Following an exciting inaugural season in broadcasting over 200 live sporting events in the Grant County area, the Action Sports Network is proud to announce that year number two will be bigger and better than ever. Action Sports Network and its parent company Eighty8 Entertainment is teaming up with Dream Weaver Marketing’s Mi-Bash Sports Network to bring listeners games from Grant, Wabash, and Miami Counties.
The Mi-Bash Sports Network has been the leader in the Mi-Bash area in sports for 20 years and it only made sense for the two leaders in live local sports coverage in their respective counties to join forces to give listeners in all three counties not only the most coverage but the best coverage.
“This has been a dream of mine to bring Wabash and Miami counties every game possible and with this partnership we are able to do just that.” Wade Weaver, owner of Dream Weaver Marketing said. Andy McCord, owner of Eighty8 Entertainment said, “When we started Action Sports Network, our goal was to grow after our first year and we are so excited to partner with the Mi-Bash Sports Network and bring our listeners more games and coverage that will be hard to beat in the entire state of Indiana in terms of number of games and quality of broadcasts.”
This is not the first time Weaver and McCord have been together. McCord worked for Weaver from 1995-1997 when Weaver owned WLHN in Elwood and WERK in Muncie. McCord later worked for Weaver from 2007-2014 in Wabash and Peru. Now both serving as owners they are teaming up again.
“It is all about synergy. We have the terrestrial radio signals with 101.9 and 105.9 and they have the internet listeners. Working together made sense.” Weaver added. This is only the beginning of growth for the Action Sports Network we are also planning to add two to three more schools in the area to give more coverage to schools that don’t receive the coverage they deserve.” McCord said.
The partnership will cover football and volleyball in fall, Boys and Girls Basketball in the winter, and Baseball and softball in the spring. Games will be broadcast on the Action Sports Network at www.actionsportsnetwork.live, or on the free APP in the App Store or Google Play store, 101.9 Rocks FM, and 105.9 The Bash FM. “We have had so much support over my 20 plus years in the Mi-Bash area from our sponsors and are looking for continued support from businesses and individuals who love high school sports.” Weaver said. McCord added, “One of the biggest keys for us to do this and bring all the schools the coverage is having support from local businesses who want to join us in our journey to get these kids names on the air and show them the support they deserve and treat them like rock stars.”
The partnership also plans to include a Friday night Post Game Show for listeners, Coaches, players, and fans can call in and talk about their favorite team. Plus, each group will host a coaches show for their respective counties.
