"After so many years in the broadcasting industry, I demand the best from myself and those around me so it is exciting for me to join Student Sports, which has established itself as the national leader in high school sports in a variety of mediums,"Braunstein said. "I think what has always drawn me to high school sports is the fascinating stories behind each of the student-athletes.

I'm a storyteller and "Cal-Hi Sports Bay Area", as well as other shows to be developed by the new Student Sports television division will use the medium to paint compelling portraits of these often-inspirational boys and girls. I believe that stories combining the excitement of high school sports with the "behind the scenes "human element has tremendous drawing power for regional and national audiences,"concluded Braunstein.

Among the numerous advertisers who have committed to the program are PepsiCo as a title sponsor, Chevron, 24 Hour Fitness, Fremont Hospital, Valley Athletic, and the Reickas Center.
