Segments include:

  • Inspire, which highlights inspiring stories within the district
  • Ignite which focuses on surprising and ‘awesome’ activities
  • What’s the Story, which discusses behind the scenes stories
  • The Concession Stand, featuring short sports related segments
  • Headlines which targets traditional news stories
