No highlights rights? No problem. Sports reporter gets creative to recap NCAA games

Fox 17 Sports gets creative without NCAA highlights.

When the powers that be won't let you show highlights from the NCAA basketball tournament, you have to get creative.

Eric Alvarez is an award-winning, multilingual journalist with a master's degree who, fortunately, keeps his desk stocked with toys.

Tasked with talking about the Elite Eight without the use of video highlights, Alvarez had to rely on his ingenuity and a lack of supervision from his news station's sports director to tell the story.

Alvarez works for WZTV where he has been covering the Nashville community since 2010.
