NASHVILLE - We've been continuing to follow the story about TCAP results being delayed. Now, Governor Haslam is weighing in. On Wednesday, the governor said the state Department of Education was being cautious when they decided to delay the release of the scores to school districts. Schools across the state were notified about the delay. Systems received the scores last Friday, but for some, it was after the school year. Murfreesboro City Schools were among the many systems across the state that were granted a waiver to send home report cards without the scores. Rutherford County Schools asked for that same waiver, but since the scores were received in time, they will go home with report cards today (Thursday). The governor, speaking at the State Capitol with reporters Wednesday, said they wanted to make sure the information sent out was correct and erred on the side of caution.
Blue Raider Sports Properties, a division of Learfield Sports, is happy to announce that a three-year extension has been added to the broadcast agreement with NewsRadio WGNS Radio. The affiliation between Blue Raider Athletics and WGNS dates back to 1947 and, for the biggest part of those 68 years, has been a broadcast outlet for Middle Tennessee. The new agreement will mean that Blue Raider Network programming will be heard on NewsRadio WGNS through at least 2018.
