Truman Football TV Broadcast Set for Oct. 31

Truman’s football game Oct. 31 at Quincy University will be broadcasted nationally as part of the NCAA Division II Showcase on the American Sports Network (ASN). The game will be seen locally on KTVO CBS 3.2 starting at 11 a.m.

“This is a great opportunity for our guys, program and league to be showcased on a national spotlight,” said Gregg Nesbitt, head football coach. “We had a fantastic game against the Hawks last year at home and look to continue growing this budding rivalry with our closest Division II opponent.”

ASN is operated by the Sinclair Broadcast Group and is composed of 162 Sinclair-owned and operated television stations nationwide with 376 channels in 79 markets, reaching approximately 43 million households nationwide. ASN also has developed an affiliate network of regional sports networks to increase the per-game potential distribution to more than 60 million households on average. The company, which launched in 2014, produced 250 college events in nine sports and plans to air more than 375 events in 2015-16.

Two northeast Missouri Sinclair-owned stations will broadcast the game on their CBS affiliate. Locally, KTVO CBS 3.2 in Kirksville and KHQA-TV 7 in Hannibal/Quincy will have live coverage of the Bulldog/Hawk tilt from QU Stadium.

“We appreciate the NCAA in selecting us as part of their national television package,” said Jerry Wollmering, director of athletics. “We also would like to thank our local station, KTVO CBS, for picking up the broadcast to air as a lead-in to their national Division I games that afternoon and evening. It is a great opportunity for the entire community to watch Truman football.”

In addition to the national television exposure, the game will also be streamed live online, free of charge, at and the Great Lakes Valley Conference Sports Network.
