“Few things are as representative of a community as its high school football team,” Josh Morrison, Tribune general manager, said. “We are a community paper and our online content is as community oriented as our print edition. We have the technology available to provide this service to our readers both here and across the country. I appreciate the partnership and cooperation from the university and (broadcast and electronic media department director) Don Moore.”

Moore said around 15 students in his department film games in Kentucky and Ohio and those games are broadcast on a delay five times a week.

“Broadcasting the games gives players, fans and parents a chance to watch the games again over an extended period of time,” Moore said. “For the first time this year people can watch the games on the Tribune’s website; it’s great they are a partner. It helps with expenses and helps fund what we do.”

Moore said filming the games gives students real world experience when dealing with adverse weather and live-to-tape production. Four and sometimes five cameras film each game and students gain knowledge in camera operation, graphics, slow motion, directing, producing along with other facets.

The games will also air on Time Warner channel 25 and Armstrong on channels 4 and 100. The broadcast schedule is as follows.

• Sept. 5: Ironton at Russell

• Sept. 19: Ashland at Ironton

• Oct. 3: Fairland at Chesapeake

• Oct. 17: Fairland at Rock Hill

• Oct. 24: South Point at Coal Grove
