Toledo, Ohio August 13, 2014, – The Three Rivers Athletic Conference (TRAC) has signed a two-year partnership agreement with BCSN granting the sports channel exclusive broadcasting rights for a variety of games (including football, basketball, volleyball, wrestling, hockey, baseball and softball etc.) on Buckeye CableSystem in northern Ohio and Southeastern Michigan.
TRAC commissioner Michael Richards signed the agreement, with the support of the conference’s principals and athletic directors.
“The Three Rivers Athletic Conference is excited about securing the partnership with BCSN,” stated TRAC commissioner Mike Richards. “We look forward to the additional exposure the Three Rivers Athletic Conference will receive through this agreement and we feel it will enhance the awareness of our member schools not only through it’s athletic competiveness but also by sharing their academic and fine art opportunities to the viewers.”
“Over the past 10 years we have been the area leader in covering all sports, both boys and girls, at all the local high schools,” said Veronica Pinciotti, general manager of the 24-hour channel that focuses on local sports at all levels from youth and club contests through high school and professional sporting events. “This new agreement gives us local exclusivity.”
“With the addition last year of BCSN 2, a second channel, the door was opened for more live prime-time programming which will help fill community requests,” Ms. Pinciotti added. BCSN historically has covered about 900 games annually, “but this year, we will break the record by producing closer to 1,200 events,” she said.
“We look forward to working with the TRAC to bring their excitement and competitive program to the entire community on both BCSN Channels,” Ms. Pinciotti said.
Buckeye’s 130,000 customers can view BCSN on Ch 8 and HD 608 and BCSN 2 on Ch 109 and HD 609. BCSN and BCSN 2 are seen exclusively on Buckeye CableSystem.
