From this AM’s Cincinnati Enquirer

Fox Sports Ohio has edited the Marty Brennaman-Joe Nuxhall Reds radio audio with NBC’s video of the deciding Game 3 of the 1976 Reds-Phillies NL Championship Series.

“To see this game, and hear Marty and Joe – the local Reds radio icons – it sends chills up your spine,” said Tom Farmer, Fox Sports Ohio vice president and executive producer.

Fox Sports Ohio fabricated the special telecast out of necessity, after learning that Major League Baseball archives only had NBC video of the Oct. 12, 1976, game.

I’ll be setting the DVR for this one.

Update: I should have said when I posted this, it will be on Monday, March 2nd at 10:30 PM Eastern time on FoxSportsCincinnati.

    I would have no problem if they edited all past games using the audio of Marty and Joe.

    Agreed. I haven’t researched this much, but do we know when they plan to air it?

    Probably this Monday. All odf the rewinds are on FSN Ohio on Mondays

    How about Game 5 of the 1972 NL Championship Series with Al and Joe?

    I heard about this while listening to the game this afternoon (wasn’t it beautiful). I can’t wait. I don’t have DVR, so I’m gonna have to leave little post-it notes all around the house about it.

    Be nice if the Reds would offer streaming video of great games like that through their web site.

    I don’t get FSN Ohio, as I don’t live in the state anymore. I would LOVE to be able to work out getting a copy of this game. Wish they would make this available. Any word, guys?

    Big problem is that the Cavs game (before this) ran long, so if your DVR was set to record it, you probably didn’t get the end…
