HCS Media Network Becomes RVA Sports Network

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                        October 20, 2014

 HCS Media Network Rebrands As The “RVA Sports Network”
   (Name change covers online broadcast channel, key social media components)

HCS Media, LLC announced today they have rebranded their online sports broadcast service and social media channel system from “HCS Media Network” to the “RVA Sports Network”, to better reflect the company’s array of media offerings.

“Simply put, we’ve outgrown our parent name,” said Bonnie Witham, Owner and Chief Executive Officer. “The name RVA Sports Network truly reflects the many avenues where we keep sports fans informed and engaged, from live broadcasts to nine social media channels, including the second-largest combined Twitter audience that caters to sports in the Richmond area, only behind the Richmond Times-Dispatch.”

HCS began covering sports in Hanover County in 2002, adding HanoverCountySports.net in 2011 and the popular Twitter feed @hanoversports in May, 2012. Similar websites and Twitter feeds were debuted in Henrico County a year later, followed by Chesterfield County in August, 2013.

“Our Twitter feeds, and our overall philosophies will not change,” Witham noted. “We believe in hyper-local coverage, engaging our audience with the information they want, whether through one or multiple feeds, and with 24/7 engagement.”

The RVA Sports Network will continue to set the pace as the exclusive home for online radio broadcasts of live high school sports, scheduling some 70 events throughout the current school year.  A central Web hub, RVASportsNetwork.com, will debut soon to give fans a home base with which to access all HCS Media, LLC properties.

The new name extends to YouTube, Instagram (RVASportsNet), and Vine (RVA Sports Network), and debuts live Friday when Lee-Davis faces Hanover on the High School Game of The Week. RVA Sports Network has its own Twitter feed, @TheRVASportsNet, to advise fans of future broadcasts, special social media features, and more, including increased coverage of sports within the City of Richmond, including Richmond City Public Schools.

Coverage on RVA Sports Network includes high school sports, college sports featuring VCU, Richmond, Randolph-Macon, Virginia Union, Virginia State and Richard Bland College, plus NASCAR, Atlantic 10 Women’s Basketball, the Washington Redskins’ annual training camp, and much more.
