Northwood University announced Tuesday that, beginning with the 2016-17 season, all of its men’s and women’s basketball games will be broadcast on ESPN 100.9-FM (WLUN), the radio home of the Great Lakes Loons. It will mark the first time in NU basketball history that both home and road games will air both on the radio and online.
“It’s really exciting for our radio station to bring Northwood basketball onto our airwaves,” ESPN 100.9-FM Vice-President Scott Litle said in a written release. “We pride ourselves on being the local sports leader in the region. Partnering with Northwood continues to keep us in line with our vision of providing listeners with as much local content as possible.”
Play-by-play broadcaster Chris Vosters, who announces Loons’ games and Saginaw Valley League athletics for the station, will serve as the broadcaster for all home basketball games at Riepma Arena, while Northwood Sports Information Director Travis McCurdy will call the action for road games.
“We have had an outstanding relationship with 100.9-FM the past several years and are really looking forward to building on that partnership,” NU Athletics Director Dave Marsh said in a written release. “We appreciate this opportunity to expand our on-air basketball coverage and look forward to a great season.”
As in past years, Northwood Basketball Weekly will be the supplemental program to all gameday broadcasts during the season. Interviews with coaches and players will offer fans the chance to get an inside look into both basketball programs. Northwood Football Weekly will also remain on ESPN 100.9-FM.
Northwood football games will continue to be broadcast on AM-1490 (WMPX) with Dale Robbins providing commentary.
