We are attempting to cover many events - LIVE!
by Pete Fasciano, Executive Director 10/11/2020
The pandemic has forced schools to make and remake some very difficult decisions. These decisions remain in flux as conditions shift. Safety dictates that crowds of parents and friends be minimal to nonexistent. For most schools, that means only one-parent-per-student is permitted to attend the event.

The emptiness of the walkway and stands is stark.
Our second attempt was during the rain and windstorm that rolled through during the game. There was a fast scramble to protect people and equipment.

Our third game the next day at Beaver field was in better weather. We will continue refining our live game coverage efforts as best we can as winter rolls in.
You can watch our live sports on our Franklin Pride school channel, on Comcast 96 or Verizon 28. We are also now streaming our channels in high definition.

We are also coordinating our live programs with those of other community PEG studios across the Hockomock League and region. Lots of events are planned.
We will also post our games for Video-on-Demand replays. This may take up to a week after game time. Will we be perfect? No guarantees. The internet and the weather can be fickle. But, continue we must. Fingers crossed.
And – as always –
Thank you for listening to wfpr●fm.
