Advertising

In today’s world, youth, high school, college and amateur sports budgets are tight, and some of the best teams and athletes can’t get the exposure they deserve, forcing them to resort to unsatisfactory broadcasts, videos and other multimedia services, or forgoing those services altogether. When they do get those services, they are often provided by unpaid or underpaid groups such as students or parents who get distracted, can’t follow the action or can’t figure out how to use the equipment, or all-volunteer local access stations with sloppy camera work and cringe-inducing announcers. With your support, LSP can bring the best athletes, games and teams to a worldwide audience while saving those teams money. You can advertise on any scheduled broadcast or article, or request coverage of a specific team in your service area. LSP’s traffic has risen substantially over the past three years, with double the hits in 2015 than the previous three years combined and even more hits each subsequent year. Broadcast audiences have peaked at over 1,000 viewers for the biggest events.
