CUMULUS Rock WRQQ (97.1 RQQ)/NASHVILLE inks a deal to carry VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY football and basketball under a three year deal with VANDERBILT ISP SPORTS that starts this FALL. The school's games were previously heard on CITADEL Sports WGFX (104.5 THE ZONE).
"We have appreciated the long run with our current flagship station," said VANDERBILT Vice Chancellor DAVID WILLIAMS. "But as we looked at what would be VANDERBILT's best option going forward, we found a terrific new partner with CUMULUS MEDIA and 97.1 RQQ. Their management is excited to welcome our programming and brings a very strong commitment to showcase COMMODORE athletics. Our fans are going to be very pleased that our games will be 97.1 RQQ’s top sports priority."
"We are thrilled to partner with such a prestigious institute like VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY," added CUMULUS VP/GM MARK SULLIVAN. "We’re excited and proud to be a flagship station for VANDERBILT sports and to be associated with the premier NCAA Conference."
