Brian Till and Jamie Howe will join IMSA Radio’s broadcast team at selected events throughout the 2019 season, as part of an expanded lineup of on-air talent for Radio Show Limited’s IMSA coverage.
Till and Howe, who were part of FOX Sports’ lineup of the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, join IMSA Radio’s returning roster of John Hindhaugh, Jeremy Shaw and Shea Adam, who will continue to anchor the network’s extensive on-site coverage.
While it will mark Till’s debut with RSL, Howe got her professional start as a pit reporter for IMSA Radio’s precursor, the American Le Mans Series Radio Web, prior to stints with SPEED TV, ESPN and FOX Sports.
Details of the events Till and Howe will be engaged in will be released at a later date, although they are expected to join the team for the season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona, alongside RSL regulars Jonny Palmer and Joe Bradley.
“I’m delighted that Jamie and Brian are joining the IMSA Radio team,” said RSL managing director and IMSA Radio project director Eve Hewitt. “They are both part of the endurance racing community.
“For Jamie it really is like coming home. For several years we have talked about Jamie coming to Le Mans with us, but it’s never quite worked out. She knows radio, she knows our style and what to expect and she will fit right in.
“Of course Brian Till needs no introduction. His work speaks for itself, but being a part of our team is more than that.
“Our presenter John Hindhaugh worked with Brian in the TV booth a few years ago and was very complimentary about how Brian helped him understand TV.
“Brian is a total professional and he is a great addition to the team.”
The announcement follows confirmation of NBC Sports’ booth lineup of Leigh Diffey, Calvin Fish and AJ Allmendinger for the network’s first year of IMSA coverage.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the lineup of storytellers we will have in 2019,” said IMSA Vice President, Marketing David Pettit.
“Without question, NBC Sports is bringing a fresh approach to IMSA television with a great mix of experience in the booth.
“Likewise, IMSA Radio – which continues to be immensely popular with our fans and continues to deliver increased audiences – will get even better with the addition of Brian to the already talented team.”
IMSA Radio covers five IMSA-sanctioned series: the WeatherTech Championship, IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, IMSA Prototype Challenge, Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama and Lamborghini Super Trofeo.
All WeatherTech Championship sessions will be covered live and without geoblock, with a minimum of final practice, qualifying and races for the other series.
Its first race broadcast of the season happens Saturday with the IPC three-hour Scouts of America race at Daytona.
