KANSAS CITY (August 8, 2012) – Time Warner Cable Metro Sports today announced its 2012 high school football broadcast schedule, featuring two live game broadcasts each week and many games in high-definition.
Each week this fall Metro Sports will air the “Time Warner Cable High School Showcase presented by Hy-Vee” on Thursday evenings and the “Hy-Vee High School Game of the Week” on Friday nights.
All games will be broadcast live on Metro Sports, and the majority will also be broadcast in high-definition. The first Hy-Vee High School Game of the Week will be a matchup between Fort Osage and Park Hill South on Friday, Aug. 24.
“We absolutely can’t wait for the 2012 high school football season to kick off,” said Chris Huwe, TWC Metro Sports general manager. “We are proud to be Kansas City’s high school sports leader, and this year’s schedule is evidence of the commitment we continue to make to provide our viewers with the most high school football coverage of anyone in Kansas City.”
A wide variety of teams are featured in Metro Sports’ high school football broadcast schedule, and in order to guarantee exposure for a large number of Kansas City area teams, no school is scheduled to appear more than twice.
The 2012 high school football broadcast schedule will also “flex” late in the season to make sure Metro Sports viewers are provided with the best possible matchups as the regular season nears its end.
Kevin Wike will continue to handle the play-by-play duties for the Hy-Vee High School Game of the Week in 2012, while the Time Warner Cable High School Showcase presented by Hy-Vee will feature Metro Sports personalities, along with a variety of analysts.
Metro Sports is available throughout the Kansas City area on Time Warner Cable (channel 30 and 310 and in HD on 1310), Comcast (channel 258) and Knology in Lawrence (channel 37).
