CCSU Sports Stick With Fox Sports Radio 1410/Hartford
August 8, 2012 at 4:40 AM (PT)
CENTRAL CONNECTICUT STATE UNIVERSITY football and men's basketball will remain on CLEAR CHANNEL Sports WPOP-A (FOX SPORTS RADIO 1410)/HARTFORD under a new four-year deal that sees all BLUE DEVILS football games aired on the station for the first time rather than the select number of games previously broadcast due to conflicts with NEW YORK YANKEES baseball.
Men's basketball will also air on sister Sports WAVZ-A (ESPN RADIO 1300)/NEW HAVEN. BRUCE BIEL returns to call the games, with MARC ROBBINS handling analysis for both sports.
"We are extremely excited to continue our relationship with WPOP, and to make FOX SPORTS RADIO 1410 The Home of the BLUE DEVILS," CCSU Dir./Athletics PAUL SCHLICKMANN said. "Partnering with CLEAR CHANNEL in this endeavor is a home run for us. As a local team in NEW BRITAIN it is important to have a presence on the airwaves in CONNECTICUT, and this partnership affords us that opportunity. At the same time, being able to stream every one of our football and men's basketball games on iHEARTRADIO means that BLUE DEVIL fans can log onto their computer or smart phone and listen to us anywhere in the world. It is an exciting day."
"We're excited about our continued partnership with CENTRAL CONNECTICUT STATE UNIVERSITY and to be the home of CCSU football and men's basketball for the next four years," said CCM+E VP and Market Manager STEPHEN HONEYCOMB. "Fans, alumni and students will continue to hear their CCSU BLUE DEVILS on FOX SPORTS RADIO 1410 and iHEARTRADIO."
