EVIT Radio to Broadcast East Valley High School Basketball Games

88.7 FM, The Pulse, the student radio station at the East Valley Institute of Technology (EVIT), will broadcast nine East Valley high school boys & girls basketball games during the 2021-2022 regular season, from December 2nd through February 8th. The broadcast schedule highlights schools throughout the East Valley, including Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Ahwatukee and Queen Creek. It also includes last year’s boys 6A state champ, (Sunnyslope), a 5A girls semifinalist (Gilbert), last year’s 4A girls state champion (Seton Catholic) and a girls 4A semifinalist (Mesquite).

The Pulse is a product of EVIT’s Radio/Audio Production class, located at the Main Campus of EVIT. It’s a public radio station that showcases the talents of the students enrolled in the program. The Pulse was also recently named the “Best High School Radio Station” in the nation at the 2020-2021 John Drury High School Radio Awards. The broadcasts provide current EVIT Radio students the opportunity to gain valuable experience contributing as play-by-play announcers, analysts & onsite 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 in its seventh year of broadcasting high school football, boys and girls high school basketball and high school baseball and softball games. This fall, Pulse Sports just completed a 10-game broadcast schedule of regular season high school football games throughout the East Valley.
