A new year means new opportunities and this is especially true at the MAB and for our members.
We were proud to announce, recently, that the MAB worked with the MHSAA to amend their video streaming rules to allow broadcasters to carry local high school games, live.
Broadcasters can now distribute live video of regular-season games from schools that are National Federation of High School (NFHS) members. That’s about 70% of schools in the state.
Being able to cover these games is important not only for serving your local communities, but it also provides a potential new source of revenue for the coming year and beyond for Michigan TV and radio stations.
With the new opportunity, the MAB wants to help your stations deliver a video streaming product that is at the top of its game.
On Monday, January 24th, the MAB is joining state broadcasters associations from across the country to offer a free program to our members. The Community Broadcasters Summit is a full-day video streaming conference that helps broadcasters develop and enhance their video streaming skills.

MAB President Sam Klemet sat down with Vance Harrison, Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters President, to talk about the summit. The OAB is hosting the event in Durant, Oklahoma. MAB members can attend virtually or in-person.

We hope you will attend and hope you are able to take advantage of the new MHSAA policies.
