Live Sports & Events = We are preparing to cover many events - LIVE!

by Pete Fasciano, Executive Director 10/04/2020

You read that right. We have been busily rewiring our facility to cover remote school sports and community events – from anywhere – LIVE!

To date, arranging the necessary connections and control to make this possible has proven to be a very daunting challenge. Necessity is indeed the mother of invention. Of late, that necessity has increased – dramatically. So have new technologies and solutions that enable us to finally address that necessity.

The pandemic has forced schools to make and remake some very difficult decisions. These decisions remain in flux as conditions shift. Currently, the schools and MIAA have arranged a schedule for sporting events. Safety dictates that crowds of  parents and friends be minimal to nonexistent. For most participating schools, that means only one-parent-per-student is permitted to attend the event.

We have received requests to carry FHS Panther games and events LIVE, and we have been ‘inventing’ away as well to accomplish that. Our first live event is slated for Monday afternoon. Fingers crossed.

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.

Will we be perfect?  No guarantees – as there is a lot of technology (and the internet) under the hood, making this all happen. But, try we must. Fingers crossed.

And – as always –
Thank you for listening to wfpr●fm.
And, thank you for watching.
