IMG SPORTS' VIRGINIA TECH IMG SPORTS NETWORK has changed affiliates in ROANOKE but stays within the CLEAR CHANNEL cluster, moving from Adult Hits WSFF (106.1 STEVE FM) to AC WSNV (SUNNY 93.5) for the 2011-12 season. SUNNY will carry all football and men's basketball games plus ACC Tournament games and "TECH TALK LIVE." STEVE FM is among the stations being spun off by CLEAR CHANNEL through the ALOHA STATION TRUST.
"We are proud of our partnership with the CLEAR CHANNEL team in ROANOKE and look forward to taking our programming to another quality station like 93.5 SUNNY FM," said VIRGINIA TECH IMG SPORTS NETWORK GM RICK BARAKAT. "The signal and format are a great fit with our loyal fans throughout the ROANOKE area."
"We are excited about our continued partnership with VIRGINIA TECH Athletics and IMG," said SUNNY GM DAVE CARWILE. "VIRGINIA TECH has a loyal fan base in the ROANOKE area and one of the top brands in the state. We are especially excited about moving football and men's basketball broadcasts to 93.5 SUNNY FM. It will give HOKIE fans a greater signal in the ROANOKE area and one of ROANOKE's best-known air personalities promoting the HOKIES every MONDAY through FRIDAY, LARRY DOWDY. That's priceless!"
In addition, VIRGINIA TECH IMG SPORTS NETWORK has inked extensions with three other affiliates, SINCLAIR COMMUNICATIONS Talk WNIS-A/NORFOLK, CLEAR CHANNEL Sports WRNL-A-Talk WRVA-A/RICHMOND, and DENBAR COMMUNICATIONS Country WBBC/BLACKSTONE, VA. The network is also heard on CBS RADIO Sports WJFK (106.7 THE FAN)/WASHINGTON.
