Universal Sports Network, a multiplatform media destination for Olympic and endurance sports programming, plans to relocate the network’s production and broadcast operations from Southern California to Denver as of Jan. 1, 2013. The Los Angeles-based company chose Comcast Media Center (CMC) as its local partner in Colorado to provide studio production facilities, linear master control origination and distribution services; the move reportedly creates 44 new jobs. In addition, Universal Sports was awarded a grant by the State of Colorado’s Economic Development Commission as part of the Colorado Film Incentive program, designed to attract content creation and packaging in the state. Once established in Denver, Universal Sports will enjoy enhanced access to the snow sports industry…Zetron, a designer, developer and manufacturer of mission-critical communications solutions for public-safety, transportation, utilities, manufacturing, healthcare and business applications, is the newest member of the Industry Council for Emergency Response Technologies (iCERT). Says Zetron President and CEO Ellen O’Hara, “Our team, like the iCERT team, believes strongly that by working together government agencies and private business can drive efficiencies, optimize operations, and get the most for precious dollar investments.”
