Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) April 21, 2007
High school sports enthusiasts at the IHSAA Boys State Basketball Finals cheered on the debut of High School Sports - The Magazine Central Indiana on March 24, 2007. The magazine franchise owners, Phil and Jennifer Temple, are excited about giving central Indiana communities a high-quality magazine devoted entirely to high school sports.
Indiana Governor Mitchell Daniels, Jr., who attended the basketball finals welcomes the innovative magazine to Indiana. "Although Indiana is home to the Indianapolis 500, the Indianapolis Colts, and many other renowned sports organizations, we take greatest pride in our student-athletes," he said.
High School Sports - The Magazine Central Indiana is free to the community and draws both regional and national corporate sponsors. Articles and columns in the publication feature:
- Insightful information about all aspects of high school sports.
- Human-interest stories about everything from bands to basketball.
- Riveting reports of local high school sporting events.
Bill Benner, one of the most well-known and well-respected Indiana sports columnists, is contributing to the magazine. Other writers from central Indiana communities are encouraged to participate.
With its community-focused content and great writing, sponsors and readers alike are quickly embracing the publication. Phil and Jennifer Temple are thrilled with the results.
"We wanted to start a business that would be exciting to the community, something that would reward them," said Phil Temple. "Part of that is finding central Indiana companies to sponsor the magazine and reach out to families. It's a win-win for everyone."
The Temples are distributing 20,000 copies of the magazine per issue as well as an online digital version of the magazine. The full-color, glossy, 68-page publication can be found at Marsh and Blockbuster, and is also being distributed to schools and athletic directors. High School Sports - The Magazine Central Indiana is also finding its way to local restaurants and other family-friendly locations over the next 60 days.
