Three media access centers collaborate to cover state high school rugby tourney
By Paul Zwicker
This spring, the coach of the Oregon-Stoughton High School Rugby Club asked me if I could produce and televise the 2016 Wisconsin State High School Boys Rugby Championships to be held in Cottage Grove. I was happy to take on the project. After all, I was the assistant coach, I had 30+ years of video experience, and I was the new Program Manager of Oregon Cable Access (OCA Media).First, hoping to get the largest audience possible, I researched what it would cost to have the games produced and aired by a local broadcast station. The quotes came back in the $2,000 range. In order to afford that, I’d need underwriting. After investing some hours on the phone, I realized I wouldn’t be able to come up with enough funds.
