RALEIGH, NC — Peace College Director of Athletics Kelly Johnson announced a broadcast partnership with New Media Television Sports (NMTV Sports/NMTV.com) for the remainder of the basketball season and into the spring sports season. The agreement allows for video of Peace basketball home games to air through the college’s official athletic website, gopeacepacers.org.
The alliance with NMTV.com Sports will also allow Peace the opportunity to broadcast video of Pacer volleyball matches, softball games and soccer matches in the future.
NMTV currently broadcasts games for USA South Athletic Conference teams, Greensboro College, Averett University and Maryville College in football. Over 300 DI, DII, DIII and NAIA colleges and universities across the nation are partnered with NMTV, formerly known as Penn Atlantic, which is based out of Charleston, SC.
NMTV’s expansion includes further broadband coverage, mobile video opportunities and most importantly, distribution of games through IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) and cable systems throughout the country for its partner schools and conferences.
The first video broadcast is planned for Wednesday, January 19 when the Pacers hosts nationally ranked Greensboro College with game announcers Patrick Johnson and Peace professor Dr. David McLennan providing the call. Peace students are also contributing special features and interviews to the broadcasts this season.
All broadcasts, home or away, will be proceeded by the 30-minute "Pacer Countdown To Tip-Off" radio show, which features a preview of the game, comments from Pacers coach Kelly Johnson and Peace players and news from around the USA South Athletic Conference.
