Touring the All-Stars

FOX Sports Ohio, in partnership with the Cleveland Cavaliers, organized a “Behind the Scenes Production Tour” for 16 students at Quicken Loans Arena in late March.

The students were members of the Columbus After-School All-Stars, an organization that provides free, quality comprehensive after-school programs that keep children safe and help them succeed in school and in life.

The tour, led by Quicken Loans Arena’s Dave Dombrowski, covered areas of The Q such as: the QTV control room and the FOX Sports Ohio production truck. After the tour, the students stayed to watch the Cavaliers’ victory against the Detroit Pistons!
