“Since the launch of SportsTime Ohio two years ago, our
sole vision for the Indians games has been to produce the best possible
telecasts for Tribe fans, equal or better than any production in the
league,” said SportsTime Ohio President Jim Liberatore. “Producing
all of our 2008 broadcasts in High Definition builds on that mission and allows
the Indians to become the first pro team in
Cleveland to have all games in HD.”

Rick Manning returns to the STO booth with partner Matt
Underwood and WKYC Sports Director Jim Donovan will once again join the Indians
TV broadcast team during the Tribe’s Over-the-Air broadcasts on WKYC-TV3.
