Here is the press release:
CHICAGO – Starrcast creator Conrad Thompson announced on Monday his plans for making the highly anticipated Starrcast event available Live on FITE, the premium digital combat sports network. The already sold-out Starrcast is slated to take place Aug. 30-Sept. 2 at the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg outside Chicago. Starrcast is providing the stage for fans to experience in person the very best of the many pro wrestling-themed podcasts that have taken the world of wrestling by storm.
Starrcast is the convention that has developed in connection with the “All In” wrestling event set for Saturday, Sept.1 at the Sears Centre. “All In” sold out the 10,000-seat Sears Centre in 30 minutes in mid-May.
The Starrcast telecast on FITE will feature as many as 20 live podcasts scheduled for the weekend, including ones hosted by Bruce Prichard, Eric Bischoff, Tony Schiavone, Madusa and Colt Cabana. All of the podcasts on FITE will feature special guests from the wrestling world during each 1½ to 2-hour program. A complete schedule for each of the podcasts will be released shortly.
FITE, is available worldwide and its programming content features pro wrestling, boxing, MMA and kickboxing. FITE is available as a free mobile app on iOs and Android mobile devices, on the web at www.FITE.tv and on the Roku, Apple TV and Android TV boxes.
“The demand for access to Starrcast is unprecedented. Never before has an event like this sold out over three months in advance in the wrestling industry or for that fact in the fan convention business. Combined with All In, Chicago has become the place to be in the wrestling world during Labor Day weekend,” Thompson said. “Because of the demand, we have been able to work with FITE TV and make each of these podcasts available live throughout the four-day weekend. Now wrestling fans from around the world can join in on the party and hear first-hand from the stars from over the last five decades who have helped build pro wrestling into the wildly popular sensation that it is today.”
Starrcast will take place from August 30th to September 2nd!
Sir Mitch Says: Just about anybody who was involved in the Pro Wrestling industry in the 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s are set to make an appearance at the convention so it should be a phenomenal experience for fans who will be lucky enough to attend.
