The battle for The Zone banner begins

#TheZone8 returns Friday nights on WISH-TV

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – High school football kicks off a new season Friday night, which means the return of The Zone on WISH-TV.

Each Friday at 11:08 p.m., News 8 brings you highlights of at least 20 high school football games, the most in the state, with Anthony Calhoun, Charlie Clifford and Olivia Ray. Also, don’t miss the performances of our band of the week throughout the show.

The fun starts on Daybreak with area high school bands and cheerleaders live in the News 8 studio.

At 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. sports director Anthony Calhoun hosts The Zone Tailgate live from a local high school.

In addition to capturing all the action on the field, our crews are also searching for the best fans and student sections in the state. At the end of the season, we will award The Zone banner to central Indiana’s best student section.

If you’re out at a game, we’d love to see your photos and videos. Be sure to tweet us using #TheZone8 and you could be featured on our show!

And immediately after the show ends on WISH-TV, we keep going on Facebook Live. You never know what will happen as we go behind the scenes and have a little fun with our band of the week.
