Omaha, Western Games to be Televised
MARYVILLE, Mo.-Northwest Missouri State football fans usually have to wait until December to catch the Bearcats on television. Not so in 2010.
The MIAA announced Wednesday that Northwest's Sept. 18 contest at Nebraska-Omaha and Oct. 2 home date with Missouri Western will be televised on the newly created MIAA Broadcasting Network. Those games are scheduled to kick off at 6 p.m. and 1 p.m., respectively, however those times are subject to change with this new agreement in place.
The MIAA Broadcasting Network will feature 20 televised football and basketball conference games in 2010-11. Those games will be carried live on KSMO Channel 62 in the Kansas City area as well as several cable systems throughout the MIAA geographical footprint, making the games available to more than 1.5 million households.
The MIAA has partnered with Kansas City-based Niles Media Group to provide production, distribution and media sales for the broadcast network. The founders of Niles Media Group - John Denison, John Sprugel and Neil Harwell - have created and operated two other regional sports channels and will all play active roles in the broadcasts produced this year for the MIAA Network.
