TRENTON, N.J., Aug. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On September 1st, 2017, high school sports fans across New Jersey will now have one place to go for game highlights, with the ability to view content via a free mobile app, and on multiple social media sites.
JerseySportsZone.com (JSZ) will be the first site solely focused on premium video content of all NJ varsity boys and girls sports, including game highlights, features on players and coaches and the latest college recruiting news.
"While JSZ kicks off with the football season, virtually all sports, both boys and girls, will receive coverage, including schools in the southern and western regions of our state," says Rich Chrampanis, founder of Jersey Sports Zone and a former sportscaster at an ABC affiliate in Myrtle Beach, SC. "There are great teams, exciting games, and amazing athletes all around New Jersey to be highlighted via this new site."
Full-time, multimedia journalists and experienced freelancers will blanket the state and post video highlights and interviews to JSZ shortly after select games. Social media plays an important part of the mix, as the journalists will post photos, scores, and updates throughout the games.
"The new paradigm in viewing sports is the small screen; that's where kids, and more often now their parents, get their information. JSZ picks up with video where the changing world of newspaper coverage has left off," added Chrampanis.
For the past three years, the website, Shore Sports Zone, has covered high school sports action in Monmouth and Ocean counties. The site received over 3.5 million views and 2.5 million on YouTube. Social media followers also climbed substantially over those three years. That site has now grown into Jersey Sports Zone's statewide format.
As thousands of views turned into millions, corporate and local sponsorships grew too, allowing the site to expand. Like most online businesses concepts, strong advertising support is essential; In this case, for enhanced coverage of high school sports in a changing media environment.
