Our Skyview Networks partnership has enabled us to expand the Florida Panthers Radio Network, increasing the Panthers brand from Key West to Vero Beach, in both English and Spanish, ensuring precise radio sponsor placement, activation and exposure.

National Hockey League’s (NHL) Florida Panthers announced today a new multi-year partnership with Skyview Networks to serve as official radio network provider. Skyview, an integrated broadcast solutions company, will provide its satellite distribution, AdView Inventory Management application and Live Read database. With Skyview, the franchise will distribute its broadcasts to a network of affiliates for the first time. The partnership aims to streamline its broadcasts by using one platform, AdView Inventory Management, to schedule and track all advertisers in its English and Spanish play-by-play broadcasts.

“Our Skyview Networks partnership has enabled us to expand the Florida Panthers Radio Network, increasing the Panthers brand from Key West to Vero Beach, in both English and Spanish, ensuring precise radio sponsor placement, activation and exposure,” said Randy Moller, vice president broadcasting, for the Florida Panthers.

The franchise will utilize Skyview’s AdView Inventory Management for its English and Spanish language broadcasts. The application is web-based, allowing real time access to commercial logs from anywhere an Internet connection is available. Now, the franchise will be able to manage all play-by-play commercial programming in one complete system. Other features include automatic system updates, auto-rotation of advertisers for contract fulfillment, and immediate generation of affidavits, quickening the receivables process.

“We are proud the Panthers chose Skyview when they decided to expand their broadcast to a network of affiliates,” said Matt Stys, vice president business development for Skyview Networks. “We are pleased to call the Panthers a partner and believe our package of services will provide a high quality broadcast to its network affiliates and a streamlined approach to inventory management.”

Also included in the agreement, Skyview will provide satellite distribution to the first Panthers radio network, for both English and Spanish broadcasts. Skyview’s advanced distribution platform provides the franchise a reliable, high quality broadcast feed.
