WISH-TV, MyINDY-TV 23 to broadcast 80 MIC high school games in 2020

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — DuJuan McCoy, Owner of WISH-TV and MyINDY-TV 23; and Greg Maish, president of ISC Sports Network, announced today a multi-year partnership to broadcast live, high school athletic events on WISH-TV and MyINDY-TV 23 (WNDY).

“Indiana is just different in how we as a state view high school sports. They still matter to communities, from the big cities to the small towns, and we are privileged to broadcast them on a regular basis,” said Greg Maish, President of ISC Sports Network. “To find a broadcast TV partner with the same mindset is a unique opportunity to bring these games to a broader audience. There was a taste of this during the football season, and now it is incredibly exciting to build this partnership with WISH-TV and MyINDY-TV 23 and to know these games will be seen for the foreseeable future.”

This broadcast collaboration will bring up to 80 high school games, including several with the Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference (MIC) throughout the year. The partnership will also bring all-star contests and other special athletic events to WISH-TV and MyINDY-TV 23. The MIC is made up of Ben Davis, Carmel, Center Grove, Lawrence Central, Lawrence North, North Central, Pike, and Warren Central high schools.

“I am very pleased to be able to expand our local sports programming on WISH-TV and MyINDY-TV 23 for the viewers of Indiana,” said DuJuan McCoy, Owner, President, and CEO of Circle City Broadcasting. “The history of high school sports in Indiana is legendary worldwide, and I am eager to help bring back Hoosier hysteria to our great state, on broadcast television, where it belongs.”

The full schedule for high school sports broadcasts will be available as the seasons are announced. The first match-up can be seen Wednesday, December 11, 2019, as Lawrence Central hosts Lawrence North at 7:30 p.m., followed by the Hall of Fame Classic on December 27, and 28, 2019, all on MyINDY-TV 23.


Neighbors stunned by shooting in ‘safe,’ ‘quiet’ Eagles Watch subdivision

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH ) — The Eagles Watch subdivision on the city’s northwest side is home to dozens of families.

“It’s very quiet here,” said Irma Molina, who lives on Eagles Watch Drive.

The winding road is often touted as an oasis of safety, seemingly removed from the city’s crime crisis, according to Jeremy Layly, who lives down the street from Molina.

He walks his dogs through the neighborhood every night without worrying about what he’ll encounter in the dark.

On Thursday night, his walk led him toward flashing police lights and crime scene tape. 

Detectives were collecting evidence from the scene of a shooting in the 5000 block of Eagles Watch Drive, less than a quarter of a mile from Layly’s home.

“I’ve heard gunshots [before] but not in the neighborhood,” he told News 8. “That’s intense.”

Officers arrived around 4 p.m. after neighbors reported hearing gunshots. An unidentified man was pronounced dead at the scene.

No arrests had been made Thursday night. No suspect information was available.

The shooting appeared to be targeted and did not pose an immediate threat to public safety, police said.

“[Detectives are] working hard to solve these crimes and to prevent crimes,” said Michael Hewitt, a spokesperson for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD).

Molina, whose home was within the police perimeter, ducked under the yellow tape to speak with News 8.

She and her son still feel safe living on Eagles Creek Drive, she said, but she is wary of rising crime in other parts of the city.

“It is very dangerous lately,” Molina said in Spanish. “Many crimes have happened.”

Anybody with information about the shooting is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (317) 262-TIPS.
