WSAV announces Thursday Night Blitz Game of the Week television schedule

(Savannah) – WSAV-TV announces its 2014 television schedule of Georgia and South Carolina high school football broadcasts. The WSAV Thursday Night Blitz Game of the Week — now in its third season promises something new, high definition broadcasts.  The entire 11-game schedule will air Thursday evenings on MyLC (WSAV DIGITAL 3.2 — check local listings for channel location in your area) with coverage beginning each week at 7pm.  An encore broadcast of each game will air on WSAV-TV Sunday mornings.

The WSAV THURSDAY NIGHT BLITZ GAME OF THE WEEK season will debut August 21, 2014 when Savannah Christian plays Jenkins High School at Garden City Stadium. 

WSAV Sports Director/Anchor Ken Slats will handle play-by-play duties.  “This year we’re taking it to a new level” said Sports Director Ken Slats.  “We have added high definition broadcasts and hope to bring more color, excitement and creativity to each and every telecast.” Previous color commentators included: Sports Radio 102.1’s Seth Harp, In The Game Magazine’s Tom Hilliard, freelance writer Steven Weeks, WTKS radio’s Bill Edwards and SCCPSS Athletic Director Mark Stroud.  “The 2014 WSAV Thursday Night Blitz schedule includes a great mix of schools from across our viewing area – we’re talking Chatham, Beaufort, Bulloch,  Bryan, Toombs, Jasper, Long, Candler and Emanuel Counties – AND three private schools represented. We also have the long awaited varsity football debut of two new Chatham County high schools, Islands and New Hampstead.  This schedule will give us a great opportunity to showcase more than just football programs.”

WSAV began its Blitz brand in 2008.  Now in its’ seventh year, the Blitz Lineup includes The Friday Night Blitz high school football highlight show Fridays at 11:15pm on WSAV; The Blitz Extra Saturday mornings on WSAV, The WSAV Blitz Top 10 poll Thursdays on News 3 at 6:00, The WSAV Thursday Night Blitz Game of the Week on MyLC, and The Sunday morning rebroadcast of the Game of the Week on WSAV-TV.   Earlier this year, WSAV expanded its local sports coverage to include broadcasts of high school and college basketball games, called The Blitz Basketball Series.
