ACC Tournament Telecasts
I live in Raleigh. Here, I have my choice of two ACC Tournament telecasts, one on an ESPN network and the other on WRAL, a local TV station, which receives a syndicated ACC network telecast. Gminski did color this afternoon. Bonner does it tonight. That's for EVERY one of the 14 games. This is done because the ACC Tournament is such a big deal in NC, probably more than many of you can imagine.

I'm curious. How many other local TV stations are broadcasting how many ACC Tournament games? My guess is that something like what we see in Raleigh would be the case in Greensboro and maybe in Charlotte and Louisville but elsewhere? Just the local team's games?

All ACC tournament games are locally broadcast over-the-air in Washington DC (WDCA) independent channel 20.1 (main channel, not a subchannel).

I believe in Pittsburgh they are all being broadcast over-the-air on sub-channels of the local ABC-affiliate WTAE channel 4.2.

All 14 of the tournament games are being broadcast on WFMY in Greensboro.

Tim Brando worked with Gminski this afternoon and Wes Durham (he sounds just like Woody) is working with Bonner this evening.

WFMY is a CBS affiliate and has preempted all CBS network shows to broadcast the tournament.

Thanks for the info.

Looks like BC, Miami and Notre Dame BB don't carry much weight in their local TV markets. Hey, if Pitt can get local broadcasts, why can't Miami?

I also live in Raleigh, and have only been able to get the tournament on WRAL (but not on ESPN or ESPN2). Is it on an ESPN channel I don't get? I don't mind having WRAL preempt all network programming to show the tournament because, for the most part, I haven't found anything on NBC worth watching anyway. I was glad when WRAL changed its network affiliation from CBS.

ACC Tournament Telecasts
I've taught middle school for 30 years. Up until a couple of years ago pretty much every teacher showed all the afternoon games. We don't have TVs anymore.

The actual round one game featuring Boston College was covered by:

STATE MARKET STATION NETWORK
Massachusetts Boston NESN RSN
Massachusetts Springfield-Holyoke (WSBK) IND

and the Miami vs. Syracuse game was on

STATE MARKET STATION NETWORK
Florida Miami-Fort Lauderdale WBFS My Network TV

The problem is, those teams aren't enough to get the rest of the tournament on local TV (though they are still on ESPN, ACC Network Extra, and even TheACC.com, so it's not like locals can't watch!)

Notre Dame is another story - no local TV even for their game tomorrow. They are competing with some very good local Big Ten teams, but still...
