On The Beat Industry News In Brief

The NCAA and Indianapolis-based Creative Street Entertainment collaborated on a newly released documentary: “The Long Home Run—Omaha and the College World Series.”

The one-hour documentary tells the story of the history of baseball’s College World Series and how the city of Omaha, Neb., has embraced the game as the host site for over 60 years.

Narrated by Academy Award winner Kevin Costner, the documentary debuted for a national television audience June 3 on ESPNU. The video is also for sale on the NCAA’s website.

“Student-athletes, coaches, fans and those behind the scenes who make it all happen are the core of the unique bond between Omaha and the College World Series,” said Greg Weitekamp, NCAA director of broadcasting.

Interviews with former student-athletes, coaches, media and College World Series and NCAA representatives detail the history and memories that have come from the event known as The Greatest Show on Dirt.

The documentary will also serve as one of the celebrations of Rosenblatt Stadium, as the NCAA 2010 College World Series will mark the final time the event will be held in the historic venue.

Creative Street, which produces non-fiction entertainment programs for the cable and broadcast television markets, was honored with a 2007 Emmy Award for the documentary “Vietnam Nurses with Dana Delany.”

  3. "This was a very localized, Indiana issue," he said. As in, Indiana failed to expand Medicaid to cover its poor citizens resulting in the loss of essential medical services, including this EMS company. Well done, Indiana GOP. Here are the real death panels: GOP state governments who refuse to expand Medicaid for political reasons.

  4. In the "one for all, all for none" socialist doctrine the sick die...this plus obama"care" equates to caucasian genocide plus pushed flight to cities thus further eroding the conservative base and the continualed spiral toward complete liberal/progressive/marxist America.

  5. There is a simple reason why WISH is not reporting on this story. LIN has others stations in different markets that are affiliated with CBS. Reporting about CBS blindsiding WISH/LIN due to CBS's greed and bullying tatics would risk any future negoations LIN will have with CBS in other markets.
