HWTV will livestream more than 40 Harvard-Westlake athletic events with student broadcasting teams this year, beginning with the boys’ water polo game against Dana Hills at Copses Pool Sept. 16.

The Athletic Department has made steps to expand and improve HWTV for the upcoming school year.

“In previous years we’ve rented equipment, but now we bought our own equipment,” Athletic Director Jason Kelly said. “We’re definitely going to utilize that new equipment to do a lot of sports games and also some non-sporting events. HWTV is definitely expanding, and we’re excited about it.”

The broadcasts will feature pre-game and post-game analysis as well as half-time interviews conducted by student broadcasters and faculty advisers.

“I’m excited to do HWTV sports because it was an enjoyable experience last year, and I am looking forward to doing it again,” student broadcaster Matthew Gross ’19 said. “I like being assigned to a variety of roles, and it is great to have the opportunity to try many different jobs. I have become better at filming and working with the technology. I have learned a lot about sports broadcasting.”
