TRC, which is the operating trade name of The Rowing Channel, is a podcast network currently owned and funded by Netrendity Networks, LLC, which broadcasts live events of collegiate rowing regattas in the western United States with the addition of two major events in Gainesville, GA and Boston, MA. The channel is managed by The Rowers Consortium of Huntington Harbour, California, a cooperative of west-coast colleges, universities and rowing organizations with two major members currently located in Atlanta, GA and Cambridge, MA. Formed by volunteers from its member organizations, TRC's operation is a cooperative effort made up of content partners, rowing venues, and broadcast partners. TRC's content is currently delivered through Livestream, LLC.

Contrary to belief,[according to whom?] TRC is not affiliated with USRowing or the International Rowing Federation.

Formation[edit]

The Ferry Building - San Francisco, CA

TRC's inception was formed February 2014.[1]

A consortium including Orange Coast College was formed.[2]

In Summer 2017, for its biggest broadcasts such as the HOCR, TRC became a managing partner of the operation with Iron Will Productions in Los Angeles, California.[citation needed]

In 2018, TRC was brought in as a special consultant to the audio/video operation of the San Diego Crew Classic, whose broadcast is coordinated by USRowing. A time-brokerage agreement with the PAC-12 Network is pending to extend coverage to UC Los Angeles and Marina Del Rey.

In efforts to provide TRC's viewers with on-screen information, Netrendity Networks launched the ClockCaster Project, a self-publishing platform for sports timing results.[4] Currently in "Beta 3", the project started in Fall 2015, specifically working with rowing and canoe/kayak events.
