OVC to launch new blog this week
The Ohio Valley Conference has come up with a hip new social-media savvy blog.
The name of the blog will be OVCextra and an official announcement of the launch will come this week.
Some of the items of local interest include:
• Belmont men’s basketball coach Rick Byrd, an avid golfer, providing a list of his 10 all-time favorite courses.
• A Q&A with Phillip Brown, a drum major for Tennessee State’s Aristocrat of Bands.
• Links to national media coverage OVC athletes receive.
• Streaming OVC Twitter and Instagram feeds.
Fans will be able to submit photos, videos, ideas for topics and other content to the blog.
OVC Commissioner Beth DeBauche calls the blog an example of “forward-thinking.”
