Castellini press conference update

New Reds owner Bob Castellini wants to speak directly to the fans today -- and fans will have ample opportunities t hear him. Two more stations have announced they’re carrying Castellini’s first public remarks at 4 p.m. today, about his plans for the Reds.
Channel 9 will be there, though may bail early to get back to “Orpah.” Channels 5 & 12 also airing it.
Hamilton’s ESPN radio, WMOH-AM (1450) will go live, along with WLW-AM (700) and WSAI-AM (Homer 1360). WLW folks are hoping to get Castellini on the air with Gary Burbank when the press conference ends.

Shootout shots
Can't say I'm surprised that ESPN comes to town for the Crosstown Shootout, and gives Bob Huggins more face time than Andy Kennedy or Sean Miller. Once they found Huggs in the stands about midway through second half, they cut back to him 18 times by my count. (The "Two Angry Guys" said this morning he was seated with Clear Channel execs.)
Great game, but of course, Huggs overshadowed it on ESPN. Bet you're not surprised either?
Here's a link to my review:

Good call... It used to bother me when they moved this to ESPN. I always thought the coverage was a little better because the local announcers knew the teams better. This year I was glad that it was on ESPN since I was out of town and was able to watch from my hotel room.

Hi John,

FYI that streamed the entire press conference live.

It's also available in an on-demand version here:

Even if the station doesn't plan to cut in for a particular news conference, we have (and have had since 1998) the ability to stream press conferences and other live events.
