The 2015 school year marks the 21st year of the last 22 that Jon Fine (Sports) Productions has had the privilege of producing and calling play-by-play for Denham Springs HS Football radio broadcasts.  In 2015, the broadcast slate will include all 10 regular season Denham games, and every playoff game. Broadcasts will air on Fox Sports Radio-1210AM-Baton Rouge, with “Sport N Center Jackets Warm Up” starting at 6:00 pm Friday nights.  All broadcasts can also be heard on the Internet at JonFineProductions.com (click Listen Live on the Denham Springs Football PBP page). The first broadcast is Friday, September 4, as the Jackets play host to East Ascension High School..

Jon Fine is serving his twelfth straight year calling radio play-by-play for Denham Springs HS Football.  He is joined by Andy Duckworth, who serves in his first year as color commentator on Yellow Jackets broadcasts.

“Sport N Center Jackets Warm-Up” will include an interview with Jackets Athletic Director/ Football Coach Dru Nettles. 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.   Fine and Duckworth will also offer a preview of that night’s game and other pertinent information. Plus, as both are former radio sports-talk hosts, the two will spend a segment of Sport N Center Jackets Warm-Up covering and opining on the top stories in the sports world, with an emphasis on LSU, the Saints and local/state sports.

At half-time, the “Dr. Michael Sceroler Half-Time Report” will include an interview with a prominent Denham Springs community and/or sports figure.  In addition, Fine and Duckworth will provide a recap of the first half and a look ahead at the second half of action.

During the “Jack Fridge—Livingston Waste Post-Game Report”, Duckworth will interview Coach Nettles a couple of minutes after the final gun.  Plus, there will be an extensive game recap, final stats and a look ahead.

When the Jackets score, you’ll get the particulars on the “Big Mike’s Sports Bar & Grill Jackets Scoring Drive”.  A much better restauranteur then he was a student, Big Mike claims to be a Denham Springs HS graduate.

Sport-N-Center owner Stacy Phipps (Baseball), Dr. Michael Sceroler (Football, Baseball), Jack Fridge (Basketball) and 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. 

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, including The Dru Nettles Show.  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.

Initially recruited to play baseball at Mississippi State, Andy Duckworth transferred to Belhaven University, where he lettered for 4 years on the baseball team.  He also played basketball for the Blazers.  After graduating from Belhaven, Duckworth got involved in radio, eventually owning and managing a station in Mississippi for close to a decade.  In this capacity, he hosted a sports talk show and did play by play for Mississippi College and Madison Central High School. Born and raised just north of Jackson in Madison, MS, Duckworth has been a resident of Denham Springs for 6 years.   When not calling Jackets color commentary, he is a Financial Advisor for Edward Jones (along with the “Godfather”—the great Denham Springs HS football broadcast sponsor-- Scott Landry) in the greater Denham Springs area.  Duckworth and his wife, Jenee, have 2 children, Drew (11) and Cate (9), who both attend school in Denham Springs.

Denham Springs HS football broadcasts air on Fox Sports Radio, 1210AM, Baton Rouge. Before being bought by Clear Channel in 1998, the station was Christian Country, Bayou, 1210AM-- located on Hatchell Lane in Denham Springs.  This station was owned by Jeff and Nancy David.  Jeff David is the Owner/Publisher of The Livingston Parish News.
