A relationship which has spanned 26 years is coming to an end. News/Talk 1080 WTIC-AM and the University of Connecticut are parting ways, opening the door for the Huskies to air their games elsewhere. The news was made public on Twitter earlier this morning by Joe D’Ambrosio, the longtime voice of the Huskies.
In an official release distributed by the radio station, Entercom Hartford Senior VP and Market Manager Phil Zachary said, “I have the highest respect for AD David Benedict and his goals for the university. I couldn’t justify what they were seeking when compared to more successful partnerships Entercom enjoys with elite Power 5 institutions.”
The school’s new radio home has not yet been announced. UConn’s radio network is run by IMG Sports.
