Pitt Panthers have moved into their new home for basketball:
the Petersen Events Center on the University of Pittsburgh campus.
weeks before the first scheduled broadcast, I joined ESPN Regional
Television's Jeff Montoni and some of my local colleagues in a tour
of the facility. Other TV broadcast technicians may be
interested in what we found, so here are the photos.
half a century, Pitt basketball was played at Fitzgerald Field
House, shown in red on the map below. The OC parking lot and
garage, above Fitzgerald on the north side of the street, is where TV
crews have been parking. It's suggested that we continue to
park our cars up there.
TV production truck will now park in a loading dock (the large green
L) off Sutherland Drive on the west side of the Petersen Center,
which occupies the former Pitt Stadium site (the large ellipse).
