10 questions with Longhorn Network’s Dave Brown
ESPN has succeeded because of its outside-the-box programming and production. Does the Longhorn Network present you with a blank canvas? There is great news in that we have a lot of programming time to fill. It???s a great opportunity for us. It goes back to covering The University like never before. We have wired this campus, through the great help of The University of Texas, with a ton of fiber to all the venues, and we???ll be incredibly flexible and be able to take advantage of opportunities if they arise. During the summer, when things are quiet, I???d like to bring back the superstars from all the teams and just have a lot of fun — run 800 meters against each other, shoot 3???s against each other, bowl against each other. Just have a lot of fun, and of course, we???ll cover all the games and serious stuff, too.
“We have wired this campus, through the great help of The University of Texas, with a ton of fiber to all the venues.” Yep, that was designed by me.
