COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - CSTV Networks will broadcast a live special presentation from the 2005 Mountain West Conference Basketball Media Day, Wednesday night, marking the first time in league history MWC basketball media day will be televised and the second live MWC media day event produced by CSTV. The MWC Football Media Blitz aired live on CSTV in July.
Tabbed "Mountain West Basketball Media Tipoff," the show will air live on CSTV: College Sports Television and online via the official Web sites of CSTV (www.cstv.com) and the MWC (www.TheMWC.com ) Wednesday from 6 to 9 p.m. MT. The men's basketball show will air from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. MT, followed by the women's show from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. MT.
The special presentation reinforces CSTV's "fans first" commitment, offering fans an inside look at MWC basketball as never seen before. Head men's and women's basketball coaches and student-athletes from all nine institutions will appear live on-air to preview the 2005-06 basketball season and answer questions submitted by fans online.
Held at the University Park Marriott in Salt Lake City, Utah, the Mountain West Basketball Media Tipoff will be hosted by CSTV commentator and author Seth Davis.
A new era begins in the fall of 2006 as CSTV becomes the official television partner for the Mountain West Conference. The MWC forged an agreement with CSTV, giving the fastest-growing independent cable network exclusive rights to Mountain West Conference football and men's basketball, plus coverage for all other MWC sports. The only multimedia company fully dedicated to college and amateur sports, CSTV has assured that MWC constituents will see more MWC sports at more convenient times and in more media platforms than ever before.
The agreement incorporates all Conference-related media and marketing rights, including all television, national over-the-air and satellite radio, video-on-demand, and online and broadband rights. The multi-media partnership also includes Mountain West TV, the first-ever regional sports network dedicated solely to an intercollegiate athletic conference.
