THE SOUTH BEND TRIBUNE, FRIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 14, 1951. 19. Irish Network Covers 38 Stations. Starting Sept 29, the green of th Irish will be added to the red and blue color scheme of Ameri can radio networks. At the moment 38 broadcasting stations ( have signed contracts making them members of the Irish Football network. They will broadcast play-by- play-descriptions of -nine . o( the Universi ty of ZCotre Dam e's ; 10 football games. JOB boland. The announcing will be handled by Joe Boland. sports director of WSBT, The Tribune's broadcasting station. And to Boland and WSBT go top honors for planning and building the network. In his office, Boland has a map ef the United States. Multicolored pins in the map denote the locations of the network's outlets. The Notre Dame-conscious stations 'stretch from St. Paul, V y f- i i i I : .-' -. Minnv on the north to Miami, Fla.. and New Orleans. La., on the I south, and from Boston on the least to. St. Louis, Mo., on the west. Other Stations Want Show, Loudspeakers in huge New jYork city and tiny Columbus, ind., will blare tnis rail wiui me same word ' picture of Irish football that South Bend, residents will hear via WSBT. Boland said the network is not yet a closed corporation. A dozen other stations are clamoring for the Saturday , afternoon . show. Technical problems may keep some out of the network, but it is a safe bet that by the time the Irish open against Indiana Sept. 29 the football network will have more than 38 outlets. On an informal basis the net work has been in operation since 1947. But it had no same and no real organization. The 10 stations who carried the games supplied everything but. the actual broadcast production. They made their own arrangements and obtained their own ' releases from the ' universities who played against Notre Dame. By 1950, this informal, coopera-1 tive network had 21 member stations. Boland accounts for this unencouraged growth by what he calls, "the almost J unbelievable 'popularity rot Notre Dame In every section of the nation." Boland decided to supply stations with what they wanted. He coined the name of his new network and sent out literature to broadcasters in the northeastern part of. the country. The replies were almost "staggering,' Boland said. Advertising salesmen reported that time buyers were eager to sponsor the game broadcasts. Car dealers, banks. Insurance companies ' and manufactur e r s signed for the show. - And the smaller stations managed to get several sponsors to share the cost of the broadcast, Columbus, for instance, signed live sponsors. - Many Are Refused Show. . Boland reported that many sta tiona wanted to carry the snow, but were so far removed from the chosen network' area that they had to be refused. Many, of these stations are on the Pacific coast Boland is certain that In a few vears the network will be on an ocean 'to ocean oasis. T But we want to move cautiously," he said. "We want to grow from the center and in that way we can give our member stations the best possible service." v The actual broadcasts will be carried by leased telephone wires, the same way all network shows are sent from station to station. Announcer Boland will selected cues into his broadcast at predetermined times. . When the cue is heard, each of the 38 stations will cut away from the network and a Jocal announcer will deliver the commercial. If the local station makes the request, stadium crowd noises 'will be piped to them so the local .announcer will have" a football style background for his . words. In addition to the crowd noises, the Irish Football network will supply everything needed by its member, stations to broadcast the 10 games.' It. will take care of contracts with the various universities and all the legal , and technical problems that come up in a. big-time broadcast One of the problems was the toss; Oct 5 game with Detroit univer sity at Detroit Mich. The game will be played Friday night, a time when many stations in the network will not be able to handle the show. But after a bit of consideration, Boland decided to offer the Detroit game, come what may. And are fXXJTRED BYPEXCH.

Before long, Boland hopes to make a special offering of this game and he ex pects the same ready response. Boland is impressed by the prospects of the new network.
