Sports Radio 560 WQAM and the University of Miami have announced a multi-year extension for the station to continue as the flagship radio home of Miami Hurricanes games. WQAM has been a broadcast partner of the Hurricanes since the 1999 NCAA football season.
Under the new deal, WQAM will carry all regular-season and post-season football games, all men’s basketball games and weekly coaches’ shows for the two sports during their respective seasons. The station will produce and air live broadcasts from WQAM’s studios and has non-exclusive streaming rights on the station’s website. “The Voice of the Hurricanes”, Joe Zagacki, will return for his 29th season on football and Men’s basketball broadcasts.
“We’ve enjoyed a great partnership with Miami Athletics and want to continue delivering excellent game broadcasts and coaches’ shows for Canes’ fans,” said WQAM Program Director Ryan Maguire. “We take great pride in covering the Hurricanes throughout the year and serving as the program’s flagship station. We are pleased to have renewed our partnership and have the privilege of broadcasting the games for many more years to come.”
“We’re excited to extend our long-standing partnership with WQAM and CBS Radio to continue as the Official Radio Home of the Hurricanes,” University of Miami’s Director of Athletics Blake James said. “The tremendous reach of WQAM allows us to connect with Hurricane fans all around South Florida and we look forward to our continued partnership.”
