In addition to having Martin Biron replace Brad May on the Broadcast, neither he or Brian Duff will travel to road games. Instead they will be broadcasting the pre and post game shows for road games from PSE Studios at New Era Field.

The post game show will now run a full 30 minutes after each road game as well.

Makes sense. Probably works out significantly cheaper production-wise & they'll be able to standardize how they're running the show.

Getting a full post game show away from home now that they should be playing 0.500 on the road. :thumbsup:

It seems like a more logical approach, really.

Read the article.. you're initial wording didn't quite say it but I think it's safe to assume the intermission show will also be those two with the Sabres throwing things out to a production assistant or Dunleavy to do the interviews?

Smart. It was cool having Duffer and May on the road but it really limited their postgame coverage. Based on what Marty said on WGR few weeks ago, they will try to make the postgame shows more educational and break games down more and doing it from Buffalo makes more sense IMO as they have all the resources available and dont have to rush and catch the plane.

One Buffalo?

Srsly: I wonder if the facilities out at OBD are the best PSE has to offer.

I believe they have a full production studio there, which is probably why.

Right. Everything at KBC is just shoehorned into a press box somewhere. The Bills are setup for the NFL, which has an inherently higher production level.

Maybe not even from the get-go but i hope eventually they make their own set for Sabres broadcasts and not just everyone use the studio Peters/Rivet and Murphy/Jones use daily.

Plus the Sabres production team and equipment has to operate out of the truck parked in back, which I think is leased.  If they have fixed production facilities at the Cap, then this becomes a no-brainer.
