Low Country Radio is starting a high school sports program focusing on Liberty County schools.
The first stream will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, and then on May 14 from Chilli’s restaurant.
The area’s first live high school coach’s show will then move to all Monday nights at 7, starting Aug. 13.
Low Country broadcast Bradwell football and basketball this school year.
The focus will be high school football, but there will be other topics. For example, on Tuesday’s show, Bradwell track coaches Brian Williams and Oral Davis will discuss their state track meet preparations.
To hear the show, you can go to Chilli’s lounge or tune in to Lowcountryradio.com and click on the Bradwell icon.
Bradwell’s Ross Couch, Liberty County’s Kirk Warner and Long County’s JT Pollock have agreed be to on the show. Low Country is asking other teams, such as Richmond Hill and McIntosh Academy, to join in.
Low Country’s Charlie Moon will host the show, along with John Wood and Simon Steele. Wood, a former Bradwell coach, is an area fixture, having coached and covered high school sports for media outlets such as WSAV, Coastal Courier and In the Game Magazine. Steele has coached and mentored youth on and off the court for years. He has run a AAU program and mentored many youth into college scholarships. He also ran track at Mercer.
Moon, a Bradwell special needs teacher, started in sports media in South Carolina, working with WOLO-ABC in Columbia as a University of South Carolina School of Journalism student. He also hosts Liberty Live — Keepin’ it Positive, a live simulcast/podcast promoting positive news from LCSS.
Moon worked with Chilli’s to set up the show.
“I know this will work,” he said.
Lowcountryradio.com, owned by Freddy and Cuyler Howell, is an Internet station out of Richmond Hill. The Howells began it to give military families in Richmond Hill the chance to hear their sons and daughters’ games on radio while serving abroad. For Bradwell, Moon handled color analysis. Steele joined Moon on the basketball broadcasts.
Moon said they hope to be able to take on-air calls by August.
“We’re working on it, but the bottom line is this, we’re gonna have a blast doing something never done before in this area,” he said.
