    Broadcast Question

    My brother and I were wondering why there always seems to be a delay one way or the other between TV broadcasts and radio. There are times I'd rather listen to Walters and Heft than the TV broadcasters, most recently during the Baylor game. Can anyone shed light on this?

    Radio
    105.1 does not use the FCC delay
    100.3 does (so 100.3 will be 5-7 seconds behind 105.1)

    TV
    Most delay of 2-3 seconds or less is due to satellite bounce
    Satellite receivers will normally be 1-2 seconds behind cable
    Any delay longer than that is satellite bounce PLUS the FCC delay

    That's good to know. I usually listen to 100.3. The TV announcers don't quite give the level of excitement John Walters does.
