O'S AND TRIBE GO ONLINE TO INTERACT WITH FANS DURING GAMES
Published June 20, 1995
Two regional sports channels are going online during their baseball telecasts, following a similarly successful program started by the A's broadcast partner, KRON-TV. In Cleveland, SportsChannel Ohio offered fans watching last Wednesday's telecast of the Indians-Orioles game a chance to interact with announcers John Saunders and Rick Manning on Prodigy. The two received more than 50 e-mail messages from fans, and the broadcast team addressed more than a dozen on-air. SportsChannel Ohio hopes to go online for more future Indians home games (SportsChannel Ohio). In Baltimore and Washington, Home Team Sports, a division of Prime, has announced that it will feature announcers Jim Palmer and Mel Proctor in a forum on America Online during Saturday's game against the Red Sox. The announcers will respond to online questions during inning breaks, and AOL members will compete for prizes by answering Orioles trivia (HTS).
