The VisitNich.com Bowl now has a television deal to air both games on Wazoo Sports Network.
At last Thursday’s Nicholasville Tourism board meeting, the board voted to give Wazoo Sports exclusive television rights to air both football games.
On Friday, Aug. 19, Jessamine County will host the first VisitNich.com Bowl at East Jessamine.
East Jessamine will play Tates Creek at 6:30 p.m., and West Jessamine will play Somerset immediately after, around 8:45 p.m.
The bowl game has been in the works since last fall, and final pieces are starting to fall into place.
At the meeting, representatives from Wazoo Sports discussed covering the games and district athletic director Ken Cox updated the board on the bowl games’ progress.
Part of the agreement with Wazoo Sports is that Nicholasville Tourism will receive three 30-second commercials during each game, for a total of six commercials free of charge.
