Thanks for visiting our website!
The Canandaigua National Bank & Trust High School Sports Show started in 2003 on WHTK-AM and is the only radio talk show in the Rochester area that covers Section V sports. It can be heard live every Saturday at noon on SPORTS 1280 WHTK in the Rochester area and also on the Web at www.whtk.com. The show features interviews with coaches and players, previews and highlights the biggest games each season and honors "Athletes of the Week." It also tackles the issues facing teenage athletes, such as proper nutrition and recovery from injury and how to balance academics and athletics.
Since 2003, more than 2,000 coaches and athletes have been on the show. A special thanks goes to Canandaigua National Bank & Trust. Without its continued support, area athletes and coaches wouldn't have a chance to be showcased on the radio.
