The Deal takes into effect on 2019-20 school year and runs through 2021-22
iHeartMedia/Orlando and UCF Athletics have extended their partnership to keep WYGM (96.9/AM 740 The Game) as the flagship station for Knights’ radio broadcasts. The new three-year deal begins with the 2019-20 school year and runs through 2021-22. Next year will mark the 25th consecutive year of Knights’ athletics on The Game. Under the new agreeement, UCF Football and UCF Men’s Basketball will take precedence over any other live event on the two outlets.
“We are thrilled about this extension of our partnership between iHeartMedia and UCF Athletics,” said iHeartMedia Division President Linda Byrd. “This is an exciting time to be a UCF fan and an exciting time for FM 96.9 The Game. Continuing to provide our listeners with coverage of UCF football, men’s basketball and baseball truly solidifies our radio station’s position as Orlando’s Sports Leader. We are also very happy that our UCF coverage is also available for listening on our iHeart Radio app, so Knight Nation can take our coverage wherever they go.”
