One of the longest-running relationships between a sporting event and a network will continue
when the Indianapolis 500 airs on ABC for the consecutive year since 1964.   ESPN on ABC's
live, high-definition telecast from Indianapolis Motor Speedway begins with a one-hour pre-race
show at 11 a.m. (ET) and the green flag at 12 p.m.

In 2014, nearly 11 million people tuned in to the race that is broadcast worldwide.

RADIO BROADCASTS
More than 400 affiliate IMS Radio Network radio stations located throughout the United States and
Canada will broadcast live Race Day coverage of the Indianapolis 500 at 11 a.m. Sunday,  with a
pre-race show, followed by the race broadcast at 12 p.m.

SATELLITE RADIO
The radio network's Indianapolis 500 coverage also will be broadcast live on
XM Satellite Radio channel 209 and
SIRIUS channel 214

OTHER LISTENING OPTIONS
Many of the local radio stations that broadcast the IMS Radio Network offer online streams,
meaning listeners do not have to be in their broadcast range to tune in. 94.1 FM in Calcium,
New York, 94.5 FM in Birmingham, Alabama and 95.3 FM in Clinton, Missouri all offer online
streams.

Listeners can also tune in using
shortwave radios via the LeSea Broadcasting Network, and those
in the military can listen through the
American Forces Radio Network.

All IndyCar races can be listened to on the web at
IndyCar Radio

DON'T HAVE CABLE TV?

Many IndyCar races
, practices and qualifying throughout the year are broadcast on NBCSN.
Fan who do not pay for cable or satellite TV cannot watch any of it.
If this is your problem, I recommend two things:

First, go to the IndyCar.com  site.  They may be broadcasting practice live.  They will also allow you to listen
to the race broadcast.

Secondly, after the event is over, perhaps the next day, go to YouTube.com and look for a broadcast of the
event.  Note, there are scam artists on YouTube who promise to stream the races live to you.  To identify
these thieves, their YouTube video tells you to click on a link below their video.  That takes you to a site that
tries to get you to pay them for a membership. Don't be fooled.

Another method is to find a friend who subscribes to cable and get their login.  Then try to load up NBCSN
from your streaming device.  It will give you a code on your TV and tell you to go to your computer, go
to their website and verify.  If that is successful, you can watch the race live just like if you had cable.
RADIO
As part of the celebration of the 100th running of one of the world's most important and
iconic events, ESPN's signature news and information program, SportsCenter, will have a
major and significantly expanded presence at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the
week of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race.
New VOICE OF THE 500

After two years as IMS Radio Network “chief announcer”
Paul Page has decided it was time to call it quits. The
veteran announcer came back in 2014 for a second stint
in that role as he previously was the “chief announcer” for
the network from 1977-1987. From there, he’d become
the head announcer for ABCs IndyCar coverage before
moving into the same role on the NHRA side.

But, IndyCar got him back in 2014 which was a very
popular move. Unfortunately, he didn’t want to stay long as
he decided last year was it.

The IMS Radio Network hired
Mark Jaynes in that role
as the Beech Grove, Indiana resident becomes the sixth
“voice of the 500.”

The 52-year old joined the network in 1996 and has been
a regular ever since. He was most recently the lead
announcer for all the Indy Lights races and served on the
Verizon IndyCar Series broadcast in a fill-in role in the
booth on practice and/or qualifying days.

Joining Jaynes on the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series
broadcasts broadcasts will be Davey Hamilton who
serves as the driver analyst, Jake Query, Nick Yeoman,
Michael Young, Dave Furst, Katie Hargitt and Rob
Howden.
