88.7 FM/The Pulse, the student radio station at East Valley Institute of Technology (EVIT), will broadcast nine East Valley high school football games during the regular season this fall, from August 25th through November 3rd. The broadcast schedule features schools throughout the East Valley, including Chandler, Gilbert, Scottsdale, Tempe, Queen Creek and Ahwatukee. It also includes a rematch of the Open Division title game (defending champion Basha visiting runner-up Saguaro), Open Division semifinalists (Chandler & Liberty), Open division qualifier (ALA-Queen Creek), 6A champion (Highland), 6A runner-up (Pinnacle), 6A semifinalist (Casteel), 5A champion (Higley) and 4A champ (ALA-Gilbert North).

The Pulse is a centerpiece of EVIT’s Radio/Audio Production program, located at the Main Campus of EVIT. It is a public radio station that showcases the talents of the students enrolled in the program. The broadcasts provide current EVIT Radio students the opportunity to gain valuable experience contributing to all aspects of the day-to-day radio operations, including as play-by-play announcers, analysts & on-site engineers. EVIT students will also handle all pre and post-production of the broadcasts.

The Pulse has established itself as the go-to place for live radio coverage of high school athletics. Pulse Sports is entering its ninth year of broadcasting high school football, boys and girls high school basketball and high school baseball and softball games.

Current high school sophomores & juniors who are interested in sports broadcasting and learning more about The Pulse and the opportunities within the Radio/Audio Production programs at EVIT, please contact Dave Juday at [email protected].
