"Shreveport/Bossier broadcastings for prep football"
Aug-20-13, 10:33 PM (CST)
I am not understanding on why Shreveport/Bossier City are not working on trying to get professional broadcasters for schools like Huntington, Woodlawn, Southwood, Bossier, Benton, Parkway, BTW, Green Oaks, and Fair Park for football games. I know that we have broadcasters for Calvary, Byrd, Captain Shreve, and Airline but you would think that Shreveport radio stations would let people like myself broadcast games for other high schools that doesn't get to be on the air unless they are playing against the 4 schools that I just mentioned. Is it because of revenue marketings that Shreveport/Bossier having trouble with than schools like in the Monroe, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Alexandria, Baton Rouge and New Orleans regions?

I have been broadcasting prep football in the past most notably Mansfield, Alief Taylor, Alief Elsik and some of Katy football. I would think that some of the radio stations especially AM radios like 1300 am The Gospel, 710 KEEL or Super Talk 1340 would give some people shots to broadcast for the season. Maybe it is me but I really wish that Shreveport would be like Dallas, Houston, and especially East Texas to have a stronger brand to broadcast football this fall.

I am just curious because I really do not understand on why it is hard to get a broadcasting chance in the Northwest Louisiana areas of Shreveport and Bossier City instead of having to travel to the greater Houston or Dallas areas to broadcast games.

Money is the problem. Everybody wants it and nobody has it.

I think the radio stations are hard pressed to put someone in a booth to broadcast because they don't want to pay the money for it. They don't want to pay the air person and they don't want to pay the person back at the station required in most cases. Many of the stations around Shreveport seem to be computer operated. I can't say for sure as I just don't turn the radio on much anymore since I have Sirius and a USB port in my car.


Someone has to pay for it. Advertisers have to be had and I just don't think those dollars are really there. Schools are concerned that more people tuning in means less butts in the seats.

It used to frustrate me to no end that Evangel has nothing on the internet, when I was living in Austin. i wanted to hear the ECA games and that didn't happen often. Since I've moved back to Shreveport, it doesnt matter because I go to all the games now.

In Austin, I understood why there weren't more teams getting on the radio as there was a 5A team around every corner. The big name teams over there are all on the radio.

KEEL probably makes more money on regular programming than what they will make on a HS football game. The rest of those, I can't guess why they wouldn't broadcast unless it's just a dollars thing.

We remote control our station, there's no one there. It's pretty unique. I haven't seen anybody else broadcast like we do. Technology is at a point where it can be financially possible. Over here on NELA nearly every station has a game on the air on Friday nites.

i do wonder why it seems like the only schools with their own broadcasts are rummel and jesuit in the NOLA area on 990 AM and 88.3 FM. i used to hear Salmen on 1560 AM in Slidell but i haven't in years

maybe some stations get better ratings with gospel shows and whatnot over some crappy team's game

As far as my stations. Tim Fletcher will NOW be doing a local high school football live update show on Friday nights during the games on 710 KEEL and 1130 KWKH (The tiger) carries Byrd games.

KWKH will be doing a game of the week on Thursday nights and Friday nights when Byrd plays on Thursday.

Harlemheat: There are a couple other stations that you could broadcast on. You would just have to secure the station get permission from the schools, pay your weekly on-air fee to the station, sell sponsorships, collect from the sponsors, ect! You know the drill. From experience I spent 10-15 hours a week on all that and research you need to do for each game. I did not do it for the money I did it for the love of the school and the love of the game.

It's not just trying to get professional broadcasters and a station. Its finding a school who will give you premission to do them.

We offered to broadcast the ECA games AGAIN on radio this year and was turned down AGAIN. My broadcast team did the ECA games for 5 years and were very professional about it and sounded great. Really did not make sense this year since ECA will be on the road for 6 of the 9 games and most of those away games are over 100 miles away. Now how are fans and non fans going to keep track of the games?

ROCK ON!

Huntington-no one shows up for the games, doubt they would listen on the radio

Woodlawn-see huntington

southwood-see huntington

bossier-they have pretty decent turn out their games, might lose some of that

green oaks-see huntington

btw-see huntington

fairpark-see huntington

parkway-they want all the gate revenue, don't even allow visiting broadcasters

there is simply no school pride when it comes to football at the majority of caddo public schools. the inner city ones can't even put fans in the seats, they certainly aren't going to tune in on the radio.

Yeah cvwildcat and the only time they broadcast is the Soul Bowl game against Green Oaks. I have tried to talk to BTW to broadcast this season but the principal and Shreveport African American Chamber of Commerce told me no. I even told them that my uncle, who is a BTW alumnus, was trying to offer them $100,000 to let us have a broadcasting crew but they refused.

Rick I am still not understanding about the ECA deal because you is right. I really thought that KEEL would come back to broadcast ECA football but when I called the scholar to see if we will have a broadcasting team they said no. This will be the first time since 1990 that Evangel will not be on the air either live streaming or on the radio.

I tried to call 1300 am The Gospel to work on a deal but the program director turned it down to cover Huntington football along with me broadcasting the Soul Bowl game. With the Soul Bowl game, they are letting students broadcast with Curtis Wright. The last two seasons that I listened to the Soul Bowl game on my iPhone and ipad it was the worst broadcasting ever. They wasn't calling the play by play and more than likely interviewing people from the game while it was in progress.

I talked to the Shreveport African American Chamber of Commerce to work on a deal where I was going to pay them this season to broadcast but they voted a 7-1 to reject me. I even tried to give them a deal to have the game on ihigh.com but they told me that they would not want internet broadcasting.

I really feel that by 2014 we could work on some deals with some of the Shreveport/Bossier schools to get some broadcasting crews so they can see on hierarchy it can expand on recruiting especially with the technology that we have today. Rick I will keep trying and not give up.

Harlem: They did not have any broadcast last year and the 2 years before that it was only home games done by students on-line but had problems staying connnected .. Our crew did the state championship games the last 2 out of 3 years on air and on-line.

According to Jericho media, Neville is still on 101.9. I don't see how the format change affects football anyway.

Getting people to sponsor the games is not easy in the Shreveport market. Captain Shreve was real close to not having their games on this season. They had a hard time collecting the money last year and have even stopped selling game programs - like many schools have in the area - because they can't sell the ads needed to produce them.

The overall support for the schools in Shreveport has become non-existent. It has become pretty sad that the communities around these schools don't support their schools anymore. It just doesn't make sense for someone to give money towards ads that don't reach many people.

If you really want to get on the air, you might check with Shreve to see if they can use your services. Tony Taglavore is usually out for a game or two because he has to be gone for the Northwestern games that weekend. Ben Marshall does the color for their games and is forced to go solo on nights when Tony can't be there. He might want for someone to help him on those nights when he is solo, but I am not sure about that.

one of the big issues with getting ad sales is that some of the local schools with zero involvement from parents, fans, etc. sign up with these fundraising companies from out of state who cold call all the local businesses and get money from them that never makes it to the school. all the school gets is a box of tshirts or plastic footballs and the fundraising company in god knows where pockets the $5-600. then when local boosters call, the company says well i already signed up to do this or that with this company.
