CHICAGO (January 13, 2013) Northwestern University and WGN Radio AM 720 today announced a three-year broadcast rightsholder extension.  The agreement will keep Wildcats football and men’s basketball on the 50,000-watt radio powerhouse through the conclusion of the 2015-16 season.

WGN Radio has been the flagship station for Chicago’s Big Ten Team since 1996 and its 50,000-watt signal reaches 38 states and Canada, with live Internet streaming available worldwide on all devices through, TuneIn,, and smartphone applications.

“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,” said Vice-President for Athletics & Recreation Jim Phillips.  “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.”

Dave Eanet serves as the voice of the Wildcats on WGN Radio, with analyst Ted Albrecht on football broadcasts, and former ’Cats Tim Doyle and Jitim Young during basketball season. Head Coaches Pat Fitzgerald and Bill Carmody, as well as Northwestern student-athletes make frequent appearances on the station’s different programs.

    Howdy! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website such as yours require a
    lot of work? I am brand new to blogging but I do write
    in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog
    so I can easily share my personal experience
    and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

    against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any tips?

    Have you taken your wife out on a date in the past
    30 days. If he’s always putting in all the work to the
    relationship, he will most likely move on to
    someone who meets him half way. Not only is Virtua Fighter one
    of the best fighting franchises of all-time, but it’s also treated like art’because its beautiful game
    mechanics are art.
