OXFORD, Ohio -- If you can't be at Faurot Field in person, be sure to catch Saturday's broadcast of the Miami-Missouri football on the Miami-ISP Sports Network. The game is not being televised.
Coach Michael Haywood's 2-1 RedHawks take on the undefeated and 24th-ranked Tigers in Columbia, Mo. Kickoff is at 2 p.m. ET, with the StartSkyDiving.com Pregame Show beginning at 1 p.m., then the Bud Light Countdown to Kickoff slated for 1:30 p.m.
In its fifth year of its partnership with ISP Sports, the Miami ISP Sports Network, presented by McCullough-Hyde, continues to cover RedHawk Athletics, with its impressive group of affiliates blanketing most of Southwest Ohio and Southeast Indiana.
Miami Director of Broadcasting and assistant athletic director Steve Baker joins Tim Bray in the booth and sideline reporter Terry Bridge as they deliver the play-by-play accounts, commentary and sideline updates.
The Miami ISP Sports Network's family of affiliates includes Middletown's WPFB-FM 105.9 and WPFB-AM 910, Richmond's WFMG-FM 101.3 and WKBV-AM 1490, Hamilton's WMOH-AM 1450 and Dayton's WONE-AM 1490.
The Miami ISP Sports Network is anchored by Baker, who returned to the microphone in 2001 as the "Voice of Miami Athletics" after a four-year absence. Baker served as Miami's play-by-play announcer for a decade from the mid-1980s to 1997.
Assisting in the booth and providing color commentary is Tim Bray, the director of media relations for the Kentucky Speedway and a former sports anchor on WKRC-TV in Cincinnati. A 1978 graduate of Bowling Green State University, Bray has been associated with MAC football since 1975, working on the MAC's Television and Radio Games of the Week. In addition to covering the Cincinnati sports scene, Bray has handled radio play-by-play duties for Ohio State, Cincinnati, Xavier and BGSU.
Long-time Butler County broadcaster Terry Bridge returns to the sidelines in 2010. Terry served as color analyst for Miami football and basketball broadcasts in the mid-90's and has been a guest color-analyst in recent years. He also broadcasts high school football, basketball, and baseball for Miami ISP Sports Network Affiliate 1450-The Ticket WMOH in Hamilton, Ohio.
Miami's football broadcasts include a 30-minute postgame show, sponsored by RedHawkShop.com.
The Miami ISP Sports Network broadcasts also are available on the RedHawks' official web site at www.MURedHawks.com. CBS once again will partner to provide the audio streaming for the Miami ISP Sports Network on the internet.
