WSOC-TV Expands, and Enhances, Community Partnership Within Five School Districts

CHARLOTTE, NC, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2018 / — WSOC-TV is committed to supporting student-athletes throughout the area expanding its partnerships to Union County Public Schools and Cabarrus County Schools. Currently, the station is already partnering and supporting Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, Iredell-Statesville Schools and Fort Mill Schools. In addition to providing support for the district’s athletic programs, WSOC-TV will remain the official forecast provider delivering their “Friday Night Lights Weather Forecast Presented by Severe Weather Center 9”.

As a strong supporter of education and interscholastic athletic programs, WSOC-TV will also continue to source the StatSquad STEM Program, an opportunity for students to collect, input, edit and analyze the data from their own athletic programs in a highly collaborative environment. Other elements of the partnership include public access to Hudl Highlights, a new Severe Weather Center 9 Weather Module, and opportunities to engage with the community throughout the sports season.

“We are enthusiastic about the potential growth and opportunity presented in this expanded partnership,” explained Founder and President of National Amateur Sports, James Shipley. “From investing in the education of our student-athletes through StatSquad to providing an accurate weather forecast for families every Friday night, WSOC-TV has continued to demonstrate their passion for interscholastic athletics over the past two years.”

With this partnership, news and information for the above athletic programs will remain easily accessible though their district-wide, multi-media platforms. It will continue to provide student-athletes, families and fans with content and efficiencies including online athletic registrations, game and practice schedules, scores/results, team and program news, events, photos, videos and highlights all in one convenient location.
