TOWNSQUARE MEDIA Talk WJBC-A-F/BLOOMINGTON, IL is teaming with FRONTIER COMMUNICATIONS for expanded high school sports coverage this season, with FRONTIER installing DSL likes at 15 locations to allow reliable transmission of reports for the "WJBC HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL EXTRAVAGANZA" on FRIDAY nights.
"We're thrilled to be working with FRONTIER COMMUNICATIONS," said WJBC PD R.C. MCBRIDE. "This partnership will allow us to broadcast much more reliably from many of our area schools, where over-the-air broadcasts were a challenge and traditional phone lines struggled to give us the bandwidth current digital equipment requires."
FRONTIER COMMUNICATIONS' MIKE NELSON said, "WJBC has a tremendous legacy of service to CENTRAL ILLINOIS and FRONTIER COMMUNICATIONS is dedicated to unmatched service for its customers."
