The 2018 school year marks the 24th season that Jon Fine (Sports) Productions will have the privilege of producing and calling play-by-play for Denham Springs HS Football radio broadcasts.  In 2018, the broadcast slate will include all 10 regular season Denham games, and every playoff game. Broadcasts will air on Family Radio-91.9 FM-Baton Rouge, starting at 6:00 pm Friday nights.  All broadcasts can also be heard on the Internet at (click Listen Live on the Denham Springs Football PBP page). The first broadcast is Friday, August 31, as the Jackets are on the road against Hammond High School.

“Sport N Center Jackets Warm-Up” will include an interview with Jackets Athletic Director/ Football Coach Bill Conides. Randy Smith’s popular retrospective, “Yellow Jackets Memories”, will air on selective pre-game shows this year.  Smith’s feature will be interspersed with interviews with Sponsors of The Week.  A North Oaks Health Minute will give listeners tips to improve their health.—Hopefully, Fine will be paying attention and taking notes.   Ward and Fine will also offer a preview of that night’s game and other pertinent information.
