From the blog: we want YOU to choose our next high school broadcast

Blog PhotoUPDATE Tuesday 2/14 9:45 a.m.:

Twice in the past 24 hours we've seen vote totals for two games drop. This is because the third party system that's running our poll is detecting votes that were cast automatically and not by a human. Your best way to remedy this is to just keep voting legally.  Thanks for your understanding.


UPDATE Wednesday afternoon:

Due to a high level of interest, we're opening the poll on Friday morning. Get ready to vote!


Original story Wednesday morning:

A lot goes into choosing which high school basketball games you hear on WDWS each season. We try to do as many games and feature as many teams as possible.  But our commitment to airing Illini sports makes that tough.  And so without fail each year, we get this comment dozens of times from fans...

"When are you going to do MY team's game?"

Well, we hear you. So this year for our final regular season broadcast on Friday the 17th, we're letting YOU choose where we go. Yup, the gas is in the van and the equipment is packed. We just need a destination.

Starting Monday at 8:30 a.m. and running through Wednesday at 3 p.m., head to and vote for which game you want to hear.  Here's a look at the games you can choose from:

  • Armstrong at Bismarck-Henning
  • Arthur-Lovington Atwood-Hammond at Cerro Gordo-Bement
  • Central Catholic at Mahomet-Seymour
  • Cissna Park at Paxton Buckley Loda
  • Georgetown-Ridge Farm at Chrisman
  • Meridian at Tuscola
  • Milford at Hoopeston Area
  • Normal West at Danville
  • Peoria at Centennial
  • Manual at Central
  • Richwoods at Urbana
  • Ridgeview at Blue Ridge
  • Saint Joseph-Ogden at Monticello
  • Schlarman at Oakwood
  • Westville at Salt Fork

This is your chance to rally your fanbase, earn some bragging rights, and have your game heard throughout East Central Illinois and worldwide through streaming. Plus you can listen to the game on-demand.

Once again, voting starts Monday at our print/radio co-branded website wdws.comDon't vote won't count!  Oh...did we mention you can vote an unlimited amount of times?  We encourage you to stuff the ballot box!

Thanks for your support of our high school broadcasts, and let's have some fun with this!
