Houston, We Have a Sportscaster


Fox Sports Net and Time Warner Cable’s Houston system have teamed up on a promotion tied into the Major League Baseball John Hancock All-Star FanFest in Houston.

The FanFest is being held July 8-13 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in conjunction with MLB’s All-Star Game July 13 at Houston’s Minute Maid Park, home of the league’s Astros.

Visitors to the FanFest’s FSN Broadcast Studio -- a replica of the network’s Southwest Sports Report anchor desk -- will have a chance to sit on the set, use a teleprompter to call their own two- to three-minute sportscast and take home a tape of their broadcast.

Southwest Sports Report anchors will be at the FanFest broadcast studio throughout the event offering tips on how to call a sportscast, the network said.
