The 2017 school year marks the 22nd season that Jon Fine (Sports) Productions has the privilege of producing and calling  play-by-play for Denham Springs HS Football radio broadcasts.  In 2017, the broadcast slate includes all 10 regular season Denham games and every playoff game. Broadcasts air on Family Radio-91.9 FM-Baton Rouge, starting at 6:00 pm Friday nights with Sport N Center Jackets Warm-Up.  All broadcasts can also be heard on the Internet at (click Listen Live on this page.).

Denham Springs HS grad Josh Ward is the play-by-play announcer of the Jackets.  He is joined by former DSHS play-by-play announcer Jon Fine, who this year serves as color commentator.

“Sport N Center Jackets Warm-Up” includes an interview with Jackets Athletic Director/ Football Coach Bill Conides. Randy Smith’s popular retrospective, “Yellow Jackets Memories”, airs on selective pre-game shows this year.  Smith’s feature is interspersed with interviews with Denham Springs sports figures.  A North Oaks Health Minute gives listeners tips to improve their health.—Hopefully, Fine will start paying attention and take notes.   Ward and Fine also offer a preview of that night’s game and other pertinent information.

At half-time, the “Firehouse Subs 79 Cents Saturday Combo Special Half-Time Report”

 includes an interview with a prominent Denham Springs community and/or sports figure.  In addition, Ward and Fine provide a recap of the first half and a look ahead at the second half of action.

During the “Jack Fridge—Express Waste Post-Game Report”, Fine interviews Coach Conides a couple of minutes after the final gun.  Plus, there is an extensive game recap and a look ahead.

When the Jackets score, you get the particulars on the “Big Mike’s Sports Bar & Grill Jackets Scoring Drive”.

Sport-N-Center owner Stacy Phipps (Baseball), Express Waste owner Jack Fridge (Basketball) and Big Mike’s owner Big Mike O’Neal (Football) were all athletes at Denham Springs HS.

Fine expressed that he is especially appreciative of the loyal commercial and name mention sponsors the broadcasts have had on Jon Fine Sports Productions’ Denham Springs HS play-by-play broadcasts throughout the years.  Many have been with the broadcasts on a year-in, year-out basis.  Fine expressed hope that listeners will have the opportunity to patronize these businesses and let them know they heard about them on DSHS Football radio broadcasts. 

Josh Ward not only allegedly graduated from Denham Springs HS, but served as an assistant basketball coach under Coach Paul Smith.  He has called Redemptorist HS and Central HS Football games for Jon Fine Productions in years’ past.  He is presently the Traffic Manager at Guaranty Broadcasting. Ward is a native of Denham Springs and is single.

Jon Fine co-hosted and produced daily 2 hour drive-time radio sports-talk programs in the Greater Baton Rouge area for close to 20 years.  His programs (first SportsTalk, which changed its name to SportsGumbo), aired, at times, in New Orleans, Lake Charles, Monroe and Alexandria, in addition to the Baton Rouge market.  His company, Jon Fine Productions, has produced numerous Denham Springs HS and area HS sports programming on television, radio and internet.  In addition to his Denham Springs broadcasting chores, Fine has an EBay internet store, ArrestedDevelopmentMedia Guides, and is a marketing representative for a Lake Charles Sports-talk station and a Central radio show.  Fine is a native of Valley Stream, New York and a graduate of Penn.  He is single and does not believe he has any children.
