Owls reach agreement with WPHT-AM station


The days of having to scan the radio dial are over for the Temple faithful.

The Owls and WPHT-AM (1210) reach a multi-year deal to broadcast every men's basketball and football game, beginning in the 2011-12 season.

“We are excited to be able to not only continue, but strengthen our relationship with WPHT,” Temple athletic director Bill Bradshaw said in a statement. “This deal enables fans in the greater Delaware Valley and beyond the ability to follow Temple athletics on one of the strongest commercial radio stations in the country.”

The agreement goes into effect for Thursday’s Mayor’s Cup game against Villanova at the Linc.
