"The viewers in central Indiana are going to love this channel," said RTV 6 Vice President and General Manager Larry Blackerby "We are going to have high school sports of all types. They'll get high school football, high school basketball, high school volleyball, high school bowling. You name it and we're going to have it on this channel. Then you throw in the college sports from across the state; it's a wonderful opportunity."

RTV 6.2 will feature a variety of sporting events from the Indiana High School Athletic Association, University of Indianapolis, Franklin College and Wabash College.

Beginning this fall, RTV 6.2 will also feature a live Friday Night Football Game of the Week.
