Default 2020 NT media coverage

Gatekeeper signed for all chase card coverage, and we already know that Jomez us on all of the lead cards.

That leaves CCDG out of the loop. Will they be relegated to 3rd card, or FPO lead, or just regional events? BSF has been their big lead card tournament for a while.

What do you think about the PDGA and how they are doing NT coverage for next year?

Can you post a link or even better copy/paste the media plan?

I was pretty sure I heard that Jomez got exclusive lead card on Smashboxx, but can't seem to find the link to confirm now.

Gatekeeper's camera work is alright. I think they need to work on their music selection and commentary teams in my opinion. Glad there are more options out there. I love Jomez & CCDG, but they can't be everywhere...

I came here to respond that I really liked Gatekeepers coverage of the Mid America Open. Then I realized that I'm thinking of GK Productions. A little confusing with the names there.

Who else would get the live coverage?

Based on talk on Smashboxx a few weeks ago, the PDGA didn't exactly put these coverage opportunities out for open bid. Given that, I really hope they chose to hand CCDG (who does a great job, no slight on them intended) FPO coverage instead of Terry because they anticipate more NT events being covered live on Smashboxx. In the last couple years, GBO has been the only NT where live was done or even possible. With the addition of Music City and Texas States to the tour, maybe those are live capable and thus they (the PDGA) didn't want to have Terry double booked for those events.

I trust that the DGPT will continue to use Smashboxx as the backbone of its live coverage. And I also hope that they put their post-produced coverage out for bid. They should be getting paid for MPO1 coverage, which may allow them to pay for FPO1 and MPO2 (because they're not money makers whereas MPO1 is).
