NOKOMIS — In its mission to integrate more live content, Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network is finalizing details for the carriage of high school sports.
A good start will be coming forth shortly with broadcasts of the Illinois High School Association basketball state tournaments.
Currently, 14 broadcast groups from throughout the state are carrying those games. Currently, we are the only Internet-exclusive broadcast in its midst.
Delivery options to our studio are still pending, but it is likely to be an online stream with high-quality audio. This will help in the seamless process of content delivery to our streams.
As a result, we would like to try integrating as many local advertising spots as possible when we’re allowed to go into network breaks. When local spots are exhausted, we will integrate national and network spots.
We are still trying to plot out our scheduling to account for any teams within our 38-county coverage area that might appear across IHSA’s four classes.
However, these events do not yet have a set number of games at this time. We should have a definite idea once the playoff schedule is official.
With that said, Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network plans to offer local spots for each game that we carry (one per broadcast):
- :30 for $30
- :60 for $45
- 1:30 for $60
- 2:00 for $75
- 2:30 for $90
We will also be making the following offers for multiple spots (minimum two spots, with $20 per additional spot):
- :30 spots for $50
- :60 spots for $75
- 1:30 spots for $100
- 2:00 spots for $137.50
- 2:30 spots for $175
All spots must be pre-recorded, as we temporarily do not have a voiceover staff for hard reads or fully-produced ad spots.
