We will see how it goes. I'm more of a fan of the traditional tv commentators who follow more of what is going on in the tv pictures.

wow, didn't see that coming. Will be great to have him back on the radio side of things. Also interested to hear how McNish does in this role.

Well, if MotorsTV is stepping in, and there is more money in TV than in radio .... i guess Mr. Hindhaugh is getting squeezed out.

So ... as the comments on the article note, even fewer people will pay for the lame WEC stream now .....

I think the quality of the broadcast from IMSA TV at VIR which you can see on Youtube IMSAOfficial was exceptional. They have been great. But I think this races in especially good. I think it was a combination of things. 1)VIR lends itself with its scenic landscaping 2)all green flag racing 3)all GT racing. 4)Owen Trinkler was a great addition 5)Seeing all of the pre race festivities 6)Very good helicopter shots from the air but not overdone.

Ditching the fox stream for the IMSA radio/TV stream for the race replays which they did starting in the middle of 2016 was one of the best moves the IMSA organization has made since the merger in terms of media/broadcasting.

Agreed, the coverage is amazing now. I do remember the first days of the merger being painful. When a commentator calls the Mazda the first LMP diesel it get's a little awkward.

A lot of press in the USA about ESPN Monday Night football sideline reporter Sergio Dipp's stumbling and bumbling live on the air.

I think that this is a good time to mention that this is nothing compared to the calamity that was Tora Kagi's pit reporting skills during in the American Le Mans series I believe it was in 2012 and/or 2013. The guy could say nothing more than they are changing tires and fueling the car.

OH GOD! I remember that guy! His name was Taro Koki by the way and he came from a drifting background...bad idea.

I distinctly remember one of his silver dollar moments from Sebring in 2013. At one point, he buzzed the booth during the race to ask why there were some cars running on track that had matching livieres.... I also clearly remember Hindy's (bless him) immediate response being along the lines of "Thats a great question, Taro!", although I am sure we can all guess what he was really thinking in that moment.
