New Radio Home for FIU Football

Fiuhelmet FIU football is switching radio stations this fall and will have its games broadcast on Tik 790 The Ticket beginning with the season opener at Alabama on Sept. 12.

"We've very excited to have the opportunity to be on 790 The Ticket -- the number one sports station in South Florida," said FIU athletic director Pete Garcia, whose program signed a three-year contract with 790. "We're the only college team on 790. It's the
beginning of a great relationship as we continue to build the FIU athletic department."

When Golden Panthers games conflict with Marlins or Panthers games, FIU can be heard on WMCU 1080.

Last year FIU football was heard on 940 WINZ.

The football broadcasts will have new announcers as FIU chose not to retain color analyst Randy Kassewitz and sideline reporter Michael Mandich.

Last year's play-by-play announcer Jeremy Marks-Peltz is considered a candidate for the FIU play-by-play job on 790.

The new announcers are expected to be named later this summer.
