Golf Channel To Integrate Tweets Into Nationwide Tour Coverage
Published October 28, 2011
The broadcast will feature segments sporadically alternating between traditional golf coverage with host Jerry Foltz and lead analyst Craig Perks and social media segments with Hoggard and Mell’s Twitter perspective. Additional microphones will be positioned throughout the course to pick up sounds from the players and caddies and paired with on-screen tweets. Fan tweets will not appear on Golf Channel and the net has no formal plans to expand the concept beyond Saturday.
