WISH-TV will broadcast special programming from downtown and offer expanded sports coverage with All ACcess Indy, led by sports director, Anthony Calhoun and the Emmy-winning sports 8 team.
“The success of our sports programming franchise, All ACcess Indy, shows that Indiana viewers enjoy the local connection to national sporting events,” said Calhoun. “We are excited to be a part of this huge event and provide fans even more local content on all platforms live coverage at the downtown events.
“The CFP Indianapolis Host Committee is excited to partner with WISH-TV to highlight the upcoming game and events that this city will pack into a four-day period and beyond,” said Susan Baughman, president of the host committee. “We’ve chosen to partner with WISH-TV because of their extensive community involvement and plan to work together to honor the more than 66,000 teachers in Indiana through the College Football Playoff Foundation and legacy initiatives. As this city does with any sporting event, we make it more than a game, and there are so many wonderful stories that will be told through this partnership.”
