The Lafayette Sports Network, the national leader in Division I FCS television coverage, will broadcast all 11 regular-season Lafayette football games for the ninth straight year. Now in its 15th year, LSN has set the national standard for television and broadband coverage and has become a staple for Leopard fans worldwide. LSN's traditional live distribution to more than 10 million homes on RCN-4 and WBPH-60 covering all of Eastern Pennsylvania will be enhanced once again this season by live coverage on all of RCN's cable systems in major markets along the East coast. RCN subscribers in Boston (226,000), New York City (250,000), Philadelphia (382,000) and Washington, D.C. (131,000) will be able to watch Lafayette games live on RCN-8.
Also returning to the LSN-TV distribution list this season are ESPN GamePlan, ESPN's pay per view service, and ESPN3.com, ESPN's broadband service. These ESPN outlets are picking up as many as seven LSN telecasts throughout the 2010 football season.
LSN football telecasts will be picked up for the 11th straight year by DIRECTV and DISH Network outlets, available to more than 90 million viewers nationally via the Mid Atlantic Sports Network (MASN). MASN, which is available regionally and nationally on DIRECTV channel 640 and DISH Network channel 432, is the official television home of the Baltimore Orioles, Washington Nationals and Baltimore Ravels and reaches nearly 6 million homes in a seven-state region from Harrisburg, Pa. to Charlotte, N.C.
Gary Laubach is handling all of the Leopards' play-by-play duties for the 15th straight season and will be joined for the second year by analyst Mike Joseph '88. In his 14th year as a member of the broadcast team is John Leone, who will report on the Leopards from the sidelines.
