MONTGOMERY—Auburn City Schools entered into a contract with convicted felon, Mike Hubbard, in July, giving him exclusive rights to broadcast Auburn school sports for free.
The school system rejected proposals from larger stations, who offered to pay for the rights. A comparison of the plans show Tiger Communications, with a broadcast signal of 25,000 watts, and the biggest coverage area in the county, offering $11,500 per year, for five years, for a total of $57,500.
