The YES (Yankees Entertainment and Sports) Network is a New York City regional cable TV channel dedicated to broadcasting New York Yankees baseball games and New Jersey Nets basketball games, but thanks to the work by Ambrose Salmini of Salmini Films, YES has also covered open water swimming.
YES has broadcast the Manhattan Island Marathon Swim, the Brooklyn Bridge Swim, the Liberty Island Swim, the NYC Pro Swim, the Aquathlon Stars and Strips and the Little Red Lighthouse Swim. These broadcasts are posted at the NYC Swim website here.
A very good, long-time friend of open water swimming, Ambrose has filmed running, cycling, triathlon and in-line racing for more than 25 years for ABC, CBS, NBC, ESPN, TBS and PBS, including the World of Aquatics series.
Ambrose's RUNNING HD productions, including all the open water swimming events he covers, is also available throughout the USA on DirecTV, Verizon Fios Extreme HD channel, AT&T U-verse, Bright House systems and Time Warner Cable (in North and South Carolina).
