SoCon announces 2021 regional football TV schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The Southern Conference (SoCon) has announced their 2021 regional football TV schedule, which includes a total of nine contests set for broadcast.

All broadcasts will air through the network of Nexstar stations: ECBD (Charleston), WGHP (Greensboro/High Point), WJHL (Johnson City), WMYT (Charlotte), WWCW (Lynchburg/Roanoke), WYCW (Greenville/Spartanburg/Asheville), and WBTW in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. WMUB (Macon), Mercer University Broadcasting, which is not a Nexstar station, will also air select contests. The games will also be streamed live on ESPN+.

“We are pleased to be partnering with Nexstar again to provide additional television exposure for our football programs in various markets in our footprint,” SoCon Commissioner Jim Schaus said. “We are excited to be able to expand our overall coverage this year. This coverage is vital to our member schools and the conference overall.”
