Tony Bruno Sports Network Elevates Broadcasting Experience with NextKast OnAir Multi-Party GoLive Platform
Texas, USA – January 8, 2024
The Tony Bruno Sports Network (TBSN), a dynamic force in sports talk, proudly announces its adoption of NextKast OnAir as the automation platform of choice. This collaboration marks a significant stride in TBSN’s commitment to delivering high-quality live programming to sports enthusiasts.
TBSN, a newly formed sports network, features a lineup of six daily live programs, including the flagship “Live Tony Bruno Show” airing Monday through Friday from 3pm to 6pm Eastern Time. Broadcasting online through its dedicated iPhone and Android apps, as well as the website www.TonyBrunoSportsNetwork.com, the network caters to a diverse audience of sports aficionados.
The driving force behind selecting NextKast OnAir was TBSN’s need for a versatile automation system that seamlessly facilitates live interactions among hosts situated in different locations. NextKast’s innovative goLive multi-host feature emerged as the ideal solution, enabling hosts to connect, broadcast, and engage with each other live from any web browser. The platform’s built-in processing ensures optimal audio quality, giving the broadcasts a rich and authentic radio sound. Hosts gain control of the station, initiate commercial breaks, and manage various aspects through the user-friendly goLive web interface.
According to Robin Austin, Executive Producer at TBSN, “It was imperative that we connect from multiple locations as many of the hosts at TBSN are located in different parts of the nation. What Winston and NextKast have put together is fantastic. Our hosts can connect from wherever they are, control the automation, do crossovers, and it sounds like they are in the same studio. It’s exactly what we were looking for.”
Renowned sports radio host Tony Bruno expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “I wanted to make sure the station had that booming live FM sound. That BIG sound is what made me want to go into radio in the first place. Unfortunately, a lot of live digital stations sound tinny & hollow. When you listen to TBSN in the car, or on your phone, it’s amazing how good it sounds. You know what that is? Beautiful.”
In addition to the GoLive Multi-Party Host system, each talk segment is automatically recorded with date/time and show stamps, facilitating easy distribution to other podcast platforms and stations.
