ESPN to Air Lawrence's "TitleTown USA" Segment July 5

July 2, 2008


ESPN announced Wednesday that the Lawrence feature of “TitleTown USA” will air on ESPN’s SportsCenter this Saturday, July 5. The Lawrence segment will run during SportsCenter’s morning broadcast and then again during all of the evening shows. (Check your local listings for broadcast times).

The City of Lawrence is one of 20 finalists in the running for ESPN’s “TitleTown USA.”

“TitleTown USA” is an interactive and multimedia effort to determine which city, town or municipality is America’s top championship location. A panel of judges narrowed down fan-generated nominations to 20 finalists; ultimately, online voting by fans will determine the nation’s top sports town. On ESPN’s SportsCenter, Lawrence was announced June 24 as a finalist and will go up against cities as big as New York and small as Parkersburg, West Virginia.
