Broadcast Delay Policy
The following procedures will be standard for all Learfield Sports network broadcasts.
1. During all network broadcasts of coach’s shows in which live calls are aired, the network will run a broadcast delay of 8 seconds. This is to ensure content and quality control on all stations on the network. Note that all shows will start and end on time.
2. During game broadcasts including the entirety of broadcast segments (pregame, in-game, halftime, postgame), the network will NOT run a broadcast delay. Network affiliates should be aware of this and run delay themselves if deemed necessary.
3. The only exception to the above policy regarding game broadcasts is any applicable “call in shows” or any game broadcast content that involves live callers. For these elements, the network will run a broadcast delay, in order to ensure content and quality control on all stations on the network.
