Directions

Directions from I-90:

  • Get off the Interstate at the Route 97 (Presque Isle Downs) exit and head north.
  • Stay left when you get to a fork in the road and continue until you hit East 38th Street.
  • Turn left on East 38th Street for 3 blocks until you hit the light at State Street.
  • Turn right and the studios will be on the left after three blocks.

Directions from I-79:

  • Get off the Interstate at the West 26th Street exit and travel east (right).
  • You will travel some twenty red lights (2.5 miles) eventually going down a hill to Veterans Stadium.
  • That is the State Street intersection of 26th Street. A third road converges there so when you turn right take the second right closest to the stadium going up the hill and past the school. Continue straight through the stop sign at the top of the hill (after stopping, of course).
  • The studios will be on the right after an additional five blocks.

Who do I talk to when the station does not show the game that I want?

NFL Football:

You should understand that games are determined on a regional basis by the NFL in conjunction with CBS.

NBC currently airs the national Sunday night game also determined by the network and the NFL.

The local station has little say in what is aired nationally with some rare exceptions. Erie is in the Buffalo market and those games will come first here regardless of team record or state location when circumstance dictates. If you would like further explanation:

You can write the National Football League:

280 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10017

OR

CBS Television Network:
51 West 52nd Street
New York, NY 10019


College Football

CBS is contractually obligated to air SEC football games which are determined by CBS and the Southeastern Conference. NBC is contractually obligated to air games with Notre Dame.

College Basketball

Teams for NCAA basketball games are determined by the NCAA and CBS. Those games don't usually interrupt regularly scheduled programming with the exception of games that run late and of course the NCAA Tournament in March which is shown in the place of regular programming for two consecutive weeks.
