iHEARTMEDIA Sports WRNL-A (FOX SPORTS 910)/RICHMOND will continue as RICHMOND affiliate for VIRGINIA TECH football under a four-year extension of the present agreement between the station and rights holder IMG COLLEGE's VIRGINIA TECH IMG SPORTS NETWORK, and HOKIES football and men's basketball will also air on sister Classic Rock W241AP (96.1 THE PLANET)/RICHMOND.
“We’ve been partners with VIRGINIA TECH and IMG for 10 years, and adding sports coverage on an FM signal for the first time is a great way to enhance our partnership,” said iHEARTMEDIA Area President of VIRGINIA RICK GREEN. “In addition to broadcasting VIRGINIA TECH’s games on FOX SPORTS 910, now we can bring our coverage to even more HOKIE fans in the region through 96.1 THE PLANET.”
“VIRGINIA TECH is thrilled to continue our tremendous partnership with iHEARTMEDIA RICHMOND and FOX SPORTS 910,” said VIRGINIA TECH IMG SPORTS NETWORK Dir. of Broadcast Services JON LAASER. “We are continually looking for ways to provide improved sound and reach to HOKIE Nation in RICHMOND. Our new relationship with 96.1 THE PLANET will achieve that, and we are excited for HOKIES to experience VIRGINIA TECH broadcasts that way in the years to come.”
