The Badger football broadcast team was recognized with a Badger Pride Award during the January School Board Meeting. Our district as well as the community of Arkadelphia appreciates the Arkadelphia Badger TV Football broadcast team bringing us Badger Football every Friday night in the fall. They produced 14 football broadcasts during the 2021 season for the Arkadelphia Badgers. The season included six home games from Badger Stadium and eight away games all across the state.
Dr. Jeff Root has been a part of the broadcast team for 34 years. He first joined the radio booth with Rex Nelson in 1984. He took a few years off for graduate school and has continued faithfully since then. The broadcast now includes video production as well as radio. We appreciate Dr. Root and his support of the Badgers!
Thank you to Jim Rothwell, Ouachita Baptist University Assistant Professor of Accounting and Assistant Dean to the School of Business, for providing his talents with statistics and insights into the Badgers’ performance.
The broadcast team consists of members from the Ouachita Baptist University Sports Digital Network, the student sports media production arm of the Rogers Department of Communications. We are so grateful for Chris Babb, our former APSD Communications Director. Though he is now an OBU Communications Instructor and the Director of Sports Media Productions at Ouachita, he has continued to be a driving force in the Badger TV broadcast on-screen and off-screen.
We appreciate the broadcast partner of Dr. Root this season, Chase Hartwell, for bringing exciting commentary to those listening each week.
Behind the scenes, Coleman Callan has played the vital role of cameraman.
We have been so fortunate to have these people bring us Badger football action with excellence. Thank you for all the time and preparation you give to the Arkadelphia Badger TV Broadcast!
