Mike Ridaught, the founder and publisher of ThePrepZone.com, announced an extended partnership with the radio station I am Country 106.9 FM to include local high school basketball, and postseason football.
“I’m excited to let you know that we will be broadcasting the high school football playoffs AND high school basketball on I am Country 106.9 FM,” he wrote in a release. “I’m still waiting on schedules, but it looks like a 9-game regular season schedule for hoops on radio this season.”
He was also thankful to get through a difficult September schedule and still manage to broadcast a full slate of high school football games.
“I’m happy to report that we ended up broadcasting a total of 13 ‘live’ high school sports games/shows in the month of September. We had some help as I navigated my way through COVID-19. I’m thankful to all who helped keep the momentum going while I was out. The goal for October is to at least match that number.”
Ridaught also announced the upcoming schedule for The Prep Zone and I am Country 106.9.
