Edmonson Voice Staff
Edmonson County High School Athletic Director Kyle Pierce signed an exclusive agreement with EdmonsonVoice.com on July 8th to carry live broadcasts for ECHS boys and girls basketball games and boys football games for the upcoming school year.
The brand new page, "Wildcats Live," which will be launched soon and located in the Sports link, will feature not only the broadcasts of live games, but also biographies of local broadcasters, sports schedules, and different student athelete spotlights.
"I'm very excited about our new partnership with the Edmonson Voice," Pierce said. "We feel that this will provide our athletes and coaches a tremendous avenue to promote their programs. Darren Doyle, with EdmonsonVoice.com, played here and lives here, so he definitely wants to see a quality product for these kids. He has the background and ability to produce the best broadcast possible using the most cutting edge in technology."
Football broadcaster and basketball PA man Scott Lindsey was also glad to be part of the Edmonson Voice family. "It was great to hear about the new home for Edmonson County Wildcat sports," he said. "The Edmonson Voice has established itself as a great platform for news, sports, and anything to do with the people of Edmonson County. Being a locally owned and operated media, the support for us as broadcasters, and for ECHS sports, we feel these broadcasts will be second to none.
Jamie Carnes, basketball broadcaster and co-host of the popular podcast "The View From Wildcat Alley," is also looking forward to the change. "Wyn (Caudill) and I have worked with the Edmonson Voice for a while now, as the site has provided us with an outlet for our local sports podcast and I know we're both happy to be a part of the new "Wildcats Live," he said. "ECHS Athletics' decision to team up with the local site to bring game broadcasts to the public is certainly a logical step, and I'm sure listeners will be impressed with the quality offered by game broadcasts as well as with web content they will see when they visit the "Wildcats Live" page. It will be great to be a part of the first truly home-grown sports broadcast site in Edmonson County."
Some people might wonder if an internet broadcast is as good as your old-fashioned radio broadcast. While some traditionalists don't want to try out new technology, listening to games on EdmonsonVoice.com will be super easy. You can either listen from your computer, smart phone, or tablet, all while watching the Wildcats Live page and all the latest on ECHS sports.
"Since the broadcast will be through the Internet, you can listen to the games anywhere in the world and it will be crystal clear," Piece added. "The Edmonson Voice will provide an updated webpage dedicated to the broadcasts and teams, so you can go there to catch up on any breaking news that comes about as well."
"When you go into a partnership, both sides agree to give their best to make it all go smoothly," said Pierce. " I know we're both excited to get this going and everyone will do their best to promote the kids in a first class manner."
The page will be up and running in a couple weeks and Edmonson Voice staff members are currently putting the final touches on the broadcast equipment and set up. The EdmonsonVoice.com is proud to be your new home for Wildcat Sports. Stay connected for all the latest.
