About CrossCom Sports Network
When we began in 2008, Andrew and Tim had been broadcasting together for two years in various venues -- a Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference Game of the Week, Center Grove football and the Indiana North-South All-Star Classic for Comcast cable and Hamilton Heights, Tipton and Sheridan games for WJCY-FM. However, both called Hancock County home and believed strongly in bringing professionally-broadcast live sports to their home community for the first time in nearly 30 years.
CCSN's first webcast went online in August 2008, the opening of the Indiana Football Show. Since, CCSN has broadcast games from throughout Hancock County, the Hoosier Heritage Conference and Central Indiana in many different sports.
Andrew Smith is the owner of CCSN and the lead play-by-play announcer for football and boys basketball games, as well as other sporting events. He is also the content editor for HancockCountySports.com.

He also called the play-by-play for the statewide broadcast of the North-South All-Star Football Classic for Indiana Cable Network in 2007. Smith has broadcast for WTIU-TV in Bloomington, WBIW-AM in Bedford, Regional Radio Sports Network, Comcast Cable and the Indiana Cable Network. An award-winning journalist, he has been published in many newspapers and magazines, including the Greencastle Banner-Graphic, Daily Reporter, Crawfordsville Journal-Review, Terre Haute Tribune-Star, Indianapolis Star website, Indiana Football Digest, Hoosier Basketball Magazine and more.
