Rutgers football announced a new partnership with MSG Networks, providing another important anchor into what is a growing presence in New York City.
Being on MSG is another layer of Rutgers tapping into the New York City market. On Friday, the Rutgers Football Kickoff Special aired on MSG. The voice work for the show was provided by Dom Savino, the sultry smooth voice of Rutgers athletics.
At the center of the kickoff special was an interview with head coach Greg Schiano.
The show will be played repeatedly on MSG throughout this week ahead of Sunday’s opener against Northwestern.
The first Regional Sports Network (RSN) ever created, MSG is part of the “nation’s number one media market, the New York DMA, as well as other portions of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania, each year the networks collectively telecast approximately 400 live professional games and feature a compelling lineup of critically acclaimed original programming.”
The deal with MSG is part of Rutgers continued push into New York City. Last year, Rutgers men’s basketball played (and won) at Madison Square Garden in a Big Ten game against Michigan State.
Football is also recruiting New York heavily, having created quite the pipeline to Erasmus Hall over the years and now doing a strong job of getting talent from Long Island as well.
