Owensboro Public Schools Launches Radio Station
The Red Devils Sports Network is now on the air on ESPN’s 102.7 The Game. Thanks to a partnership with the Cromwell Radio group, several OHS athletic events will be broadcast live on 102.7 FM. You can also go to Owensbororadio.com and click on 102.7. If you’re on the go, you can listen to the Red Devils on your mobile device if you download the iGoRadio app and click on 102.7. The voice of the devils will be broadcasting legend Jerry Birge.
“Owensboro High School has a rich tradition of incredible sports teams in Kentucky. I’m honored to get to share that tradition with listeners,” said Jerry Birge, Voice of the Red Devils.
The Red Devils Sports Network will broadcast several basketball games this season and will transition to football in the fall. However, the new radio station will serve as more than just a way to hear the Red Devils on the radio. The program will also highlight OPS success stories in both the fine arts and in academics.
“We know people who can’t attend the games in person want to hear about how their Red Devils are doing on the court. But sports aren’t the only thing that OPS is doing well,” said Dr. Chris Gaddis, OPS athletic director.
The broadcast will also feature live interviews with students, which will serve as a huge benefit to OHS journalism students.
Owensboro Public Schools, Owensboro Health and Kentucky Wesleyan College cut the ribbon on the new Owensboro Track and Field on Wednesday, August 16, located between the Owensboro Middle School South and the Owensboro Middle School North campuses on South Griffith Avenue. OPS, Owensboro Health and Kentucky Wesleyan College put their financial resources together to make the track possible.
