LSN Adds ESPN3 to Lafayette-Lehigh Telecast Distribution
Nov. 20, 2013
ESPN3 to an already robust distribution of Saturday's Lafayette vs. Lehigh football game. LSN's telecast of the 149th meeting of college football's most played rivalry will air live to one of the largest audiences ever, as it can be seen starting at 12:30 pm ET on MASN2 (DirectTV 641, Dish Network 433), RCN-4 and 1004 HD in the Lehigh Valley, WBPH60 in Eastern Pa. and Western N.J. as well as RCN-8 and 608 HD in Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago and Washington, D.C.
This is the 14th consecutive year that LSN has televised the Lafayette-Lehigh game, 11th straight year that LSN is providing live coverage of Lafayette football's entire season and fifth straight year that LSN has partnered with ESPN for distribution on ESPN3.com, WatchESPN and ESPN GamePlan. Four other LSN telecasts aired on ESPN outlets during the 2013 Lafayette football season -- the Penn game on ESPN3 and ESPNGamePlan; the Princeton game on ESPN3; the Harvard game on ESPN3 and ESPN GamePlan; the Georgetown game on ESPN3.
LSN's broadcast team doubled in size for telecasts of home games from Fisher Stadium and will join the broadcast for Saturday's Lafayette-Lehigh telecast, handling LSN's pregame, halftime and postgame shows. Matt Provence, the voice of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs since their inception, hosts the game day set while a pair of Lafayette All-Americans - Phil Ng '88 and Maurice Bennett '06 - join Provence as analysts.
Gary Laubach is handling all of the Leopards' play-by-play duties for the 17th season and is joined by analyst Mike Joseph '88 for his fourth year in the television booth. In his 16th year as a member of the broadcast team, John Leone reports on the Leopards from the sidelines.
