St. Thomas continues radio partnership with WCCO-AM 830

More news about: St. Thomas

WCCO-AM 830 has announced an extension in its partnership with the University of St. Thomas to broadcast Tommie football through the 2019 season.

WCCO-AM's Dave Lee will continue to provide play-by-play for the Tommies, along with WCCO-AM's Eric Nelson doing color commentary. 

WCCO-AM has been broadcasting St. Thomas games since a December 2010 playoff game, including two Stagg Bowl national title contests from Salem, Va. In all, 79 Tommie games have aired on WCCO, including 19 postseason playoff games.

The Tommies compete in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) with fellow football schools Augsburg, Bethel, Carleton, Concordia-Moorhead, Gustavus, Hamline, St. John's and St. Olaf, and all have a strong alumni base in the Twin Cities and statewide. 

"We are pleased to extend our broadcast agreement with St. Thomas, and to continue the tradition of broadcasting an expansive and enhanced experience to college football fans here in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest," said Shannon Knoepke, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS RADIO Minneapolis.

"We look forward to continuing the Tommie football partnership with WCCO Radio," St. Thomas athletics director Steve Fritz said. "We continue to get excellent feedback from alumni, parents and fans on the value of having our games carried on a station with the history and reputation of WCCO. It's not only benefitted our university, but the entire Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference." 

"We are ecstatic about continuing our relationship with WCCO Radio," said St. Thomas football coach Glenn Caruso. "The bond that St. Thomas and WCCO have been able to form over the past six years has been special. Both parties are deeply-rooted Minnesota institutions, and I could not ask for a media partner more in line with what our university, athletic department and our football program is all about.

"The feedback that we receive about our WCCO partnership is overwhelming. WCCO's coverage and exposure are second to none for a Division III institution. The presence and personality of Dave Lee, Eric Nelson and Fritz Waldvogel on game day offer a distinctly Minnesota feel to a product that is decidedly Minnesota." 

WCCO Radio, which has broadcast college football games since 1924, is also the current radio broadcast home of the NBA's Minnesota Timberwolves.

WCCO-AM will air its first 2017 St. Thomas football broadcast on Sept. 2, when the Tommies take on UW-Eau Claire at home at 1:10 p.m. in O'Shaughnessy Stadium. All 10 regular-season games are tentatively scheduled to start at 1:10 p.m.

This fall's Tommie schedule also includes an historic Sept. 23 clash at Target Field between archrivals St. Thomas and St. John's in what will be that venue's first college football game.
