Creech Quoted in BDN Article on Hockey East Playoff Game

Karlton Creech, University of Maine’s athletic director, was quoted in a Bangor Daily News article about the university’s decision to decline the offer by WABI (Channel 5) to televise UMaine’s Hockey East first-round game against Merrimack College. UMaine officials turned down the offer because they wanted to honor their agreement with their current broadcast partner, WVII ABC 7 and Fox 22, which couldn’t televise the game. Creech said, “Unfortunately, our partner [WVII-Fox] wasn’t able to produce the game for several reasons and we didn’t want to go outside of that [agreement].” He added, “The good news is there are plenty of tickets available so people can watch it in person instead of on TV.”
