EAST LANSING, Mich. – Sept. 24 –  The MHSAA’s School Broadcast Program continues to gain momentum as the first month of the new school year finishes, with participating schools producing 33 athletic events and 31 non-athletic events last week.

The school Broadcast Program, powered by PlayOn! Sports, is a platform which schools can utilize to reach members of their community about activities taking place in their buildings, providing recognition for students while at the same time giving them hands-on opportunities to gain broadcasting experience and providing schools an opportunity to realize additional revenues for their programs.

Each week, packages of highlights produced by schools in the  School Broadcast Program are featured on the MHSAA.tv website and the MHSAA YouTube Channel, and selected schools provide footage for the MHSAA’s Football Friday Overtime show on FOX Sports Detroit.

This week’s package of School Broadcast Program Highlights from the week of Sept. 16 includes the following events:

Here’s the schedule of School Broadcast Program members planning to cover Week Three football games, some of which will be available at MHSAA.tv shortly after each game’s conclusion (all games Friday):
