Plan to watch the Redbird football and basketball teams in action this season on Comcast SportsNet Chicago? Keep an eye out during the commercial breaks.

Illinois State is debuting seven new 30-second TV spots this fall and winter, each highlighting the students, faculty, and programs in its six academic colleges and Milner Library. The TV spots were filmed on campus in October by Sym Labs, in collaboration with University Marketing and Communications and several campus partners.

The spots will air during Illinois State-produced live sports telecasts on Comcast SportsNet Chicago (CSN Chicago). At this time, scheduled broadcast include: football Saturday, November 2, at 1 p.m.; men’s basketball November 8 and 12, December 7 and 22, January 18 and one additional game TBD, likely in February; and women’s basketball on January 12 and January 31.
