Broadcast Rights Fee

Asheville High does not charge a broadcast (rights) fee for any radio or online audio broadcast of sporting events. However, the NCHSAA may charge a fee for certain games. Video streaming of games is not permitted since this is reserved exclusively for the Cougar Sports Network. We welcome and encourage members of the media to visit our campus often to help expose the talented student athletes at Asheville High, and hope you enjoy your visit! (We also encourage you to mention our website!)
Radio/Online/Live Audio

Asheville High welcomes live audio broadcasts from the Zeb Lee Press Box. O­ne private booth is available, with priority given to home media o­n a first-come, first-served basis. WISE Radio 1310 AM has reserved the enclosed radio booth. An open seating area is also available. Electrical outlets and multiple phone lines are available in each location. Additional phone lines cannot be added, but local lines for radio broadcasts are available for a fee if reserved in advance. The lines are toll-restricted and long distance charges must be covered by the media outlet using the line. Parking may be available near the concession stand if arranged in advance.
TV

The Cougar Sports Network owns the exclusive rights to all home TV broadcasts in the Asheville area as well as all video streaming. CSN also has priority in the private home TV booth inside the press box. Visiting schools that wish to bring a TV crew and truck are encouraged to do so, but must make arrangements in advance to coordinate truck, talent, and camera positions. For a fee, CSN can alternatively provide an audio and video feed for away broadcast. In accordance with NCHSAA rules, football games may not be broadcast live via television.
The stadium is wired with audio and video connections for broadcast use. When not in use by the Cougar Sports Network, special arrangements can be made to use these connections.
Team Video (Coaches’ game footage) may shoot from either the coaches’ booth or the press box roof. Both locations have electrical outlets within easy reach.
