Point Spread Media, producers of the radio show Ringside Boxing Action, have announced a revised broadcast schedule for the debut episode of the weekly boxing radio show. The launch of the show has been moved to the Fall, due largely to the effects of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

Ringside Boxing Action, a one-hour weekly radio program produced by Las Vegas-based Point Spread Media and hosted by internationally acclaimed broadcast commentator Al Bernstein, has released a revision to it's broadcast schedule. Producers of the show have postponed the debut episode until the Fall, citing a trickle-down effect from COVID-19 as a primary factor in the decision.

Ringside Boxing Action airs each Saturday, leading into the time that televised boxing begins. Hosted by internationally recognized boxing analyst and broadcast commentator, Al Bernstein, Ringside Boxing Action features an all-star lineup of some of the most influential names in boxing. The show is broadcast from Las Vegas, and syndicated to radio stations in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City.

The two largest markets for the weekly boxing radio show, New York and Los Angeles, have been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Los Angeles County is currently the most severely impacted community in the country, and while New York City is currently in Phase 3 of reopening, the boxing community in the city has been completely left out of this transition.

This show isn't just about showcasing interviews with famous fighters,” said Jerry Garner, Chief Executive of Point Spread Media, “it's about energizing and interacting with local boxing communities, and that can't be accomplished while businesses remain shuttered.”

Point Spread Media has announced that the launch of the Ringside Boxing Action radio show will be postponed until the Fall, with hopes that the additional time will allow more local communities to begin to recover from the current situation. The show is tentatively set for a launch on Saturday, September 12, 2020, although a more official launch date will come in a later announcement.

During the delay, Point Spread Media will continue working towards expanding the syndication of the show into additional markets. Discussions are currently taking place with radio ownership groups across the United States and Canada.

The company is also working with boxing fans and local business owners in these communities to organize listening parties and other activities to bring an additional layer of fan engagement to the show. Additional details will be released in the coming weeks.
