Channel 2 Will Be Live On Campus To Broadcast Game Of The Week


None - Sports Zone Friday returns to Channel 2 Friday nights for another season of high school football.

Tune in Friday nights starting at 11:20 p.m. for the best highlights, players, coaches, bands, cheerleaders and fans from high school football action across the area.

WSB-TV has some new exciting features you won't want to miss this season, too.

Every Friday night during the season, Channel 2's Sports Director Zach Klein and Atlanta Journal-Constitution Writer Chip Towers call the play by play.

"Great games and great matchups!" said Klein. "From the regular season to the first four rounds of the playoffs, it's all live on RTV."

In July, Channel 2 WSB-TV and PlayON! Sports announced a new partnership to broadcast live high school football games to fans all over north Georgia. The 15-week schedule features premiere matchups from the area's biggest games and will air on Channel 2's second digital channel, RTV at 7:30 p.m. and replay at 1 a.m. on Channel 2.

"We're thrilled to work with PlayON! Sports and add another element of coverage to our Sports Zone franchise," said Bill Hoffman, vice president and general manager for Channel 2 WSB-TV. "Our second digital channel, Channel 2.2 RTV, gives us the opportunity to broadcast local games in their entirety. Plus, we run the game again starting at 1 a.m. each Friday night on Channel 2."

"The opportunity to partner with Channel 2, the leading broadcast station in the southeast, is tremendous for both PlayON and the GHSA Network. The GHSA Network provides multi-platform coverage of Georgia high school sports to the local community, and we look forward to bringing live high school sports to Channel 2's viewers each week this fall," said David Rudolph, CEO, PlayON! Sports.

The schedule includes one regular season game during each of the first 11 weeks of coverage plus one playoff game per week during the first 4 rounds of playoffs.

"We are excited to see the continued expansion of the GHSA Network, which showcases Georgia high school athletics and athletes, and encourages fans to attend more of our events in the future," said Ralph Swearngin, Executive Director, GHSA.
