MRN, Daytona's WNDB Team Up For Blanket Coverage Of Rolex 24

The season-opening event of the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series is the first of 82 race broadcasts on MRN’s 2013 schedule, originating from 32 different venues including Daytona International Speedway.

All 25 hours of this weekend’s MRN programming will be heard on WNDB-AM 1150, a Black Crow Media Group station with a signal that reaches throughout Volusia and southern Flagler Counties in Central Florida.

“What a great way to open the 2013 season,” said MRN President and Executive Producer David Hyatt. “We’re launching our fourth year of live coverage of the entire GRAND-AM schedule and it’s a privilege to bring WNDB on board as a partner for the season-opening Rolex 24.”

Six hours of coverage this weekend will air over MRN’s nationwide network of affiliate stations starting at 3 p.m. (EST) Saturday, and concluding with the closing laps and post-race coverage from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday. Eli Gold and Preston Root will anchor the broadcast. Programming from “The World Center of Racing” will be produced by Ryan Horn and Amanda Trautman.
In addition to all 25 hours of coverage airing on WNDB, the entire race broadcast will also be streamed live at www.motorracingnetwork.com.

“This will be a first for the network – producing and staffing the entire 24 hours of the race ourselves,” Hyatt said. “It’s a big undertaking and I know we will meet the challenge.”

The overnight hours of the broadcast will be anchored by Mike Bagley and Jeff Striegle from midnight to 3 a.m. Sunday with Kyle Rickey and Buddy Long picking up the next shift. Gold and Root will return to the booth at 6 a.m.

Long and Ricky will also cover the action in the turns around the 3.56-mile circuit. Pit reporters are Tony Rizzuti, Alex Hayden, Jason Toy and Woody Cain.
