Jackson State University Launches Its Own Sports Broadcasting Network

Jackson State University in Mississippi has launched a new sports broadcasting network that will allow alumni and other fans of the university’s sports teams to watch action on television and over the internet. Home football games this season are now being shown live on the internet and broadcast on FM radio. Television broadcasts of the football games, produced by the Jackson State network, can be seen on tape delay over Comcast Sports South.

The network will also produce post-game television shows that will include highlights and commentary by head football coach Rick Comegy. The radio network that will carry live football broadcasts has been expanded from 6 to 12 stations. Another 18 stations will carry some live football broadcasts but not all home games.

The network will also stream live online broadcasts of other sports at Jackson State.
