Entercom and the University of Saint Joseph in Connecticut have reached a broadcast agreement. As part of the deal, 1080 WTIC News Talk (WTIC-AM) in Hartford, CT, will broadcast home games of the university’s men’s basketball team’s inaugural season. The partnership will run through the 2018-19 collegiate season. Joe D’Ambrosio, co-host of 1080 WTIC News Talk’s morning show Mornings with Ryan Dunaway, will provide play-by-play commentary of the games.
“We are very excited to partner with the University of Saint Joseph and their newly announced men’s basketball program,” said Stephanie Perl, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Hartford. “This partnership is an excellent opportunity to expand our sports offerings to our listeners on 1080 WTIC while complementing our already strong sports programming.”
