Michigan Almanac: November 21, 2008





It's like being in sports heaven for Ross Maghielse. Maghielse is co-owner of Michigan Sports Radio.com and specializes in streaming high school sporting events over the Internet. More specifically, Maghielse is the director of broadcast activities for eastern Michigan. Handling west Michigan is the other co-owner, Brock Konkle. It's a statewide operation. Both are natives of Rockford. Maghielse is attending Oakland University in Rochester, 30 miles northwest of Detroit. I worked for the Rockford Independent newspaper when I was a senior and junior in high school as a stringer covering high school sports," Maghielse said. "I had a column. Brock came up with the idea of starting Rams.radio.net to broadcast Rockford High School games online. He contacted me about helping him with this. I was in school and knew all of the coaches and the ADs. So we started Rams radio. We did one year of covering just Rockford sports (2005-06). "We got a very good reception for the first year and a lot of interest. We also had some other schools start calling us. So the 2006-07 school year is when we started Michigan Sports Radio.com. That's what we expanded to. We'd cover six to eight games every Friday night during football and basketball season. We were statewide, but still mostly in Grand Rapids." Maghielse then moved to southeastern Michigan and started covering schools in that area... Michigan: Radio Broadcasts Hit Internet (Mon, 11/17)
