EATEL’s Game of the Week programming continues this fall with coverage of local high school football. Exclusive to EATEL Channel 4, the Game of the Week program highlights our local high school football games every week.

In addition, EATEL is providing advertising opportunities within the game broadcasts to each of the three schools to be used toward fundraising efforts. Each high school will keep 100 percent of the advertising sold for each game airing on EATEL Channel 4. For more information about advertising, please contact the school’s representative:

· Dutchtown High School - Coach Benny Saia at 225-391-6232

· East Ascension High School - Gennia Baye at 225-571-0880

· St. Amant High School - James LeBlanc at 225-717-5436

The EATEL Game of the Week will broadcast two featured games each weekend, first on Friday nights at 10:30 PM and then on Saturdays at 7 p.m. The games will then replay on EATEL Channel 4 on Sundays at 6 a.m. and 5 p.m., and on Monday through Thursday at 2:00 p.m.

“As a hometown business, we know both the importance and value of local high school athletics, so we’re excited to once again offer these games on EATEL Channel 4 this fall,” said Toby DuBois, EATEL Chief Marketing Officer. “Also, we are happy to support our local youth by offering this new funding opportunity and are hopeful that each school will be able to supplement their fundraising by offering in-game advertising to their local supporting business and boosters.”
