Dan PatrickThe Content Factory, brand management for The Dan Patrick Show, announced today a two-year partnership agreement with StubHub. The multi-platform program will integrate the StubHub brand with all Dan Patrick media.

Details of the partnership include Dan Patrick-voiced commercials spots for StubHub, sponsorship of the Dan Patrick Show studio, a Ticket Club with special opportunities for Dan's listeners and promotional plans to highlight special StubHub ticket opportunities.

Financial details were not released.

"We want to continue improving our radio program and all of the online benefits we offer to our listeners," said Patrick. "Aligning with StubHub will inform our listeners of the benefits of buying or selling tickets on the open ticket marketplace platform that has reinvented how sports fans find tickets today."

Patrick's radio show, heard weekdays 9am - noon ET will now be broadcasted from the "StubHub Studios. (Hear it here). Patrick's StubHub Ticket Club will create a unique marketing opportunity that will live online at SI.com, danpatrick.com and Patrick's affinity program Dan Nation. Additional promotions called "Who's With Me?" will offer listeners chances to win prizes to see the nation's top sports, concerts and entertainment events courtesy of StubHub. Dan Nation members will also have unique opportunities to "Live Like Dan" by accumulating points to win tickets from StubHub and "behind the scenes" access to the biggest stages of sports.

Content Factory, managing partner, Jimmy de Castro said, "Wow, now I finally have a great ticket guy. Seriously, we are thrilled with this partnership with StubHub because it creates a unique opportunity for Dan Patrick listeners to experience live sports events and concerts without the usual worries, thanks to StubHub

"StubHub's relationship with Dan Patrick dates back to 2004 when Dan's legendary voice introduced StubHub's service to America on our first commercial radio spots," said Chris Tsakalakis, president of StubHub. "We're very happy to reunite with Dan on air as he's firmly entrenched himself as one of America's most recognizable and entertaining sports personalities after a celebrated career anchoring Sportscenter. A relationship between StubHub and the Dan Patrick Show is a natural fit and one we hope continues for many years."

Guests on Patrick’s show have ranged recently from Senator John McCain, Nolan Ryan, Charles Barkley, David Beckham, NASCAR's Tony Stewart, and Mark Cuban. The show is distributed by The Content Factory on a variety of media platforms, and can now be heard on more than 115 terrestrial radio stations along with XM's Ch. 144 Sports Nation where it airs live and rebroadcasts from 11pm to 2am.

ESPNESPN will launch the ESPN HD Radio network on Saturday, June 7 to coincide with the start of the UEFA Euro 2008 tournament. ESPN Radio will make available compelling sports content for the 1,714 stations broadcasting with HD Radio technology across the nation via a ground-breaking, internet/satellite-based delivery system. HD Radio technology is transforming AM and FM broadcasting with a vastly increased number of channels, drastically improved sound quality, and an array of new data services.

Using a specialized ESPN HD Radio network appliance, subscribing stations will be able to customize and program their own ESPN HD Radio stations. The network appliance (content server) will allow a station staff member to pre-program their station(s) on the internet from one easy-to-use interface. The content server will allow affiliate stations to pick and choose from a wide array of compelling sports content options -- both live and pre-recorded -- providing a simple one-box solution for generating localized HD Radio programming from an up-to-the-moment menu of content.

In addition to providing conventional audio content, the content server will also give HD Radio stations unique sports data-casting abilities such as bottom-line data, clock and score information and other non audio services specifically designed for the HD Radio system. Stations can also simplify the process of localizing content and commercials with automatic settings on the ESPN HD Radio content server.

These broadcasts will be available to any listener of an ESPN HD Radio FM affiliate who has an HD Radio receiver. HD Radio multicasting is new technology whereby stations can broadcast multiple programs in high quality in the same frequency. ESPN Radio's FM affiliates can take advantage of additional marquee and exclusive programming provided by ESPN, by airing these programs on their HD Radio HD2/HD3 multicast channels.

