Greenville Pickens Speedway And WCSZ Announce 2002 Pre-Race Broadcast Agreement
GREENVILLE, SC (February 8, 2002)- Officials from Greenville Pickens Speedway and WCSZ-1070am today announced plans for a race day broadcast to originate from the GPS pit area, beginning with the initial broadcast on opening night at the historic 1/2 mile track on Saturday, March 16. The two hour pre-race show, airing throughout the 16 county Upstate area and into Western North Carolina, will be co-anchored by GPS marketing director Keith Cochran and long time GPS competitor Tyler Bob Mangum. Topics will center on local racing and NASCAR touring series that visit the speedway throughout the season, but will also cover a broad range of race related topics. Listeners will be encouraged to call in to speak with their favorite drivers, ask questions, and win race related prizes.
"We are expanding on a program that was started last season which gave race fans a great opportunity to jump start their race day," said Cochran. "They can listen at home or in their shops, or come early to the track and tune in as they set up in the grandstands or on the backstretch. It is just one more way that race fans can get closer to the drivers and race teams that help make Greenville Pickens a top seasonal attraction in the Upstate."
"WCSZ is thrilled to reach this agreement today with Greenville Pickens Speedway," said WCSZ director of programming Zackery Kick. "The importance of racing in this area and the huge fan following of Greenville Pickens Speedway cannot be underestimated, and we look forward to including this new feature broadcast as a way to build a bridge to this large Upstate marketplace," Kick said.
The show will air live from the Greenville Pickens Speedway pit area from noon until 2pm on race day, beginning with the first broadcast on March 16.
