News Channel Nebraska to Broadcast Six-Man Football State Championship
NORFOLK – News Channel Nebraska announced today that it will televise the Nebraska Schools Activities Association (NSAA) Class D6 State Football Championship live from Kearney’s Ron and Carol Cope Stadium on Friday, Nov. 22nd.
Live coverage of the game, featuring Harvard and McCool Junction, will be another first for the locally-owned network that reaches more than 550,000 homes across the state.
“With the six-man state championship not being covered live on TV last year, NCN saw a real opportunity,” said Mike Flood, Founder and Owner of News Channel Nebraska. “We are looking forward to showcasing the game of six-man football to the entire state.”
The broadcast will mark the 42nd high school football game that News Channel Nebraska has televised this season. Live coverage of the D6 Championship is set to begin at 6:40 PM.
The game will be available to those living in Harvard and McCool Junction on Zito channel 72. McCool Junction residents who have Spectrum can watch the game on channels 98 or 1233.
Fans will be able to watch the game online with an NFHS Network subscription.
NCN has proven to be the statewide leader when it comes to multi-camera sports broadcasts. The network traditionally covers more than 250 events a year and has carried more than 1,000 high school events in its four years on the air.
