I will inquire after work today if they might reserve the television for Sunday evening. Please reply to this message if you are interested.

Saturday Evening?

How about Saturday evening for the Time Trial, as there still might be some drama.

We have Saturday night

8:30pm - 11pm

Apparently they've been airing the tour every evening since the Alp d'Huez stage. Jim seemed pretty happy to hear that we would be returning.

We might have to find out what they could do for the Vuelta.

Now I'm just reminded that I should have asked him about sunday night as well. I'll give a call later on.

looking for an OLN PR contact, anyone?

Someone from OLN public relations along with a 'radio partner' should catch wind of these TdF viewing event threads and have them pony up some $ for drink specials for this coming weekends festivities as evident by the link below:

inquiry made

"After posting the message in this thread, I then posted an inquiry on OLN's website as to why New York is not included in their list of cities to sponsor Tdf viewing events. I received a quick reply back and with his permission to post, here it is:

Aside from the formal events, if you really enjoy OLN's race coverage (like I do), I'd recommend visiting and dashing them off a quick reply to let them know. Indeed, OLN's TdF ratings have nearly doubled from last year's. On the other hand, there is no guarantee that Lance will do the tour next year which in turn may not be good for estimating future viewership and $elling advertisement time. Passing along a postive note of thanks will help matters more than one would think as it is representative of 'X' number of more folks. Food for thought."
