When the UConn Huskies kick off their 2013 football campaign on Thursday night against the Towson Tigers, it will be the 22nd straight year that Connecticut football will be broadcast on its flagship station, WTIC AM-1080 in Hartford, the state's only 50,000 watt AM station.
The 2013-14 football and men’s and women’s basketball season also marks the second year that the radio rights are held by IMG College, which is UConn’s multi-media rights partner.
Veteran UConn announcers Joe D’Ambrosio (play-by-play) and Wayne Norman (color commentary) return to call the action with Kevin Nathan on the sidelines.
UConn football on home Saturday dates gets going early with “Breakfast At The Rent” with Ray Dunaway and Scott Gray beginning at 6:00 a.m. For noon games, the UConn Tailgate Show will air from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The pregame show begins at 11:30 a.m. followed by the game and then postgame “Husky Talk” with Nathan.
Stations on the WTIC/UConn Football Network are:
- WTIC-AM 1080 in Hartford, CT
- WILI-AM 1400 in Willimantic, CT
- WAVZ-AM 1300 in New Haven, CT
