who we are

The WE ARE Network is a hyper-local online media company. We promote community spirit and highlight all of the great things about small-town living by spotlighting the two main pillars in any thriving community - the schools and family-run businesses.

what we do

While we may be best known for live-streaming high school sports, we cover many other school and community events. It's exciting to see folks come together to support the students, schools, and towns. Incredibly, we've live-streamed well over 1,500 events since 2017. We are watched a lot and recently surpassed the two million views mark!

how it works

When a new school is brought into the WE ARE Network, they get their own Facebook page along with their own dedicated home announcers. We cover as many events as possible for just that school! There is no cost to the viewer nor the school. Our local sponsors supply the fuel to keep it going. The events are available on both Facebook and our website, www.thewearenetwork.com .

Bob Headshot

our story

The WE ARE Network, founded by Bob Rombach, began in Grantsburg, WI. Bob had worked in radio previously, calling the high school games for Grantsburg and surrounding communities.

In 2012, he moved away but returned to the area five years later to find the radio stations were no longer consistently covering the games. He set out to bring local high school sports back to the fans who could not attend the games. He created a Facebook page called "WE ARE Grantsburg" and started live-streaming football and volleyball games that fall.

It was a huge hit, and things quickly snowballed from there. The WE ARE Network serves ten schools/communities, including Grantsburg, Siren, Frederic, Luck, Unity, St. Croix Falls, Cameron, Osceola, Amery, & Ellsworth.
