High School Sports

Kornblut, football and 'Sportstalk'

The South Carolina Radio Network’s “High School Football Scoreboard” returns for another season at 10 p.m. Friday.

It will be carried on 20 stations throughout the state including WVOC-AM 560 in Columbia and WPUB-FM 102.7 in Camden. Phil Kornblut and Jim Baxter of scvarsity.com will co-host the two-hour show.

As usual there will be final scores from every game in the state as well as reports from the games and interviews with the coaches.

Kornblut, whose recruting column appears in The State each Monday, and SCRN are observing a milestone this week. It marks the 25th year of “Sportstalk,” which Kornblut hosts weeknights 6-8 p.m.

The show’s network has grown from 11 stations to 23. Look for even more expansion in the future since the South Carolina Network was purchased by Learfield Communications this summer.
