Local Sports Events

As part of it's commitment to the community, WNRV has always been involved with promoting the the local schools. One of the ways in which we do this is by covering and broadcasting sports for both the Giles and Narrows high schools.

Our special 2015 WNRV football disc is now available, this contains all of the recordings for the 2015 Spartan and Green Wave Varsity football games, including the playoffs. This year's disc has special bonus interview with former Giles coach Steve Ragsdale. This exclusive disc is available for only $8 and is a great gift. Here is more info on the 2015 football disc, contact us to get your copy today!

Normally we will cover multiple games each week, with at least one being broadcast live and the others recorded and replayed each Saturday at 10 AM. For example, for football we cover every varsity football game for Narrows and Giles, with one live game broadcast each week and both games replayed each Saturday. Our own local live Speaking of Sports show airs each week from 9-10 AM to bring you the latest in local sports, and the games are replayed following this show.

Here are some of the local sports events that WNRV has been involved with over the past few years:
