Eclipse Awards live on TVG


Television Games Network announced Saturday that it will provide live, four-hour coverage of the 34th annual Eclipse Awards on Jan. 24, marking the first time the awards ceremony will be telecast in its entirety.

"This won't be your standard televised awards show," said Tony Allevato, TVG's executive producer. "Our goal is to deliver a high-energy program that captures all the highs of the 2004 horse racing season."

The Eclipse Awards dinner will be held at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. The TVG coverage lasts from 6 to 10 p.m. Pacific. Nearly all of the network's on-air personalities will take part.

In recent years, TVG has partly covered the Eclipse Awards with interviews and brief takes, but this is the first time the entire event will be shown.
