LSU Sports Network to Broadcast Across 47 Affiliates in 2004

BATON ROUGE — Powered by three 100,000-watt stations and another six 50,000-watt stations, the LSU Sports Network will carry LSU’s national champion football team into 37 states across the nation in 2004.

Headlining the list of radio affiliates for the LSU Sports Network includes 50,000-watt WWL-AM out of New Orleans along with 50,000-watt KWKH-AM in Shreveport. According to Jim Hawthorne, LSU’s assistant athletic director for radio and Voice of the Tigers, WWL and KWKH can be heard in 37 states as well as generating a clear signal into Mexico and Central America at night.

Other 100,000-watt affiliates on the network are WDGL-FM in Baton Rouge, KNOE-FM in Monroe, and KCIL-FM in Houma.

In all, 47 affiliates from four states – Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi and Texas – will be a part of the LSU Sports Network this year. Of the 47 affiliates, 40 are in Louisiana, five in Mississippi and one each in Arkansas and Texas.

“I would find it hard to believe that there is a more powerful radio network for college athletics in the country,” said Hawthorne, who oversees the LSU Sports Network said. “Our No. 1 priority as a network is making sure that wherever you are in the state of Louisiana, day or night, you should be able to catch the Tigers. With this lineup of affiliates, we’ve done that.

“This is a very exciting time to be a part of LSU athletics and we’re proud to have put together a network that reaches all the way into the northeastern part of the United States to the southwestern part of the country.”

Hawthorne added that thanks to LSUsports.net and the Internet, LSU football can be heard internationally as well.

“The impact that LSUsports.net has had on a network has been tremendous,” Hawthorne said. “We’ve had people email from all of the World telling us that they’re listening to our broadcast of LSU sporting events.”

The LSU Sports Network kicks of its 2004-05 programming with the airing of Tiger Sportsline with Nick Saban on Wednesday, Sept. 1 from 7 to 8 p.m. at Superior Grill in Baton Rouge.
