Some key questions regarding media, and in particular, TV coverage of NCHSAA games, will come up this week during the NCHSAA Spring meetings today and Wednesday….They will look over all of the proposals today and then take everything to a vote on Wednesday….NCHSAA offices are located in Chapel Hill and here is the word coming in state-wide, from Raleigh……Time Warner Cable is gone and that leaves a huge void, since TWC was a major partner with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association/NCHSAA…..The move from TWC to Spectrum/Charter Communications, takes away much from the NCHSAA media table and on the table, as the meetings move on this week, are these questions and proposals…..

Time Warner Cable, the NCHSAA’s exclusive media partner, will shut down the very channel that has televised a number of NCHSAA regular season games and almost all state championships.
The Time Warner/Spectrum Sports SportsChannel closes this month, leaving the NCHSAA in a lurch and without one of its biggest partners – media or otherwise.
Who will televise this spring’s state championships – particularly the ones scheduled in June (baseball and softball)? What about next fall?
Without the partnership in place, what becomes of the live-televised-football-only-on-Thursday rule? So much has changed in the last few years, so does the rise of streaming affect what the NCHSAA wants to do going forward?
What becomes of the archive of state championship broadcasts, which are stored on the TWC Carolinas website?
