BCC's Radio Station to Broadcast High School Football

Burlington County College’s (BCC) radio station WBZC-FM (Z88.9) is teaming with the Burlington County Sports Network this fall to provide comprehensive coverage throughout the high school football season online and over the air.

“Burlington County College has a history of supporting local high school communities and this partnership will enhance that tradition,” BCC Interim President Dr. David Spang said. “High school football can unify communities and we are proud to be able to expand access to the best football action in Burlington County.”

The Burlington County Sports Network (BurlCo SportsNet), a subsidiary of JL Media, is the premier provider of high school sports coverage in the county, offering in-depth insights and analysis with network-quality multimedia content including live play-by-play, talk show analysis, practice breakdowns and written articles.

“As the leading source for high school sports in South Jersey, BurlCo SportsNet is excited about the opportunity to team up with an established radio presence like Z88.9,” said JL Media President and CEO Jay Liberti. “This partnership will help us build upon the tremendous success we experienced last year as an internet-only network, provide real-life conditions for BCC students to learn sports broadcasting and, most importantly, provide greater access for people in Burlington County to follow the best high school football action.”

Games will be broadcast at www.burlcosportsnet.com and on 88.9 FM.

“Our team has extensive professional experience and we are thrilled to join with Burlco SportsNet in providing the best coverage of high school sports in the area,” Z88.9 Operation Manager Jay Varga said. “This is an opportunity for Burlington County College students to learn sports broadcasting under game conditions and for communities to follow the top high school games wherever they go.”
