  • metro east HS get's own radio network

    I thought this was kind of interesting. Didn't notice if it was mentioned.

    BELLEVILLE - Radio station WCBW-AM 880[Highland, Il.]
    has contracted with officials at Belleville East High School
    to broadcast Lancers' football and basketball games in
    2005-06.

    Football coverage will begin 15 minutes before game time and
    will include interviews with East coaches, players, and school
    officials.

    ANDY MILLAS and LUKE PATTON will handle play-by-play duties for
    football. East opens the season at 7 p.m. Friday at Mount Vernon.

      They "try" to be primarily an Illinois station.
      Despite being so relatively close to the city
      of St. Louis. 880 also carries a lot of Illini
      football and basketball games. Some years
      back, they used to air a bunch of East St. Louis
      high games with Maurice Scott on the PxP.
      I can only guess Belleville East must've worked
      out a more profitable deal as far as the radio
      station is concerned. They do have a fairly strong
      signal for those of us in the metro east Illinois counties.
      It certainly won't hurt the Lancers exposure. The
      SWC is a pretty decent athletic conference.

        East Side has both radio and Cable TV shows for football.
