Dear North Carolina Sports Fan,

You already know why the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network is North Carolina’s must-have sports network.

Today, there’s another reason; MASN announced an agreement to televise 9 of the 12 East Carolina University football games this season.

This fall, MASN will air ECU match-ups with Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Southern Miss, Houston, UTEP, UAB, Memphis, Marshall and Tulane. MASN will also carry the weekly Skip Holtz Show, where the Pirates head coach offers in-depth game analysis and fields questions from fans.

Coach Holtz said, “we are excited that MASN has become a broadcast partner with ECU Football. Anytime our program can get additional television exposure, especially in MASN’s 7-state territory, it benefits our fans and gives our recruiting efforts a shot in the arm.”

The ECU games add to an already extensive lineup of North Carolina NCAA football, basketball and lacrosse, as well as coaches’ shows featuring UNC, Wake Forest, UNC Wilmington, Campbell, NC State, UNC Charlotte, UNC Greensboro, Winston-Salem State, Appalachian State, Davidson, and Duke.
