UCF Athletics and iHeartMedia Orlando have extended their partnership to keep WYGM/FM 96.9/AM 740 The Game as the flagship station for Knights’ radio broadcasts.
The new agreement is a three-year deal that begins with the 2019-20 school year and runs through 2021-22. The 2019-20 school year will mark the 25th consecutive year of Knights’ athletics on The Game. Throughout the new deal, UCF Football and UCF Men’s Basketball will take precedence over any other live event for FM 96.9 and AM 740 The Game. All UCF contests can also be heard on the iHeartRadio app, as well.
“We are thrilled about this extension of our partnership between iHeartMedia and UCF Athletics,” iHeartMedia Division President Linda Byrd said. “This is an exciting time to be a UCF fan and an exciting time for FM 96.9 The Game. Continuing to provide our listeners with coverage of UCF football, men’s basketball and baseball truly solidifies our radio station’s position as Orlando’s Sports Leader. We are also very happy that our UCF coverage is also available for listening on our iHeart Radio app, so Knight Nation can take our coverage wherever they go. Charge On!”
UCF Director of Athletics Danny White echoed Byrd’s sentiments.
“We’re extremely fortunate to have such a great radio partner in iHeartMedia and FM 96.9 The Game,” White said. “We greatly appreciate iHeartMedia’s ability to help us spread the word to Knight Nation through the radio station in the Orlando area and the iHeart Radio app with a world-wide reach. Our radio broadcasts are an important tool for us to continue building our brand and we couldn’t have a better partner.”
