Connecting you to Woodberry, one broadcast at a time
At WFSPN our goal is to connect you to Woodberry’s rich history and tightly knit community one broadcast at a time. Our broadcasts allow parents to watch their boys compete from miles away; they also allow alumni and friends to be a part of our community, even if they aren’t on campus.
WFSPN spans Woodberry’s campus to bring you all the school has to offer, including varsity and lower-level sports, assemblies, and guest speakers.
WFSPN has and always will be a student-run organization, devoted to allowing students to pursue their interests in sports broadcasting and journalism.
Come join us at WFSPN!
"You are listening live..."
At a football practice in the Fall of 2014, Clint Alexander approached rising senior Gray Robertson '16 with an idea: a network that would allow parents to watch their son's games without making the long trip up to Woodberry. At that moment, Woodberry Forest School Production Network, or WFSPN, was born.
Robertson, with the help of fellow seniors Win Sompayrac, Richmond Adams, Jimmy King, and Mac Hereford, established WFSPN on campus during the fall of 2015. Aside from covering sports, they wrote and produced their own original shows that gave viewers a closer look at the Woodberry community.
The next year, Jake Cooper '17 assumed the chairman position with Crawford Humphreys '18 as his second-in-command. The duo not only notched close to 7,000 viewers with their VISAA State Swim Meet broadcast, but also hosted the OneWoodberry telethon to raise money for the Amici Fund.
Tigers in the field
Gray Robertson came to Woodberry as a freshman in 2012. He broadcast his weekly sports radio show, Gray's Sports Update, to the entire campus on Tuesday evenings and was able to land high-profile guests such as former SEC commissioner Michael Slive and famed sports announcer Verne Lundquist.
In the fall of 2015, Gray Robertson took his love for sports and public speaking and started WFSPN, where he called several varsity sports including football, basketball, tennis, and golf.
Gray now attends the University of Alabama, where he is the co-host of Alabama's sports radio show, The Student Section, and a sports writer for the Student Union. Gray also serves as the color commentator for Alabama softball on the Crimson Tide Sports Network.
Mac Hereford came to Woodberry as a freshman in 2012, where he became close friends with WFSPN creator Gray Robertson. Mac was named to the WFSPN board of directors and did camera work and production for numerous WFSPN events.
