The Southeastern Conference and ESPN were scheduled to announce a television network partnership today in Atlanta. It has been postponed following the Boston Marathon tragedy.

When the SEC’s current third-tier TV rights contracts expire in 2014, ESPN will reportedly unveil an national network that will center around the SEC.

SEC commissioner Mike Slive, and ESPN President John Skipper released the following statement on the matter today.

“In light of the tragedy in Boston today, we have decided to postpone Tuesday’s SEC/ESPN press conference in Atlanta. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected by these horrible events.”
