Since QCSportsNet started in December 2013, we have prided ourselves on providing our schools, listeners, and sponsors with high-quality, professional broadcasts. We treat the games we broadcast as the biggest, most important game of the day. We have experienced rapid growth and are seeing more schools turn to our network to air their games to their alumni, fans, and community.
We can only do this with a talented and reliable group of announcers. QCSportsNet is looking to expand, and we are looking for the next generation of broadcasters to help expand our coverage to even more schools in the Quad Cities area! QCSportsNet is a great opportunity for broadcasters to be a part of the thriving Quad Cities high school sports scene and gain valuable experience in today’s highly competitive sports journalism and broadcasting market. Our announcing alumni include rising young stars such as University of Iowa baseball radio announcer Zach Mackey and Minnesota play by play announcer of the year Mitch Widmeier. We have fun broadcasting our games, but we also place a high value on being reliable, prepared, and connected to the teams we broadcast.
Our broadcast schedule generally covers the following evenings, subject to team schedules.
- High School football – Friday evenings from late August to late October (regular season) or to mid-November (playoffs)
- High School boys basketball – Tuesday evenings (Iowa boys and girls), Thursday evenings (Illinois girls), Friday evenings (Iowa boys and girls, Illinois boys), Saturday evenings (Illinois boys) from late November to early March.
- Special events – Boys Genesis Shootout (third Saturday in December), Girls IHMVCU Shootout (first Saturday in January)
