Sec Baseball Tournament To Air Nationwide On XM Radio


Washington, D.C. and Birmingham, Ala. -- The 2007 Southeastern Conference Baseball Tournament will air nationwide on XM Satellite Radio May 23 to May 27.

This marks the first time that the SEC Baseball Tournament has aired across the U.S. on satellite radio.

The tournament will be broadcast live from Regions Park in Hoover, Ala., starting with Game 1 on May 23 at 10:00 am CT on the SEC Channel (XM Channel 199). The championship game will air May 27 at 3:00 pm CT.

Fans can hear the games on XM radios for the car, home, and portable use. XM has more than 8 million subscribers nationwide.

XM recently announced a long-term term agreement with the SEC to be the official satellite radio network of the conference.

“SEC baseball draws the greatest attendance of any conference in the country,” said SEC Commissioner Mike Slive. “For the first time, SEC fans can hear the SEC baseball tournament on XM Radio, wherever they live across the continental U.S. This is another great step for baseball in the SEC.”

“With the popularity of SEC baseball at an all-time high, the tournament is a great addition to our college sports line-up,” said Kevin Straley, XM senior vice president of news, talk, and sports programming. “Fans can hear the games on an XM radio whether they’re tailgating at the stadium or sitting at home a thousand miles away. This broadcast has special appeal to the displaced fan – the SEC fan who can’t hear the games locally, but can hear the games on an XM radio.”

Starting this fall, XM will air select SEC football and basketball games on XM channels 199, 200, and 201. XM will also air the SEC football and basketball championships, plus other SEC sports and SEC specials. SEC fans can go online to for a special offer on XM radios.
