| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Northwestern and WGN have announced a three-year radio rights extension.

WGN has been the radio home of Wildcats sports since 1996.

Dave Eanet will continue to be the voice of Northwestern sports with Ted Albrecht continuing as football analyst and Tim Doyle and Jitim Young splitting analyst duties for basketball.

"The Northwestern Athletics brand has experienced substantial growth over the past several years due in part to the massive reach and presence of WGN Radio," athletic director Jim Phillips said in a statement released by the university. "We've been extremely proud to call the station home for 17 years, and to have a wonderful partner in telling the stories of our world-class student-athletes."
