EASTON, Pa. - The Lafayette Sports Network will provide live coverage of all 11 games on the 2012 Lafayette football ledger for the 10th straight season. LSN is partnering with ESPN on as many as 10 broadcasts for possible distribution on ESPN3 and ESPN GamePlan.
LSN's traditional live distribution to more than 10 million viewers on RCN-TV and WBPH-60 covering all of Eastern Pennsylvania will be enhanced 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 the RCN-TV network. In addition to standard definition dial positions (4 in the Lehigh Valley and 8 elsewhere), RCN-TV can now be seen on the HD tier (1004 in the Lehigh Valley and 608 in Philadelphia).
Nationally, LSN telecasts will be picked up for the 12th straight year by DIRECTV and DISH Network outlets, through WBPH-60 and the Mid Atlantic Sports Network (MASN). All televised games will be available live on WBPH-60, located on channel 60 on DIRECTV and 8169 on DISH Network.
MASN, which is available regionally and nationally on DIRECTV channel 640 and DISH Network channel 432, is the television home of the Baltimore Orioles, Washington Nationals and Baltimore Ravens and reaches nearly six million homes in a seven-state region from Harrisburg, Pa. to Charlotte, N.C. Each LSN football telecast will air tape-delay on MASN.
All 11 contests will be streamed live worldwide on GoLeopards.com and select games will air live on ESPN3, ESPN GamePlan or both as a part of LSN's partnership with ESPN. LSN's distribution on ESPN3 and ESPN GamePlan will be announced on a weekly basis throughout the season.
The season opener at William & Mary can be seen regionally on RCN-TV, WBPH-60 and worldwide on ESPN3 and GoLeopards.com. The Leopards' Patriot League opener at Bucknell on Sept. 22 will be televised live nationwide by CBS Sports Network and GoLeopards.com will carry an audio broadcast of the game. The following week, when Lafayette travels to Robert Morris, the game will be available exclusively on GoLeopards.com.
The remaining seven games will be televised on LSN-TV, as well as streamed through GoLeopards.com and its subscription-based service. LSN's telecast of the the 148th meeting of College Football's Most Played Rivalry, Lafayette vs. Lehigh on Nov. 17, will also be carried live by MASN2 on DirecTV 641, Dish 433.
Gary Laubach will handle all of the Leopards' play-by-play duties for the 16th season and will be joined by analyst Mike Joseph '88 for his third year in the television booth. In his 15th year as a member of the broadcast team, John Leone will report on the Leopards from the sidelines.
