Georgetown sports return to radio
Georgetown College has a new partnership with Glicod Communications, a marketing-based company out of Louisville that will help the Tigers broaden their horizons as well as put GC athletics back on radio.
The deal with Glicod is for 30 games total this season, covering all football games with dates for men’s and women’s basketball to be decided later.
All football games will be heard on WCGW 770 AM in central and northern Kentucky and WFIA 94.7 FM in Louisville and most of Southern Indiana as radio-only broadcasts.
Some men’s and women’s basketball games will also be part of this radio deal, but exact games have not been determined yet.
“We are really excited about this deal with Glicod,” said GC director of athletics Brian Evans. “It is an opportunity to put us back on radio, which we’ve been away from for the past five years, and still stream an Internet audio broadcast to our larger fan base.”
