IMSA: Rolex 24 Heralds New Broadcasting Moves

As NBC Sports really is becoming our Motorsports Network...

This year's 57th running of the Rolex 24 denotes the beginning of IMSA's newest television partner NBC Sports, (NBCSN) who've inked a six year contract and replace FOX.

As the interesting part for this year's TV Broadcast Booth will be thee Dinger', nee A.J. Allmendinger, who's also contesting this year's Rolex 24 for his longtime friend Michael Shank, aboard the Meyer Shank Racing's #86 Acura NSX GT3 Evo.

Meanwhile, past Broadcasters Brian Till and Jamie Howe have joined IMSA Radio, alongside it's KURR-RACK' Broadcasting Troupe led by Der Heindenmeir', nee John Hindhaugh, who's arguably my Numero Uno Announcer!

And Duh Hits just Keep Ah-comin' as 'Ol Casey Kasem would say. As the NBC Sports Network will provide substantial coverage of IMSA's Support Series by airing 28 such races in 2019.

Meanwhile, NBC Sports has announced that Leigh Diffey, Calvin Fish and A.J. Allmendinger will make up their Broadcast Booth Announce Crew, which will make it very difficult for me to decide who to listen to during this year's 24 Hours of Daytona - Since I'm also a Huge Diffey Fan, Calvin Fish is very bright and if Allmendinger's anything like I've heard him on numerous Speed Freaks interviews, will be a pleasure to listen to.

As NBC Sports will utilize a Mondo' 17 Staff members comprising of IndyCar, RASSCAR'; Err, Uhm NASCAR and its new IMSA Announce crews.

As a "Tune-up" for All of Thar Announcers, Pitlane Reporters and Analysts, including the overly controversial Pt', nee Paul Tracy. With the aforementioned diffey and "Professor B," aka Jon Beekhuis along with Kevin Lee patrolling the Pits.

As hopefully thee Thrill from The West Hill, 'Ol Sugar Ray Tracy, or simply PT' can just stick to his fine In-booth Commentary skills, and keep away from stupidly torching others via Social Media...

Although as I've inferred above, I really, really like listening to John Hindhaugh via Zed Internetz' - which presumably I'll do once again this year for several Hours, since it's been at least two months since listening/watching any motor racing.
