How to hear your local team’s football broadcast this season

Football season is upon us again, and for many of us that means Friday nights spent at one of our great area football stadiums or maybe you’ll be on the road with your team this season. And while many of you do follow your team on the road, sometimes it’s just not practical for faithful fans to do. And let’s not forget our shut-in fans or fans that are no longer living local to the Marion County area who want to catch the action each week.

Listening to your local team’s games online is not a problem this season for fans in Marion County three of the county’s high schools will be broadcast over the radio and online this season — including Marion County High, South Pittsburg High, and for the first time in recent years — Whitwell High School.
