We have spent a lot of time preparing for this brand new broadcasting year for our ATVN video customers.
Part of that preparation involves putting together the best on-air staff that we can find. We are blessed to welcome in the following new additions to the Astound TV Network’s sportscasting family for the autumn 2023 high school sports season.
Philadelphia’s 6/ABC Action News’s Renee Washington – yes, THAT Renee Washington – will be calling soccer games with us this fall in addition to her handling sideline/courtside reporting. Renee has been a frequent guest on our “ATVN SportsTalk” show, and can also be seen throughout the year handling broadcasting duties for ESPN, Fox Sports and other national TV outlets.
McKenna will begin her ATVN broadcast career with our coverage of high school volleyball this season. She has experience doing both play-by-play and color analyst work for the Big 10+ Network doing volleyball and basketball and will also be working for the Penn State Network on their Saturday football broadcasts this fall.
James joins our on-air staff as a color analyst for the fall high school football season. Lehigh Valley fans will remember him as a featured running back with the Easton Red Rovers. An outstanding two-sport athlete, Middleton went on to play basketball at the collegiate level and will also be taking over as the new head girls basketball coach at Whitehall High School this winter.
MELVIN THOMAS JR
Mel was a three-time letter winner playing Division I college football at the University of Colorado before being drafted by Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles. After stints as a high school football coach, he’s joining the ATVN broadcast team and will also be writing a bi-weekly football blog here on our website.
Please join me in welcoming these new personalities to your television sets and video monitors this fall!
Also, be on the lookout for more announcers coming to the ATVN Sports family for the winter sports season!
