Exciting, quality high school football in East Tennessee is back! Two of our Cumulus Broadcasting stations will once again bring you the best top-to-bottom coverage you will find anywhere, in any market!

We’ll have THREE live play-by-play football broadcasts each week throughout the season including our KOC Game of The Week on AM 990, all Knoxville Catholic games on FM 99.1 and all Hardin Valley Academy games on NewsTalk 98.7!

Games kickoff at 7:30pm ET! Listen to our KOC Game of the Week with different teams and great match-ups on AM 990 with play-by-play-announcer Vince Ferrara and new color analyst, former University of Tennessee assistant coach, Don Mahoney. Once again the Knoxville Catholic Fighting Irish will be broadcast all season on FM 99.1 with their longtime play-by-play voice John Wilkerson and game analyst Rob Demastus. For the second straight season, you can listen to every Hardin Valley Academy Hawks game broadcast live, presented by Volunteer Pharmacy by the team of Joel Silverberg and Brian Tatum.

Starting at 7pm on AM 990 and NewsTalk 98.7, we’ll preview all the big prep football games of the night on our stations and throughout East Tennessee on the Pioneer Heating and Air Pre-Game Show. We’ll bring you scoreboard updates of other match-ups in the area during our game broadcasts. Then, the New Balance of Knoxville Halftime Show gets you up-to-the-minute scores of all the games in the area. After each game, don’t miss the complete East Tennessee prep football New Balance of Knoxville Post-game Scoreboard Show with constant finals and scores as they come in. Eric Cain anchors our studio coverage.

There will not be a pre-game show airing on FM 99.1, which will be carrying Tennessee Sports Night from 7-7:30pm. The Catholic games will follow at 7:30pm. There will only be postgame coverage on FM 99.1 and AM 990.

All FM 99.1 Catholic football games can also be heard streaming on 991TheSportsAnimal.com and on the WNML mobile app powered by Big Kahuna Wings. All Hardin Valley Academy broadcasts can also be heard streaming on NewsTalk987.com and on the WOKI mobile app powered by Computer Depot.
