Sports Talk With Frank Halvorson Goes National On MaxPreps

slide3-sports_talk_with_frank_halvorson_goes_national_on_maxpreps.pngAmador County – TSPN Sports made two advances this football season, to supplement its usual Game of the Week coverage, including the creation of the weekly TSPN Sports Talk with Frank Halvorson in October, and the affiliation with the national sports website, in November. The show began with an October 7th broadcast, with Halvorson introducing the show as nameless, but it soon became the AM Live Sports show. A month later, it became TSPN Sports Talk, with Frank Halvorson. On the show, Halvorson talks about the TSPN TV “Game of the Week,” which typically broadcasts the week after that game. Halvorson interviews local coaches from Amador and Argonaut High Schools, and talks about what’s happening with the local teams. Games of the Week included football games with the local Mustangs from Argonaut in Jackson and the Thundering Herd from Amador in Sutter Creek, playing in non-league and league games. Local volleyball was featured in one game of the week earlier in the season, and the season ended with the “Big Game” matchup between Amador and Argonaut, to end the Mother Lode League 2009-2010 football season. On November 11th, TSPN began participating as an affiliate of, a national sports website that covers a variety of sports. The partnership includes a posting on with a link to TSPN Sports Talk with Frank Halvorson. The 8-minute Sports Talk show is uploaded to the MaxPreps website and posted in the video area. Sports Talk airs live every Wednesday at 7:30 a.m., on Comcast Channel 7, and on Volcano Channel 5, and it also airs live in streaming video at Sports Talk can also be seen in archives on the TSPN website, listed under “Local Sports.” TSPN production assistant for Sports Talk, Alan Sprenkel, said “with the football season over, Frank is going to be moving into the basketball season.” The basketball season started November 29th, he said, so starting on Wednesday (December 9th), Halvorson’s shows will cover the new season’s sports. TSPN Sports can be found on MaxPreps by clicking the “video” link on the right, searching California, and then either Amador or Argonaut as the preferred school.
