CLEVELAND, OH. (March 21, 2000)
E-sports.com, a leader in the syndicated sports content industry, will Webcast its new program, e-sports.com radio, live on Thursday, March 23 at 7 p.m. EST/4 p.m. PST at www.e-sports.com.
The Webcast, in partnership with WorldStream Communications (www.worldstream.com), a leader in the Webcast industry, will feature a one-on-one interview with boxing legend Oscar de la Hoya by e-sports author Francis Walker. Walker has covered boxing since December 1995, and has interviewed fighters such as Roy Jones, Jr., Riddick Bowe, Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield. In this exclusive event, de la Hoya discusses his loss to WBC/IBF welterweight champ Felix Trinidad and other issues he believes have hampered his professional boxing career.
E-sports.com radio will also offer listeners the opportunity to interact with show host Phil Giubileo, a nine-year veteran of sports talk shows and e-sports! author. Phil began his career as a sports reporter for National Public Radio affiliate WFUV Radio in New York in 1991, and has worked for numerous stations, including WABC, CBS Radio Sports, WBAB-FM and WFAN-AM, the nation’s first all-sports radio station. Currently a producer and content editor with WorldStream, Phil will take listeners’ questions and moderate a live chat.
"People who tune in to e-sports.com radio are going to be surprised," explains Dustin S. Klein, e-sports.com Editor-in-Chief. "This program will set the stage for the next phase of sports analysis and commentary over the Net. Over the next few months, we’ll be bringing together professional and amateur athletes, sports commentators and analysts, and link them up with sports fans."
The program will last one hour. During this inaugural show, Phil will solicit e-mail-based questions from listeners to be asked of members of the Arizona Diamondbacks during an e-sports exclusive visit to Diamondbacks Training Camp the weekend of March 24th. Questions can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Phil will Webcast the answers during the March 30th edition of e-sports.com radio.
