Broad­cast op­por­tu­ni­ties

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

THERE is next to no chance of a po­ten­tial game at Childers or Bund­aberg be­ing broad­cast on Chan­nel Nine.

It is sim­ply a mat­ter of cost ac­cord­ing to O’Con­nor, who said it was un­likely any games north of Kin­garoy could be broad­cast.

“Once you get past there the costs go through the roof,” he said.

“It has to be within a few hours of Bris­bane.

“We would love to broad­cast more games but we sim­ply couldn’t af­ford it.

“Kin­garoy was one of the fur­thest from Bris­bane. That was more out of a part­ner­ship with the State Gov­ern­ment. Lo­cal mem­ber Deb Freck­ling­ton was a ma­jor part of that.”
