City Section athletes playing for championships next weekend will receive plenty of exposure on KLCS Channel 58, the Los Angeles Board of Education’s television station.
The girls’ and boys’ City 4-A basketball finals Friday will be televised live from the Sports Arena, with the girls’ game at 6 p.m. and the boys’ at 8 p.m.
The girls’ and boys’ City 4-A soccer finals next Saturday at East Los Angeles College will be televised live for the first time, the girls’ starting at 4 p.m. and the boys’ at 6 p.m.
KLCS televised the City 4-A and 3-A football championship games and plans to broadcast the City track finals. It hopes to televise the City 4-A and 3-A baseball finals from Dodger Stadium. The station produced preview shows for football, basketball, soccer and baseball.
“The superintendent feels [televising high school sports] is important because it shows kids doing something positive,” KLCS producer Richard Cochran said.
