TechSideline.com and ESPN Radio
AM 1430 in Blacksburg have formed a media partnership. This alliance brings two
major sports outlets together to better serve Virginia Tech fans. Under the
terms of the partnership TSL staff will appear on ESPN Radio 1430 AM, and ESPN
Radio will provide audio files for posting on TechSideline.com.
ESPN Radio 1430 AM is also providing "Hokie Headlines" audio for
TechSideline.com. The "Hokie Headlines" are a one-minute snapshot of
the big stories of the day in Virginia Tech athletics and can be accessed from
the TSL home page. Hokie Headlines will be provided every weekday and will
usually be updated before 10:30 AM.
When asked about the benefits of the partnership, Aaron Marks of ESPN Radio
AM 1430 said, "The benefits to TechSideline.com
users and ESPN Radio listeners will be tremendous. We look forward to
interviewing Will Stewart and Chris Coleman on a weekly basis. Their knowledge
and depth of VT sports are nearly untouchable. We’ve also laid plans for the
TechSideline team to be a part of our VT football tailgate show. We could not be
happier with having Will & Chris and the TechSideline.com
team as the media partner for ESPN Radio AM 1430."
Will Stewart, General Manager and Managing editor of TechSideline.com,
added, "We’re very excited to be partnering with ESPN Radio AM 1430 and
bringing the ESPN Radio brand to TechSideline.com. This partnership will allow
us to bring high-quality audio content to the web site on a regular basis,
something that has been hit or miss for us in the past. Our subscribers who like
audio content will find this to be a great boost to their enjoyment of the site,
and we’re pleased to help ESPN Radio AM 1430 provide quality content to their
listeners, as well. This is a win-win partnership for fans of ESPN Radio and
fans of TechSideline.com. As time
goes by, I’m sure we’ll think of even more ways to use the partnership to the
advantage of our readers and listeners."
Marks continued, "We hope that the VT sports fan will begin to see
benefits by the end of May. Visit TechSideline.com and listen to ESPN Radio AM
1430 for some very exciting things! We’re pretty sure the Tech fan is going to
love what’s coming."
