IU Southeast athletics partners with WXVW-1450

Relationship will include weekly show, live basketball games

NEW ALBANY — The IU Southeast athletic department and WXVW-1450 AM The Sports Buzz  have announced plans to produce a weekly radio show on Monday nights focused solely on IU Southeast athletics. WXVW-1450 will also broadcast select men’s and women’s basketball games throughout the 2013-14 season.

The Grenadier Sports Report will air on Monday nights from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. beginning Monday, September 9. The show will continue every week throughout the year and finish up in early May.

The show will broadcast live each week from Tucker’s American Favorites, 2441 State Street in New Albany.

Veteran Southern Indiana broadcaster Matt Denison — the Indiana High School Baseball Coaches Association’s 2013 outstanding baseball media winner — will host the program. He will be joined by Grenadier coaches, student-athletes and administrators to discuss everything that is happening in IU Southeast sports.

“I’m really excited for the opportunity to work with the coaches and student-athletes of IU Southeast,” Denison said. “This weekly program is an opportunity to showcase all the great things that the Grenadier athletic program is accomplishing right here in our backyard.”

WXVW-1450 is a 24/7 sports station featuring a top sports talk double feature in The Dan Patrick Show and The Jim Rome Show. The 1,000-watt station covers the Louisville Metro area.

“I am thrilled that IU Southeast is able to partner with one of the most historic radio stations in the state to broadcast both The Grenadier Sports Report and various basketball games this season,” IU Southeast athletic director Joe Glover said. “WXVW is committed to broadcasting local sports and we are happy to add to that tradition and while serving our fan’s interest throughout Southern Indiana.

WXVW-1450 has a rich history in Southern Indiana and has begun to re-establish itself as the radio leader of local sports in the area.

“We are excited to bring coverage of such a successful, local collegiate athletics program to the area listeners as part of our mission to restore the station’s heritage as Southern Indiana’s sports leader,” said Dugan Ryan, Owner and General Manager. “Great things are taking place at IU Southeast, and we’re happy to now be closely associated with Joe Glover and his entire coaching staff.”

WXVW-1450. which is owned and operated by Ryan Media, LLC, will announce the complete radio broadcast schedule for IUS men’s and women’s basketball at a later date this fall.

All home men’s and women’s basketball games, as well as volleyball matches,

will also be streamed online at iusathletics.com for the second straight season.
