BLUE HENS FOOTBALL ON THE RADIO
The 2016 University of Delaware season will mark the 18th consecutive year of Blue Hen football being broadcast on 94.7 WDSD.
94.7 FM WDSD, the only station with statewide coverage in Delaware, will once again be the flagship station for Blue Hen football, with coverage throughout Delaware, and parts of Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. Games can also be heard online at WDSD.com and on your mobile device, using the iHeart Radio app.
For the fifth season, Scott Klatzkin will handle all play-by-play duties for Delaware Football. Klatzkin, the "Voice of the Blue Hens,” also provides play-by-play for the Blue Hens Men’s Basketball team on WDSD-FM. Matt Janus, in his 10th year with the broadcast crew, will serve as color analyst for the third straight season. Returning for his second season as sideline reporter is two-time CAA All-Conference selection, Michael Atunrase. Once again joining the pre-game show as a weekly guest for the 13th consecutive year will be Kevin Tresolini from the News Journal.
For the fifth consecutive season, the entire Blue Hens radio broadcast crew is made up of University of Delaware graduates.
WDSD-FM will once again begin its coverage of Delaware football games one hour prior to kick-off with the “Blue Hens Gameday” pre-game show, and during all home games the show will be live outside of Delaware Stadium.
The Blue Hens Football Coach’s Show, hosted by Klatzkin, will be broadcast live every Wednesday night from 7-8 p.m. throughout the season and will feature Head Coach Dave Brock and student-athlete guests. The show will once again take place at Klondike Kate’s Restaurant on Main Street in Newark.
For more University of Delaware sports, Blue Hens Today will air every Friday at 5pm throughout the season on WDSD’s partner station, Fox Sports 1290 AM.
