Urbana High School Students to Broadcast Games on UPTV
Urbana Public Television is partnering with the journalism class at Urbana High School to produce another year of sports broadcasts. The students operate the cameras and provide commentary during various high school sporting events under the supervision of UPTV production staff.
The games are available live on a subscription basis through the NFHS Network. A portion of the money collected goes to support Urbana High School. Afterwards the games are available on-demand via UPTV's YouTube channel and replay every Saturday evening at 6:30PM on UPTV. The students also produced a Fall sports preview show which features UHS Senior Joey Wright interviewing coaches about their respective teams.
