Root Sports looked into televising KingCo football games

Root Sports recently released its debut schedule for televised high school football games, and many noticed that KingCo wasn’t represented anywhere in the lineup.

Leslie Cox, Root Sports’ director of marketing and communications, said “Root Sports had identified several KingCo games that were of interest as part of our inaugural season of High School Football Game of the Week. Unfortunately, KingCo has chosen not to be a part of the package this year.”

A source told the Times that KingCo asked for a fee to televise games and that ROOT Sports didn’t want to pay it.

When asked about the fee, Cox said, “I cannot comment on whether or not it was a fee issue. I can tell you that we are currently in discussions for future opportunities.”
