FOR RELEASE
2012-11-07
HUNTINGTON, Ind. - The Huntington University athletic department is pleased to announce the launch of a digital video network dedicated to streaming Forester sports.

The network will launch on November 9, 2012, and will be the home for live broadcasts of men’s and women’s basketball games. Games can be accessed via the online HU basketball schedules or by going directly to www.ihigh.com/husn.

HU students from the communication department will provide the manpower to handle all aspects of the game-day streaming process which includes an on-site producer, videographer and audio color and commentary.

“This is an exciting endeavor that we are beginning,” stated Athletic Director Lori Culler. “Not only will it provide our families, friends, alumni and fans an opportunity to follow our basketball teams from a distance, but it will also provide our broadcasting and communications majors a great opportunity to enhance their resumes with hands-on experience in their field of study.”

Huntington joins Bethel, Grace, Indiana Wesleyan, Marian, Mount Vernon, Saint Francis, Spring Arbor and Taylor as Crossroads teams with iHigh video-streaming capability. 
The Huntington University Foresters compete in 16 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 46 NAIA All-America honors and 202 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S.News & World Report ranks Huntington among the best colleges in the Midwest.
