Radio in your hands

Here are the details to FIU football games will be broadcast via the Internet:

With your iPhone, iPad, Android, laptop, Uniblab, whatever, go to http://www.fiusports.com and click the Stretch Internet audio link. Jerry Del Castillo, who did the Spanish-language broadcast of games the first eight years of the program and University of Miami 1994-2002, will do the play-by-play and FIU's Pete Pelegrin will provide color commentary. They'll do a 30-minute pregame show and 15-minute postgame show.

It's not traditional radio, but traditional radio might as well be called Interstate Radio. Unless you've got an institution doing play-by-play or color and fans have a habit of listening to the guy whereever they are, your audience is mostly comprised of people wearing seat belts.

This gets FIU, whose fandom skews younger than most programs, on devices most of their fans hold as dear as a previous generation held transistor radios. Depending how this works, it's possible other FIU events could be broadcast this way.
