91.5FM delivers LIVE outside broadcast.Phuket News Friday, December 10th, 2010
Sunday, December 5 marked a huge day for 91.5FM – Phuket Island Radio as we delivered our first ever live broadcast of a sporting event and what an event to start with.
Laguna Phuket was the location for the inaugural Ironman 70.3 Asia-Pacific Championship Triathlon – an event which attracted more than 740 athletes from 51 countries around the globe including a field of more than 40 professionals all competing for the honour to be crowned the first ever Ironman 70.3 Asia-Pacific champion.
From 9am we picked up the action and continued to bring it live from ‘trackside’ for three and a half hours as we watched the climax to the professional races which were won by the US’ Tim O’Donnell and Caroline Steffan of Switzerland.
While the athletes were out on the course, DJ Doris and Danny O delivered statistics, race updates and more and were on hand to interview several notable spectators who had gathered at the Y-junction at Laguna Beach Resort to watch the race unfold.
As the race drew to a close, MC Whit Raymond took control to announce athletes across the finish line before they joined Danny O for an interview ahead of the medal ceremony for the first three finishers.
