UTC has new Flagship Radio Station

Had an email yesterday from the UTC forum with a link to the press release announcing a new flagship radio station to cover football, MBB, WBB, and seasonal coaches shows for the next five years. What a novel idea! Wish our athletic department had come up with an idea like that.

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (March 26, 2019) – The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and its athletics multimedia rightsholder, Mocs Sports Properties, announced today that "The Big Jet FLI" will be the new flagship radio home for football, men's and women's basketball, and seasonal coaches' shows for the next five years.

Concurrent with the 2019-20 collegiate athletics season, WFLI 1070 AM and 97.7 FM will air live all home and away football and basketball game action. Additionally, the Chattanooga-based flagship will carry the one-hour weekly coaches' show featuring Head Coach Rusty Wright during football season, and Mocs' head coaches Lamont Paris and Katie Burrows during basketball season. Mocs Sports Properties, the local Learfield IMG College team that works alongside the UTC athletics administration, negotiated the new radio relationship with The Big Jet FLI owner, Tri-State Radio.

According to Evan Stone, WFLI co-owner, "WFLI is excited to join forces with UTC and Learfield IMG College. Both UTC and WFLI enjoy a rich heritage here in the Chattanooga area, and we are looking forward to our partnership."

To further complement growth of the Mocs Sports Network, Tri-State Radio also will add its radio group WKWN 1420 AM, 101.3 FM and 106.1 FM in Trenton, Ga. beginning this fall. In the event of a broadcast conflict, WDXW 1480 AM and 95.7 FM will air Mocs' programming.
