Our commitment

WCPO.com and 9 On Your Side are dedicated to bringing you the best high school sports coverage. The addition of preps reporter Mike Dyer gives us the foremost authority in Cincinnati-area high school sports. You’ll see him covering the big games, telling stories and breaking the latest news about teams and athletes in our area.

We also have continued our partnership with Tristate Football. They’ll once again provide stories, videos, photos and scores from games along with features and previews to get you ready for upcoming action.

On the television side, Ken Broo, John Popovich and Keenan Singleton will bring you the highlights of the big games throughout the week and a roundup of Friday night football action.

Our high school sports Facebook page allows fans to be engaged with the preps community and keep up with the latest from Mike Dyer and WCPO. We have begun Facebook Live sessions as we approach the fall sports season and will continue with them from games we cover. And a weekly podcast brings you insight from our experts as well as interviews with local coaches and players.

We will also have contributors helping with the coverage, including well known sports reporters John Fay and Tom Ramstetter.

About Mike Dyer
Mike Dyer

Mike Dyer has been covering high school sports in Cincinnati since 2004.

An Akron native, he got his first taste of big-time high school sports when he covered LeBron James and his St. Vincent-St. Mary basketball (and football) teams while in college. 

Locally, he has served in a number of roles covering high school sports, including preps reporter, various high school sports editor positions and recruiting reporter. He boasts almost 22,000 Twitter followers, proof of the reach and authority he has established as a high school sports expert. You can follow him @MikeDyer.

He has also covered other sports in Cincinnati, including the 2015 Major League All-Star Game, the Bengals as well as history pieces on Crosley Field and the Cincinnati Gardens. But he says his main passion is high school sports.

Mike lives in Bridgetown with his wife and two children.
