CBS RADIO Talk WCCO-A/MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL will air UNIVERSITY OF ST. THOMAS football for the next two seasons. The TOMMIES will fill the void left in WCCO's sports coverage left when the UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA moved its football broadcasts to crosstown CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KFAN-A and Talk KTLK-F. DAVE LEE, who called GOPHERS games for WCCO since 2001, will switch to call the TOMMIES games, with former MINNESOTA VIKINGS tight end JOE SENSER as analyst.
"We are excited to partner with the UNIVERSITY OF ST. THOMAS, its COO MARK DIENHART, Athletic Director STEVE FRITZ and Coach GLENN CARUSO. WCCO's tradition of SATURDAY afternoon football broadcasts will continue with ST. THOMAS's rich history of athletic success and their traditional rivalries in the MINNESOTA INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETIC CONFERENCE," said CBS RADIO MINNEAPOLIS SVP/Market Manager MICK ANSELMO.
