TDR TV is a 30-minute weekly TV show that covers all aspects of amateur wrestling in the U.S. Host Scott Casber updates viewers on the latest developments in high school, college and international wrestling, conducts insightful interviews with the sport's top wrestlers and coaches, and shares his passion for the "oldest and greatest sport" in a fun, fast-paced show. TDR TV is already available on the Mediacom cable TV system serving six Midwestern states, and can be viewed online at www.TakedownRadio.com and at over thirty other affiliated amateur wrestling websites.

"Central New York is a hotbed for championship wrestling on both the high school and collegiate levels" said Time Warner Cable Sports Director Doug Logan. "We are pleased to be adding Takedown Wrestling Media's news program, TDR TV, for all of our subscribers who appreciate this outstanding and demanding sport."

Casber, founder of Takedown Wrestling Media, said, "This is an important step forward for the athletes, coaches and fans of wrestling across the country. Time Warner Sports is a respected name around the country. They understand wrestling fans and the need for promotion of the sport in order to continue its positive growth. This is a special opportunity to partner with Time Warner Cable in the distribution of TDR TV. We understand the responsibility we have in this undertaking and will do our best to present wrestling in a positive manner."

"Time Warner Sports will present our weekly TV program throughout the prime wrestling hotbeds in the eastern U.S., where collegiate wrestling got its start more than a century ago, and is home to a number of great programs at Cornell, Buffalo and Binghamton" said Casber. "In addition, we'll be now seen in the part of the country that features some of the best high school wrestling programs in the nation."
