Villanova University athletics announced Wednesday that it has signed a multi-year agreement to move its men's basketball and football broadcasts to WIP-AM (610).
The broadcasts kick off with the start of the basketball season on Nov. 9. Villanova football games will move to WIP-AM at the start of the 2013 season; the remainder of the current football schedule will continue on ESPN-AM (950).
WIP also will carry "Talking Villanova Basketball With Jay Wright," a weekly show with the Wildcats' coach that will begin in December, and a similar show with football coach Andy Talley starting in 2013.
The deal was reached in conjunction with IMG, the broadcast rights partner with the Wildcats' athletic department.
