Georgia Public Broadcasting is kicking off a new division, GPB Sports, according to a statement from the network today (Aug. 25). GPB had “record ratings” during last year’s state high school championship football games, it said. The division will create new programs across all platforms. There’s GPB Sports Central, a 30-minute weekly show; GPB Sports Central XL, a live video chat among coaches, fans, writers and bloggers; Football Fridays in Georgia, the game of the week featuring a pre-game show, scores from around the state, and a post-game program; and, a redesigned site with on-demand of top games, pages for more than 400 state high schools, rankings, sports blogs and live chats.
