670 The Score/Chicago Inks Renewal For NIU Football
August 28, 2012 at 4:20 AM (PT)
CBS RADIO Sports WSCR-A (670 THE SCORE)/CHICAGO will remain the flagship for NORTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY football in a deal with HUSKIES rights holder IMG COLLEGE. THE SCORE has aired HUSKIES football since 2005.
"THE SCORE has been a tremendous partner for NORTHERN ILLINOIS Athletics and a wonderful home for our football radio broadcasts over the past seven seasons," said NIU Associate VP/Dir./Athletics JEFF COMPHER. "WSCR gives us a coverage area that is unmatched in this part of the country, and NIU provides SCORE listeners with some of the most exciting college football action in the nation."
Games bumped from THE SCORE due to conflicts with other play-by-play will air on crosstown SALEM Religion WYLL-A, including the season opener on SATURDAY against IOWA.
