WESTERN OREGON UNIVERSITY is launching a radio network to carry play-by-play of the school's football games. The WOLVES RADIO NETWORK consists of KCCS, LLC Religion KPJC-A/SALEM, BICOASTAL MEDIA Talk KLOO-A/ALBANY and MOUNTAIN BROADCASTING Talk KOHI-A/ST. HELENS; the school also lists KMVS-A/MONMOUTH, a station that is not listed as a full-power FCC-licensed station. The games will also be streamed on MIDVALLEYSPORTS.NET. Associate Athletic Director RUSS BLUNCK and BEAR BLUNCK will call the action.
"I have wanted to have a radio network for quite some time, and the Mid-Valley folks really helped get the idea up and running," said RUSS BLUNCK. "We got a late start on it this summer, but we really look forward to growing the network in the coming years. WESTERN OREGON is truly 'OREGON's Team.' We have kids from all over the state like no other university in OREGON. We think we can eventually have radio stations on board with the WOLVES RADIO NETWORK from all across OREGON."