Robin VenturaRobin Ventura, the MLB vet who played 10 seasons with the White Sox, will fill-in for broadcaster Steve Stone this coming weekend on WSCR-AM 670’s White Sox games. According to the Chicago Tribune, Ventura is not sure whether he’s ready for broadcasting as a second career:

"I don't know if I'd do it yet," Ventura said. "It's definitely not a natural thing for me. There are times when I need to speak more. When I did the World Series game with Gary Thorne, he told me I didn't have to say anything at all. He's professional enough to cover up if I didn't say anything."

Jete and Ortiz in XM Radio CampaignGetting tired (already) of Obama, Clinton, and McCain talk? Want new fresh faces on the campaign trail? How about Derek Jeter and David Ortiz as new candidates.

Both Jeter and Ortiz have tossed their caps into the ring to campaign for XM Satellite Radio.

The "race" is the new multimedia marketing campaign from XM that will run throughout the course of the season.

A new XM TV spot offers a parody of election ads with Ortiz campaigning for the "Every Game" platform, while Jeter stumps for "Every Team." The TV spot and online ads are premiering this week.

Baseball fans can visit the new web site XMBaseball.com to choose Jeter or Ortiz for the President of XM Baseball, and send their friends a personalized audio message from their candidate.

Coming soon, the web site will let you upload a personal photo and create a bobblehead image with your favorite team's uniform. With your bobblehead image, you will be able to star in your own campaign video as the running mate for Jeter or Ortiz, and share it with your friends. You will also be able to create a voicemail greeting from the candidates, or download a customized ringtone.

You can also reach JeterForPresident.com or OrtizForPresident.com.

XMMajor League Baseball will open the 2008 regular season on March 25 with the World Series champion Boston Red Sox and Oakland A's in Japan. XM Satellite Radio will air three live broadcasts of the game, including one broadcast in Japanese.

The Red Sox will play the A's in front of a sold-out crowd at the Tokyo Dome at 6:05 am ET. XM will air the Red Sox radio broadcast, the A's broadcast, and a Japanese-language broadcast on three separate channels.

XM airs every MLB game for every team throughout the regular season and postseason. XM carries the team broadcasts so fans can hear legendary announcers like Vin Scully, Bob Uecker and Harry Kalas. XM is the exclusive home of the MLB Home Plate channel, the nation's only talk radio channel devoted to the sport 24 hours a day, and the MLB En Espanol channel, which offers games and baseball talk radio in Spanish.

Maury Brown of the Business of Sports Network is often featured on MLB Home Plate.

"There is no sport better suited to radio than baseball," said Eric Logan, XM executive vice president, programming. "This year's season opener is especially exciting because the game is being played in Tokyo. With the time difference, a lot of fans will be able to hear the game on XM while they drive to work. This is our fourth season as the official satellite radio network of MLB. Whether you're a Yankees fan living in Los Angeles or a Cubs fan vacationing in Miami, you can hear the games for all thirty teams on your XM radio."

For Opening Night on March 30, the Washington Nationals will play their first game at Nationals Park, their brand-new stadium near the U.S. Capitol. The Nationals will host the Atlanta Braves starting at 8:05 pm ET. XM will air the Nationals broadcast, the Braves broadcast, and the ESPN Radio broadcast of the game. The MLB Home Plate channel will be live from Nationals Park throughout the day.

The traditional Opening Day on March 31 will bring 14 baseball games to the XM roster, starting with the New York Yankees' season opener against the Toronto Blue Jays at 1:05 pm ET. This will be the last Opening Day game at Yankee Stadium, and the MLB Home Plate channel will report live from the site.

A weekly MLB game schedule is available online at http://www.xmradio.com/mlbschedule. Every game for every team during the regular season and postseason is heard nationwide on XM channels 176 to 189. MLB Home Plate is XM channel 175. MLB En Espanol is channel 174.
