(MAY 2012) – Envision Radio Networks® is excited to announce WOWO-AM/Ft. Wayne, IN as the newest affiliate of High School SportSite, the customizable HyperLocal website specializing in high school sports. With approximately 37,000 high schools and 6.8 million student athletes in the United States, the attention high school sports garners is well-deserved. To engage this massive audience and advertiser base for radio, Envision Radio Networks®, SmartSite Systems and ScoreFeeder banded together to create localized websites with High School SportSite.
“We are excited to offer North East Indiana the best local high school sport experience possible. High School SportSite was a logical choice to accomplish our goals of hyper-local coverage in our market,” said Gregg Henson, Director of Programming Operations at WOWO.
High School SportSite is a stand-alone web portal designed for radio stations that want to own high school sports in their market and drive new revenue streams from clients that want to support their community. High School SportSite captures scores and stats from all of the major high school sports for both men and women. In addition to up-to-the-minute box-scores, the hyperlocal website features the latest local sports news, Game/Athlete/Coach of the Week, team and player profiles, and photo galleries.
High School SportSite is simple to operate and requires minimal effort to maintain and update. A team of SportSite experts create a custom site for affiliates specific to their markets, allowing stations to choose the schools that they want to highlight on their customized website at a local, regional, or statewide level. High School SportSite supplies free training and unlimited support, so you don’t have to worry about the costs associated with web design, computer programming, web hosting and domain fees.
