule can be viewed on www.DTCcom.net/myDTC3.
The local football telecasts will feature an on-site pre-game show, complete game action, a halftime show and a post-game show. Players, coaches and fans will also be featured in interviews during the selected games.
Former WJLE sports director, Tom Duggin, will be back this year to handle the play-by-play duties for the telecast, while former WJLE play-by-play announcer and color analyst, Darvin Gill, also returns to provide game analysis.
“Sports are such a huge part of these communities, and it’s a tremendous pleasure to be part of this endeavor,” Duggin said.
DTC’s regular season football broadcast schedule will kick off on Friday night, August 20th, with the DeKalb County Tigers hosting the Warren County Pioneers. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m., with pre-game festivities slated to start at the school around 5:00 p.m. Fans are encouraged to come out for tailgating festivities and to take part in the recorded telecast of the pre-game show. The first playback of this game will be Tuesday evening, August 24th.
