According to the NBA broadcaster, TNT will call games from a studio in Atlanta
NBA broadcaster Kevin Harlan has announced that the TNT announcement crew is likely to call games from the network’s Atlanta studio when the league brings their show to Orlando, Florida next month.
Last week, the NBA Board of Governors and the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) approved Continue with the proposed restart of 22 teams in a bubble at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at that location.
Harlan outlined TNT’s plan to interview the games with SirusXM NBA radio (H / T. The athlete).
“What I’ve heard from the people at TNT is that we’ll be in the Atlanta studios and put them as close as possible to a broadcast table as if we had a yard.” I expect there will be noise from crowds in our headsets.
“I think for the viewer I don’t think it will be dramatically different. Now you won’t have any dishes that you know from Milwaukee, Los Angeles or Boston. So this will be a bit strange. But if we are all just there sitting and watching, I don’t know that we’ll really notice a big difference, the only thing I’ve heard is that until the conference finale, there would be no consideration that the broadcasters were in this environment could be the first time that an actual broadcaster is on-site, hosting a conference finale and of course the NBA final. ”
Not as far-fetched as NBA fans might think
Regardless of what NBA fans are used to, the above plan is not too strange as American crews have called various sporting events from around the world from studios in the United States.
There could be some camera operations inside the bladder, but this could also be done remotely if needed.
The NBA has not yet made any announcement regarding media functionality in Orlando, but it is safe to assume that they do not want more press representatives than is strictly necessary.
