“Once again, with the assistance of Integris Health and our other corporate sponsors, we are pleased to be offering the greatest coverage area for high school football games than at any other time in the history of Oklahoma broadcasting,” said Brady Brus, /Thunder TV President and General Manager. “Over the past year, our already unmatched footprint has grown even larger by Thunder TV being added to the DirecTV line up in the Tulsa market. There hasn’t been a time in the history of Oklahoma broadcasting when this many games have been featured in the regular season reaching as many people as we do.”
/Thunder TV has once again chosen to air marquee matchups from small and large school classes and from rural and metro communities. “I think we are unique in that we don’t just offer a handful of Tulsa teams and Edmond teams as others have in the past,” said Brus. “We have some unbelievable matchups.
