Back during the Derby Festival Classic, I remember the event was broadcasted online by some site called Wazoo Sports. It wasn’t until today that I found out Wazoo Sports specializes in broadcasting high school sports of particular interest to Kentuckians. And now, Wazoo has teamed up with WLEX in Lexington to produce a TV channel that will broadcast Kentucky high school basketball and football as well as UK games of the past. Consider it an ESPN Classic for only Kentucky viewers.
Wazoo, whose VP is none other than our own Jeff Sheppard, says that on Christmas Day they will be airing “the” Duke game in ’92. Other games that are slated in December are the ’96 and ’98 Championship games. Count me as someone who will be watching, no doubt being nervous still when we’re down 10 to Utah at halftime.
And if you’re someone who doesn’t have Insight, Wazoo will be broadcasting as a subchannel of WLEX on Channel 18.2.
