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.

About this blog
Joe Juliano first visited the Palestra in 1970 after entering Temple University and became hooked for life on Big Five basketball. He'll always go with that name, figuring if the Big Ten can have 12 teams, why can't the Big Five have six?

Juliano joined the Inquirer in 1985 after 10 years at United Press International and has covered college sports for most of that time. His current beats are Villanova basketball, Penn State football, golf and the Penn Relays. Reach Joe at jjuliano@phillynews.com.
