Football, Basketball State Championships Returning to Local TV Across Illinois

ILLINOIS — Southern Illinois high school football and basketball fans have been waiting for this for a few years, but it’s finally happening. The IHSA football and basketball state championships will be returning to TV downstate.

Locally, WSIL in Carterville will carry the games on their main channel or one of their sub-channels. And the station’s Sports Director Darren Kinnard says it’s an exciting time to be a high school sports fan around Illinois.

The first show to air on the new statewide network will be the 2019 Football Playoffs Pairing Show coming up on October 26th.
