Knockout Digital Media Taps Newtek for ESPNRadio.com All-Star Productions

Knockout Digital Media has
chosen the Newtek TriCaster portable live production system to produce and web
stream the ESPN Radio All-Star Game radio shows in New York City to
ESPNRadio.com. The July 14 and 15 web streams will give the world’s
sports fans live access to Mike & Mike in the Morning from Grand Central Station from 6-10am and to Tirico and Van Pelt from Mickey Mantle’s restaurant from 1-4pm.
“TriCaster
is allowing us to give live access to the events surrounding the last
All Star Game to ever be played at Yankee Stadium, with a savings in
cost, space and time,” said Gil Chavez, President of Knockout Digital
Media. “The online presence of this day in baseball brings the ESPN
Radio fans another opportunity to be part of the excitement.”
“Space is a premium when you are broadcasting live from venues like
Grand Central Station or Mickey Mantle’s restaurant,” said Philip
nelson, NewTek SVP of Strategic Development. “The portability of
TriCaster is allowing Knockout Digital Media to web stream from both
venues without expanding their radio broadcasting footprint.”
