Trinity Valley Community College announced today it is joining the fast-growing Neptune GameTime family.
Neptune GameTime, based in Tyler, brings home sporting events to life with 100 percent family-friendly pregame/in-game music and messaging. It will create the college's very own "radio station" and enable the college to enhance the gameday experience for fans.
The college will have control over the music selected, as long as it meets the Neptune GameTime criteria, and messaging included in the presentation.
Currently, Neptune GameTime, which started in 2008 as an advertising/sports marketing firm under the Clear Marketing Concepts umbrella, now partners with over 600 high schools and approximately 50 colleges in 44 states.
TVCC becomes the second junior college in the state to be a member of the Neptune GameTime family, joining Tyler Junior College.
"We are always looking for ways to improve the presentation of our sports programs and events in a professional manner," said TVCC vice president of student services and athletic director Dr. Jay Kinzer. "The addition of GameTime does just that.
"We believe our fans and students will enjoy GameTime being a part of the gameday experience, whether it is at Bruce Field, Cardinal Gym or Drumgoole Field."
"We are extremely excited to be partnering with one of the great athletic programs in the nation," said Bryan Houston, team sales manager at Neptune GameTime. "We believe winners love Neptune GameTime, and there are few programs who have historically been bigger winners than TVCC."
Houston said Neptune GameTime would be up and running at TVCC in approximately two weeks.
