Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott is continuing his Pac-12 media blitz on the East Coast, and it appears he's continuing to deliver the big hits. The Pac-12 network announcement was not expected to be settled for a few more days or weeks, but it appears a decision has been made about where the conference will be distributing themselves for the next decade. He will be appearing at a press conference in New York City at 2 PM PT/5 PM ET. You'll be able to watch his announcement at Pac-12.org or on the Pac-12 YouTube account.
Scott has proven that he'll go to unconventional lengths to make sure the conference will reach as many people as possible, even going so far as to include Google and Apple in talks as a potential online distribution partner to couple along with a TV company for regular cable distribution. Scott has already made sure that ESPN and FOX will grab a lion's share of the major cable exposure, and Fox is probably not going to be their partner in the distribution of the channel. Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News (who has been following the story since its inception) seems to believe that Time Warner Cable is the favorite to emerge as the Pac-12 TV network distributor, but we'll have to wait and see who emerges as the victor.
