A10 on ASN: Weekly Atlantic 10 show debuts Saturday


A-10 Spotlight, a weekly program covering the people, stories, and news in the Atlantic 10 Conference, premieres Saturday on ASN.

The weekly, 30-minute news magazine hosted by ASN’s Monica McNutt will air Saturdays on 62 Sinclair-owned stations covering 40 million households nationwide. Check local listings for times.

“ASN is excited about expanding our coverage of the Atlantic 10 Conference,” said Bill Lutzen, ASN’s vice president and general manager. “This show will focus on telling the stories about the positive aspects of student-athlete lives and touch on some of the sports that do not necessarily get the recognition they deserve.”

Saturday’s debut episode will include a men’s basketball season preview, an inspirational feature on the dedication of an Atlantic 10 field hockey student-athlete, a behind the scenes look at last weekend’s cross country championships, which were streamed internationally with impressive race footage from cutting-edge drone technology.

The second episode on Nov. 14 will preview the women’s basketball season, showcase highlights from the women’s soccer championship and preview the men’s soccer championship set for Sunday, Nov. 15. Both soccer championship games will air live on ASN.

ASN will televise more than 50 A-10 events across seven sports, including 32 men’s basketball games, nine women’s basketball games and championship coverage in men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball, softball and baseball.

“The Atlantic 10 continues to grow its television presence each year, and ‘A-10 Spotlight’ is a natural next step. It gives us an opportunity to tell many of our stories to a nationwide audience each week,” said Patrick Nero, George Washington University’s athletic director and chair of the A-10 ADs.

“The conference partnership with ASN, and the additional national coverage it provides to the A-10, benefits our programs, coaches and student-athletes in a myriad of ways, from fan and alumni support to recruiting.”
