AtlantaSoccerNews.Net is ‘Talkin’ Fútbol’ during the World Cup!
AtlantaSoccerNews.Net creator and managing editor Wendy Parker (that’s me) will appear on Comcast Sports Southeast during the World Cup to discuss soccer’s biggest event and the impact of the sport here in Atlanta, the Southeast and the United States.
The preview segment will air at 6 and 10 p.m. ET Wednesday (that’s tonight) on CSS’ signature “Sports Nite” program with host Bob Neal. Starting next week, the segments will air every Friday, also at 6 and 10 p.m., through the end of the World Cup.
Many of you in Atlanta know Neal as a veteran announcer who’s called many college and pro sports, but he’s also a big soccer aficionado. He was the play-by-play man for the second edition of the North American Soccer League’s Atlanta Chiefs when they were owned by Ted Turner. Neal also called games from the 1990 World Cup in Italy for TNT, when he was paired with former Atlanta Falcons placekicker Mick Luckhurst.
Our first program focuses heavily on the U.S. opener on Saturday against England, the health of American defender (and former Clemson standout) Oguchi Onyewu, the importance of Landon Donovan and discussion about the World Cup favorites.
So stay tuned all through the World Cup and let your soccer-loving friends know where to watch too!
