NEWBERRY – Newberry's season-opening contest at in-state Division I foe The Citadel will be televised on ESPN3 and on broadcast networks in 15 television markets along the East Coast reaching over 7.7 million households.


The broadcast is being distributed for television by 7 Communications. Viewers in the Columbia market can view the game on WKTC, which can be found on channel 19 for Comcast customers in Newberry and is available over-the-air on channel 63.
