OHSAA Radio Network Set for Basketball State Tournaments
The OHSAA Radio Network will broadcast all 12 games from girls and boys basketball state tournaments. There is no charge for stations to carry network broadcasts and affiliates can have waived broadcast fees for their own regional and state tournament broadcasts. Program logs are created for each game so local stations can insert their own inventory if they desire (24 local avails per game). The network broadcasts are available through Skyview Satellite or through an online stream. Contact Tim Stried or visit http://www.ohsaa.org/news/radio
OHSAA Radio Network Tournament Tipoff Shows Begin Feb. 14
Once again the OHSAA Radio Network will produce a series of six weekly 25-minute basketball pregame shows, designed to have a statewide appeal and be used prior to stations’ pregame shows of tournament game broadcasts. Host Todd Bell sets the scene in the basketball tournaments for that week, interviews guests and looks ahead to the state tournaments. The shows will be distributed every Tuesday afternoon beginning February 14.
