Welcome to North Georgia SportsLink
Welcome to the North Georgia SportsLink, a multimedia/broadcast company, covers high school sports in the Georgia 400 North Corridor.
NGSL provides live football and basketball play-by-play coverage for both Dawson and Lumpkin county high schools.
Since our launch in 2014, NGSL has reached more than 3 million via Facebook and Twitter – all organic. In 2017, our website reached more than 30,000 unique visitors, 125,061-page views and 800,000 hits.
The great thing about internet broadcasting – it is truly worldwide. From Europe to Australia to Alaska and everywhere in between, NGSL has listeners every Friday night. On average, we’ll pull in 500 listeners a night.
“With digital media, studies show that readers want the information and opportunity pushed to them with an easy click of the mouse or tap of the screen instead of searching the internet for the story,” Co-founder Tim Whitmire said.
Founders Whitmire and Wilson bring a combined 50-plus years of newspaper and broadcast experience, providing best in sports coverage possible – with no pay wall. Yes, it’s free!
“We have been blown away by the support North Georgia has given us,” Wilson said. “Our main goal was to become a source for our communities. It’s become the source for high school sports coverage.”
The History …
Tim and Bo, commonly known as “The Tim & Bo Show,” began working together in 1996 on WDGR AM 1210. In 1997, Wilson and Whitmire along with WDGR paired with Alltel Channel 4 football to simulcast a game of the week and NGCSU Basketball.
The two have won several awards from the Georgia Association of Broadcasters, including two of the their top awards in 2005, a GABBY for the Best Sportscast and Best Sports Story.
“When you sit down and think about it, it’s hard to believe Tim and I have been a part of a region as a team for more than 20 years,” Wilson said. “Over the years we’ve developed a great following and want to continue our service to the communities of the 400 North Corridor. So far, so good!”
