Indianapolis (March 17, 2011) – RTV 6 Vice President and General Manager, Larry Blackerby, and HomeTown Sports Indiana President, Rick Vanderwielen, announced today, an exciting new partnership between RTV 6 and HomeTown Sports Indiana.

The new partnership will give more than a million Hoosiers access to the HomeTown Sports product and RTV 6 viewers’ access to a mixture of live and encore sporting events. Regional high school and collegiate games will be featured on RTV 6.2, which is available on nine cable systems throughout central Indiana, totaling nearly 830,000 viewers.

“The viewers in central Indiana are going to love this channel,” said Blackerby. “We are going to have high school sports of all types. They’ll get high school football, high school basketball, high school volleyball, high school bowling. You name it and we’re going to have it on this channel. Then you throw in the college sports from across the state, it’s a wonderful opportunity.”

RTV 6.2 can also be seen over the air to all television households in the Indianapolis market, meaning HomeTown Sports will soon be available to more than the 1.1 million Hoosiers.

“We’re excited to make our product accessible to viewers all across central Indiana,” said Vanderwielen. “By partnering with RTV6, we will be able to add digital wide-screen technology that will make our sports programming an exceptional presentation. RTV 6’s commitment to show live events will give viewers a destination for local sports.”

HomeTown Sports Indiana, a division of HomeTown Television Corporation in Noblesville, Ind., is the official producer of the Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA).
