Stadium and Main: Radio deal, etc.

Thursday, May 25, 2006

Radio deal, etc.

Michigan announced a new radio deal (err, deals) for its athletics coverage. Most of the reaction has been positive, especially from Michiganders. MSU usurped Michigan on WJR 760, which I think WJR will regret. But the new coverage package is fairly adequate. It would have been nice to announce a long-term satellite radio deal, as well, but it sounds like they plan to stick with Sirius for the foreseeable future.

Check out the broadcast teams for ABC and ESPN college football games this year. Ouch. Not much to work with, there. Dan Fouts doing play-by-play? That could get ugly. No more Mike Tirico, either. I’m not saying he’s the greatest, but it was nice to have an Ann Arbor resident calling a game or two each year. I know he’s movin’ on up to the Monday Night Football side, but couldn’t he call the Saturday Noon games on ABC or something?

Here’s the official "action request" PDF that was later approved for the Michigan Stadium renovations. FYI, baseball and softball are getting new digs, too. What about Bob basketball?...
