Plenty of ways to catch the action in 2009

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Tech football fans have several options for following the Golden Eagles during the 2009 season, from live telecasts of the five home games to radio and Internet broadcasts on the Golden Eagle Sports Network.

All 11 regular season games will be broadcast on the Golden Eagle Sports Network, with Magic 98.5 serving as the flagship station and providing an all-new, uptempo program with expanded pregame shows and sideline coverage.

Roger Ealey returns for his 17th year as the “voice of the Golden Eagles” and will be joined in the broadcast booth by local sports reporter Buddy Pearson. For home games, Lee Wray will add sideline reports on a variety of topics. Pearson will also provide sideline updates with head coach Watson Brown at halftime and post-game.

The pregame show for all five home games begins an hour before kickoff with special reports from the Magic 98.5 Tailgate Park. On the road, the pregame show will go on the air 30 minutes prior to kickoff.

While the move to 50,000-watt Magic 98.5 will provide expanded area coverage of Tech football on the radio, the broadcasts can also be heard anywhere in the country on FREE Teamline on either the telephone or the Internet.

Fans can call 1-800-846-4675 and enter Tech’s team code (0654) to listen on the phone. On the Internet, there is a link to the Teamline coverage on Tech’s official athletics website,

For fans who want to see the action, WCTE TV will provide live coverage of all five home games throughout the region and into the Nashville Metro area. Donnie Cox and Bill Buntin will be at the mike to provide the coverage as WCTE marks its 29th consecutive season of televising Golden Eagle football.

In addition, nine of Tech’s 11 games can be seen via streaming video on the Internet with a subscription to OVCsports.TV. All eight Ohio Valley conference games, plus the non-conference contest with Pikeville, will be available on the league’s website.
