KTVD to Use Video Call Center for Bronco’s Call-In

Live Broadcast on Eve of Broncos-Patriots Playoff Matchup

Television industry veteran Tom Wolzien’s Video Call Center will be featured in a live sports call-in show on Denver’s KTVD this Saturday (Jan. 23), the eve of the Denver Broncos AFC Championship match with the New England Patriots.

Some pundits have touted the game as the climax of the greatest NFL quarterback rivalry in history between the Broncos' Peyton Manning and the Patriots' Tom Brady. The two have met 16 times in their careers, with Brady leading the series 11-5. However, Manning has bested the Patriots QB in two of three AFC Championship games.

VCC technology enables television shows and networks to conduct live video call-ins much like talk radio programs.  Wolzien’s video programming platform – TalkCenterAmerica – which also utilizes VCC technology, announced earlier this week the launch of its own over-the-top network.

KTVD will partner with the VCC to produce “Broncos Tonight: You Make the Call,” a one-hour opportunity for fans to voice their opinions and make predictions before the game on Jan 24. The call-in show will be broadcast over TEGNA Media’s co-owned Channel 20 from 7 p.m to 8 p.m. MST (9p.m. to 10 p.m. EST) in the Denver market and live-streamed on the web at www.9News.com. Viewers can join the call live on-air by using Skype and calling Call9 News.

Emmy winning KTVD sports anchor Drew Soicher will be directly controlling the action.  His guests will include Rod Mackey and Mike Klis from KUSA’s sports team.
