Times to broadcast games online

Friday, January 20, 2012

For the second consecutive year, The Brazil Times is offering online readers an opportunity to catch area high school sporting events on its website.

Readers now have the chance to watch live broadcasts of girls' and boys' basketball games from both Northview and Clay City high schools at www.thebraziltimes.com.

"We have already broadcast some games and have plans to continue broadcasting games throughout the season," Managing Editor Jason Moon said.

Times' General Manager Lynne Llewellyn added the hope is to begin broadcasting meetings of various council entities as well.

The Times will have areas set up at both Northview and Clay City where the broadcasting of games will take place.

Games at Northview will be broadcast from the second level in the gymnasium, on the northwest side. Likewise, athletic events at Clay City will be broadcast from the stage in the high school gym, on the northwest corner.

Back this year to commentate the athletic events is Northview alum and current Vincennes University student J.T. Jeffries.

"J.T. has been superb with his commentary, and we welcome the opportunity to work with him again," Moon said.

To access broadcasts, those interested need only click on either the Brazil or Clay City buttons on the left side of the main page of the website. Both schools have their own channel.

From there, users are directed to a page where the broadcasts are and only have to press play.

Broadcasting of the athletic events was hoped to begin at the beginning of the basketball season. However, technical glitches pushed the launch back a few weeks.

We live out of town and cannot go to the games as we would like. We certainly appreciate being able to view the game. Thanks so much for doing this. GO KNIGHTS!
