IHeartMedia Delaware, University of Delaware Athletics and Blue Hens IMG Sports Marketing have agreed to a multi-year extension of their current radio affiliation agreement with 94.7 WDSD-FM.
94.7 WDSD-FM 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.
The 94.7 WDSD-FM signal blankets Delaware and spreads into the surrounding states of Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. In addition to broadcasts being heard on the FM station, all games can also be heard on the iHeartRadio app, and all home games can be heard on the University of Delaware’s digital streaming video player, Hens All-Access.
The 2016-17 season will mark the 18th consecutive season that Delaware athletics can be heard on 94.7 WDSD-FM and will extend iHeartMedia Delaware’s partnership with Blue Hens IMG Sports Marketing. Play-by-Play broadcaster, Scott Klatzkin, will enter in to his fifth season as “The Voice of the Blue Hens” on WDSD.
