There will be a pair of familiar voices returning to do Piqua football home games this season for Indian Nation Station, the local access channel.
Longtime WPTW broadcasters Duane Bachman and Bob Luby will be back working together to do the five Piqua home games this fall on a tape-delay basis.
“It is great to have Duane (Bachman) and Bob (Luby) back calling games for the Indian Nation,” Piqua athletic director Chip Hare. “They have brought a lot of joy to Indian fans over the years and I am the Indian Nation will be happy to hear them calling games again.”
Channel 5, now known as Indian Nation Station, has moved from Edison to Piqua High School, making the broadcast of football games a possibility.
“We still haven’t worked out the final schedule (of when the games will be broadcast),” Hare said. “We hope to have them on the air by the following Monday for sure. We would like to be able to do it as soon as the weekend, but we have to figure out from a logistics and technology standpoint if that is possible. We are excited to be able to do this for the Indian Nation.”
As of now, the games will air at 5:30 p.m. on Mondays, preceded by the pre-game show at 5 p.m.
That will begin this Monday, with the replay of Friday’s Trotwood-Madison gaame.
