That’s how Nick Stevens, a high school football insider, characterized what Capitol Broadcasting’s NBC affiliate WRAL is doing on Friday nights during football season in Raleigh, N.C. (DMA 24), in a Market Share column from last year about HighSchoolOT LIVE.
That post, about how WRAL and Capitol is revolutionizing how high school football games are covered, also had this quote from John Conway, WRAL.com’s general manager at CBC New Media Group.
“We are going to offer an unprecedented amount of live video for fans of high school football. I am not aware of any other media company trying to offer as much live video coverage of high school football.”
HighSchoolOT LIVE is a weekly, live-streamed show providing in-game updates from multiple football games across North Carolina.
HighSchoolOT LIVE includes an in-studio show that takes viewers through six to eight area high school football games with live, instant updates complete with graphics, play-by-play and color commentary.
Viewers also have the option to watch the live feeds of any of the 6-8 chosen games on HighSchoolOT.com, the mobile apps and WRAL OTT apps.
Audio from the show will be streamed live on WCLY-FM, 95.7 The Ticket.
“We wanted to learn the best way to produce and deliver live game coverage for a web and mobile audience,” said John Conway, WRAL.com’s general manager at CBC’s New Media Group
“The end product exceeded our expectations.”
