The good-looking "expert" that Ch. 9 uses during the meet will also be part of the Travers package.

I Must say WNYT & WXXA have always had excelent original sports programs, and I'm not a sports fain by far. WNYT with the Sunday night Big Board Sports, and WXXA with Fast Track, the High School Sports Show, and others. Shows like these are exactly what local channels should be workng on, not firing people.

It will be interesting to see what WTEN will do on Fall Friday nights with only 1 sports reporter.
