Meredith’s WFSB Hartford has joined forces with Connecticut Public Broadcasting Network wing CPTV to launch a 24-hour local sports network. The Connecticut Sports Network (CTSN) launched about 45 minutes ago on CPTV and Comcast systems throughout Connecticut.
"This new network is a natural extension of WFSB’s commitment to covering local sports while giving advertisers a highly efficient new way to reach an important market," said WFSB VP/General Manager Klarn DePalma.
The channel offers Connecticut high school and college sporting events, news and specials.
Michael Malone, senior content producer at B+C/Multichannel News, covers network programming, including entertainment, news and sports on broadcast, cable and streaming; and local broadcast television. He hosts the podcasts Busted Pilot, about what’s new in television, and Series Business, a chat with the creator of a new program, and writes the column “The Watchman.” He joined B+C in 2005. His journalism has also appeared in The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Playboy and New York magazine.
