UNC Game Will Be Played, But No TV

ATLANTA -- An extraordinary weather event has turned Atlanta into a mess as Carolina prepares to face Georgia Tech tonight at 7 p.m.

The game was originally scheduled to be televised on ESPN2. However, getting a broadcast from the game site to your television involves much more than just announcers—the network also needs a production truck, equipment, and numerous other personnel.

With Atlanta in virtual gridlock and city officials begging residents to stay off the roads, it was impossible to get all the needed items safely into place in time for tipoff. Therefore, there will be no television coverage of tonight's game.

The Tar Heel Sports Network will, as always, be available via the usual network affiliates. In addition, the network has arranged to make its radio broadcast available free online to fans around the world through GoHeels.com, as well as 46 radio affiliates across the state.

The full broadcast—beginning with the pregame show at 6 p.m. Eastern time—will be available through this link.

Then, at 7 p.m., Jones Angell and Eric Montross will have the call of every play. After the game, full postgame coverage will be available, including comments from Roy Williams.

Again, there is no video coverage available anywhere of tonight's game. But we look forward to sharing the action with you on the Tar Heel Sports Network and hope you'll enjoy a one-night window into the ACC's radio-heavy past.

You can also follow the game via Twitter through the program's official account, and the on-site broadcast crew on Twitter as follows: Jones Angell, Eric Montross, Adam Lucas.
