PULLMAN, Wash.–Bob Robertson’s first Rose Bowl broadcast will be as close as your computer.
The play-by-play description of the game by Robertson, in his 31st year as the voice of the Cougars, will be available throughout the world on the Internet.
The rights for radio broadcast of the Rose Bowl limits coverage by the WSU Crimson and Gray Sports Network. However, the network flagship station, Seattle’s KJR, and KWSU radio are allowed full-game coverage by Robertson and Paul Sorensen, who provides color commentary.
Cougars around the world using audio player software can hear those familiar voices by logging on to the WSU Internet home page, www.wsu.edu, and clicking on a button to access the broadcast. The audio feed is being provided by WSU’s Educational Telecommunications and Technology unit in cooperation with Broadcast Ink Sports Productions of Seattle.
According to ETT’s Dave Cillay, the Internet broadcast will begin with pre-game coverage at 11:30 a.m. on New Years Day and end at 7 p.m. following post-game reports.
