The three-way agreement is between iHeartMedia Delaware, University of Delaware Athletics, and Blue Hens IMG Sports Marketing. The result is a multi-year extension of their current radio affiliation agreement with 94.7 WDSD-FM. The station will continue to carry all Delaware football and men’s basketball game broadcasts, plus additional programs, including a weekly Blue Hens Football Coach’s Shows, featuring Delaware head football coach Dave Brock. Partner stations, Fox Sports 1290 WWTX-AM and 1410 WDOV-AM will continue to carry all Delaware women’s basketball broadcasts. The new contract extension runs through the 2020-21 season.
“UD has a large and loyal fan base that covers the entire state of Delaware,” said iHeartMedia Markets Group Area President Chris Walus. “We’re very excited to continue to provide Blue Hens fans with play-by-play broadcasts of their favorite football and basketball team on our network of stations.”
