The Athletic Department is conservatively estimating that it will broadcast 50 athletic contests during the first year of the agreement. Grace fans will be able to tune into Lancer broadcasts through the Grace Web site at www.grace.edu.
Grace will announce the bulk of the men’s and women’s basketball games, as well as select volleyball, soccer, baseball, and softball contests. Also, plans are in the works to develop a weekly wrap-up show featuring coach/player comments, as well as highlights of Lancer games. A more concrete schedule will be available on the web this summer.
Fans will be able to listen to all games for free via their computer. No high speed internet needed as a 56k modem will work fine. In addition, all broadcasts will be archived.
Fans who sign up for eScore Instant Fan Messaging will be able to get text messages to their cell phone or e-mail with scores and highlights as soon as the game is over.
The Athletic Department will be looking for fans, students, and alumni with an interest in radio broadcasting to donate time to making this endeavor a success. If you are interested in broadcasting a game or games, please e-mail Sports Information Director Jason Knavel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Or, if you would be interested in purchasing advertising time, please contact Knavel. For more information, please view the Grace website at http:/ /www.grace.edu/athletics or the Stretch Internet website at http://www.stretchinternet.com.
