School is officially back in session, and that means sports! The NCTV17 sports crew is busy making preparations for the return of “Naperville Sports Weekly,” which kicks off season eight at 6:30 pm. Sunday, Aug. 31.
This fast-paced half-hour show brings viewers the highlights, interviews and scores from all the boys and girls varsity sports across the six Naperville-area high schools. This season Justin Zipser takes over as anchor for the show.
“Working on Naperville Sports Weekly as a reporter over the last few years has shown me the incredible passion of Naperville sports fans, and I’m extremely excited to be the show’s new host,” Zipser said. “We have a talented crew that’s ready to bring you the best prep athletics our city has to offer.”
In addition to highlights, interviews and the Play of the Week, NCTV17 is excited to bring viewers a new weekly “feature” segment and four new monthly segments: Where Are They Now, Player Profiles, Team Profiles, and Vintage Moments.
The award-winning program can be found both on-air and online. Tune in daily or find your school’s highlights at NCTV17.com. All highlights and segments also can be found on our YouTube channel NCTV17Sports.
