LOS ANGELES and DENVER -- Universal Sports Network announced today that it will relocate the network’s production and broadcast operations from Southern California to Denver, Colorado in the new year. The Los Angeles-based company has selected Comcast Media Center (CMC) as its local partner in Colorado to provide studio production facilities, linear master control origination and distribution services. Universal Sports, the premier multi-platform media destination for Olympic and endurance sports programming, will be fully operational at the CMC on January 1, 2013.

The move to Denver, which will create 44 new jobs, will allow Universal Sports to tap into the expertise CMC has acquired through the technical innovations it has developed and implemented for other national and regional sports networks, including NHL Network, iN DEMAND and PAC-12 Networks. An industry-leading provider for nearly 20 years, CMC specializes in live sports origination, managing more than 20,000 HD, SD, and 3D live and recorded events a year.

In addition, Universal Sports has been awarded a grant by the State of Colorado’s Economic Development Commission as part of the Colorado Film Incentive program, which is 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, whose elite competitions feature prominently in the network’s programming schedule, and the many Colorado-based national governing bodies for Olympic sports with which the channel has programming and marketing partnerships.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
