ESPN's Division I Softball Super Regional Coverage Generates Audience Growth

Exclusive coverage of Women's College World Series Continues

ESPN's complete coverage of the NCAA Division I Softball Championship Super Regionals (May 22 - 25) generated significant increases over last season's telecasts.

The networks' Super Regional coverage averaged 413,000 viewers, a 17 percent increase over last season (vs. 352,000 viewers).

Top Metered Markets

Tulsa was the highest-rated metered market for ESPN's Super Regional telecasts. Knoxville was second, followed by Birmingham, Nashville, Oklahoma City, Memphis, Louisville, Austin, West Palm Beach and San Antonio.

ESPN's Women's College World Series coverage from Oklahoma City - which began on Thursday, May 28, -- continues today with four elimination games.
