As preparations take shape for the ACC Network, Heather Lyke envisions that Petersen Events Center will soon have a new look, too. During the second half of the ACC’s annual football kickoff eventFriday morning, Pitt’s athletic director shared some insight on her department’s planning process for what the conference hopes will be a boon of a new linear television channel. “It’s a massive undertaking, and also incredibly exciting,” Lyke said of Pitt’s role as one of 15 campuses readying for the launch of the ACC Network in 2019. “We have a major investment. There’s infrastructure costs, there’s infrastructure pieces to it, there’s personnel pieces to it.” While the channel will debut in fall 2019, each individual school must be ready to go by fall 2018. – BRIAN BATKO, post-gazette.comRead More
