News 8 Now Sports introduces new Sports Spotlight segment

Sports Spotlight Premiere

With spring sports either canceled or postponed due to COVID-19, our local high school and college spring athletes don’t have the opportunity to play the games they love. So News 8 Now Sports wants to give those athletes a chance to be recognized in a new segment, Sports Spotlight.

This daily segment will shine a light on one of our local senior spring athletes for all they’ve accomplished, but in order to pull this off, we need your help.

You at home have the chance to nominate a senior athlete to be recognized in our Sports Spotlight. Whether you’re a coach, family member or friend, you can send Sports Director Ken Kosirowski your athlete nominations to or fill out the form below. Be sure to include why you think the athlete deserves to be nominated, details on their accomplishments, and how you think their involvement in sports has helped shape them as people. You can also include any photos and videos of your athlete that you’d like Ken to include on-air.

Despite these uncertain times, sports can shine a positive light on those in our community. So let’s get those nominations in and start shining that light once again!
