Hike! The Zone 8 is ready for high school football

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – This Friday night, The Zone returns to your television.

In advance, we’ll present a preview at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday during News 8 at Six.

Every week, you watch the finished product at 11:08 p.m., but that is just a sliver of the work that goes into The Zone. The fun begins on Friday mornings with cheerleaders on “Daybreak,” where we present a rundown of the games to be presented that night. The 11:08 p.m. broadcast features more high school football games than any other local station plus a visit from a local high school band.

News 8 has a game of the week that features a tailgater with radio partner, The Mix 107.9, and food from HotBox Pizza

Franciscan Health is a title sponsor.

At the end of the season, one school wins an award for having the most spirit. You can bring your school into the effort by tweeting game photos and scores with #TheZone8.
