A Couple High School Notes

As Your Tri-State Media Watcher returns from his high school alma mater's football game, here's a couple notes about High School Football in Northern Kentucky:

Quickie 1 - Radio Broadcast: There is a radio broadcast of games this year.

We were at the Boone County/Scott County game tonight, and heard that the game would be broadcast on 1160 AM WQRT/Florence.

We couldn't tune in the game, but we do believe it.

But nowhere to be found right now? The station that had been the local broadcast partner for games, WNKR-FM 106.7/Dry Ridge.

We assume this was because the Florence Freedom are finishing up their Frontier Baseball League season this weekend, and that WNKR will do future games.

But if WQRT is along for the full season ride, then the Friday schedule should look something close to this:

Rusty Humphries (Continuation of Thursday's show) 12:00 AM - 1:00 AM
Phil Hendrie 1:00 AM - 4:00 AM
Jerry Doyle 4:00 AM - 6:00 AM
America's Morning News 6:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Laura Ingraham 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Neal Boortz 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Dave Ramsey 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Dr. Laura 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
High School Game of the Week 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Rusty Humphries 10:00 PM - 1:00 AM Saturday

We'll endeavor to get hold of someone at WQRT about it. But...suffice to say, we're not sure whether the game broadcast tonight, is not the only one they'll carry, or are they along for the full season...and specifically for Boone County Football when the Rebels are playing somewhere in town.

Quickie 2 - TV: Of course, Fox Sports Ohio will continue to broadcast their Game of the Week on Thursday nights.

But, ICN 6 (Insight Cable's local channel) joins the party next week. Their first game is Covington Catholic taking on Dixie Heights on Friday, Sept. 11...
