PALADIN MEDIA GROUP TO PROVIDE UNPRECEDENTED ONLINE COVERAGE OF ACC SPORTING EVENTS

Exclusive online video streams provide ACC fans across the country a new way to see their sport

Charlottesville, Virginia – Paladin Media Group has announced that it will provide the production services for exclusive coverage of ACC sporting events not available on broadcast or cable television. Teaming with Turner Broadcasting’s ACC Select to cover competition at the University of Virginia, this marks the first time in Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) history that online video streams of regular season games are being made available to a national fan base.

Paladin Sports has already begun coverage of forty-plus NCAA events, including women’s and men’s lacrosse, tennis, basketball, softball and baseball, among others. The wide range of contests delivers an unprecedented opportunity for fans to watch live and on-demand coverage of college athletics rarely available on television. ACC Select utilizes the production and technical capabilities of Paladin Media Group and Turner Broadcasting, which also provides streaming video platforms for many properties, including CNN.com, NASCAR.COM and PGA.com. ACC Select games will be available exclusively at www.accselect.com.

Launched in September 2006 through a partnership with Raycom Sports, Lincoln Financial Sports and the ACC, ACC Select provides fans with the best seat in the house for the conference’s Olympic-type sports. The site includes a large portfolio of match-ups across 20 different sports for all 12 ACC schools. “From baseball and basketball, to lacrosse and tennis, ACC Select is the best place for alumni, parents and fans everywhere to watch ACC sports and match-ups that they can’t see anywhere else,” said Phil Sharpe, Senior Vice President of technical operations and development for Turner Sports.

The ACC and UVA are nationally recognized for strength in athletics, both men’s and women’s, providing just the kind of events a national audience wants to see. Live and on-demand streams on the web are a groundbreaking way to get them there. “The [program] continues to reach new milestones and we are extremely excited to be out in the forefront of this technology,” said ACC Commissioner John D. Swofford.

Paladin, too, is excited to be such an important part of this forward-looking venture. Paladin Sports is responsible for the production of the remainder of the ACC Select events at UVA this season and is looking forward to expanding their partnership with Turner Sports. “We’re thrilled to be providing this opportunity for UVA students, alumni, recruits, parents and athletes,” says Josh McGonigle, Paladin’s Coordinating Producer for Turner ACC Select, “and we’re anxious to extend our coverage to more sports, like football, more schools and more conferences in the seasons to come.”
