Alabama Public Television to broadcast 2022 AHSAA Super 7 Championships

Birmingham, AL – Alabama Public Television will be partnering with the NFHS Network to provide live statewide coverage of the Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) 2022 Super 7 Championships and the 2023 AHSAA State Basketball Championships’ 14 state girls’ and boys’ finals.

APT will broadcast Alabama’s State High School Football Championships live from Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Wednesday, Nov. 30 – Friday, Dec. 2 with digital viewing on the NFHS Network.   Recordings of the games will be available on-demand on APT’s website the week following the broadcast.

As part of the agreement, APT also plans to televise the 2023 AHSAA Basketball State Championships’ 14 state boys’ and girls’ finals.

“This is an opportunity we’ve been interested in for many years,” said APT’s interim executive director, Phil Hutcheson. “Several other public television stations carry their state’s championship games and they are very popular. Georgia Public Broadcasting has the highest ratings for public television in the country when they present their coverage.”

AHSAA Executive Director Alvin Briggs said this is great news for its member schools and the communities across the state. “We are excited that APT and the NFHS Network will be partnering to expand the coverage, thus making available our Super 7 state championship games and State Basketball Finals to basically every household in the state thanks to APT’s presence and availability through cable, satellite and antenna TV.”

Michael White, Executive Vice President for Content and Programming for PlayOn! Sports, which manages the NFHS Network, said, “The NFHS Network and the AHSAA have had a wonderful partnership for many years, and we’re really thrilled to be adding Alabama Public Television to that mix. The NFHS Network’s OTT platform for digital viewing combined with the APT Statewide Television Network, will blanket the state of Alabama and beyond in AHSAA Football and Basketball Championship coverage.”

The games will continue to be produced by WOTM TV.
