ABC 7 & FOX 22 EXPANDS COVERAGE OF HUSSON UNIVERSITY SPORTS
WVII ABC 7 & WFVX FOX 22 are excited to announce they have reached a two year television partnership beginning in fall 2013 to broadcasting five Husson University sports events this coming fall and winter season. The partners will look to expand to cover more events in the second year of the deal.
Michael Palmer, Vice President and General Manager of WVII and WFVX, said, “ABC7 and FOX 22 are very excited to air Husson Sports on local television.
We are committed to serving our local community and to that end we have made substantial investments the last few years, adding local jobs, local
and now local college sports. We have a strong relationship with our friends at Husson and look forward to the future."
“This first year of our partnership, we will be airing one football game and four basketball games. Two men's and two women's games” said WVII/WFVX Promotion Manager Gene Hardin.
“Last season on 12/1/2012 when we aired Husson basketball as a joint effort with NESCom we were the first station in Bangor to ever produce and broadcast a local sports event in High Definition. The production of all games again this season will be a collaboration between The New England School of Communications and WVII/WFVX and all games will again be produced and broadcast in HD”
