Main Street Preps is teaming up with popular local sports host George Plaster to produce a weekly high school football show, “On the Field”. The show will debut Friday, Aug. 28 from 6:30–9:30 p.m. and run throughout the high school football season.
“On the Field” will be broadcast live on Main Street Media of Tennessee’s 12 Facebook pages and simulcast on WVCP 88.5 Volunteer State Community College Radio. Murfreesboro Post Sports Editor Monte Hale will co-host the show with Plaster.
The fast-paced show will feature real time updates, interviews and insights from games across the Midstate.
“We have been providing high school fans across Middle Tennessee with the most extensive high school sports coverage over the past few years and this show will really enhance what we can offer,” said Dave Gould, owner of Main Street Media of Tennessee. “With sports having been on hold for so long, we know there will be a pent-up demand for the type of information we will be providing. We are very excited to be working with George, who has been a sports radio institution for many years.”
“Especially during this time with the COVID, many people interested in their high school football teams won’t be able to go to the games,” Plaster said. “The service that we are trying to provide will help that as people will be able to keep up with their favorite team as the game is going on.”
The show will include live look-ins from games being played across the Midstate, staffed by Main Street Media of Tennessee’s sports editors, reporters, writers and photographers.
