WIBC/Indianapolis To Air Indiana U. Hoops

EMMIS Talk WIBC-F/INDIANAPOLIS will serve as the INDIANAPOLIS-area affiliate for INDIANA UNIVERSITY men's basketball this season. The station inked a deal with LEARFIELD SPORTS' INDIANA UNIVERSITY SPORTS PROPERTIES to air the games, while sister Sports WFNI-A (1070 THE FAN) will continue airing the "INSIDE IU BASKETBALL WITH TOM CREAN" show and a daily three-minute feature. Sister Country WLHK (97.1 HANK FM) aired the HOOSIERS' games last season.
"IU Basketball and WIBC are both iconic institutions that are truly a part of the fabric of Central Indiana, so it only makes sense to pair these two great brands together for the 2011-2012 season," said EMMIS VP/Market Manager CHARLIE MORGAN.
"Everyone's already excited for tip off on NOVEMBER 5th, and there's no doubt WIBC will be a quality broadcast partner for us in the INDIANAPOLIS metro area," said IUSP GM ROB LOUTHAIN. "We feel certain hoops fans in that market will be pleased with the coverage, as we continue to strive in providing the best HOOSIER Network we can."
