Notre Dame & Entercom Launch Digital Partnership

The Universtiy of Notre Dame and Entercom have announced an exclusive deal creating a streaming channel on Radio.com for the school.  The partnership was made in conjunction with Notre Dame’s multimedia rights holders, Legends and JMI Sports.

“We are excited to partner with the University of Notre Dame, a leader in college athletics, and about this new phase for Radio.com,” said Pam Russo, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Entercom.

“We are leaders in everything audio, and confident that Radio.com is poised to become a daily habit for the millions of listeners we reach per month. Our custom, curated experience, premium editorial, and unmatched spoken-word content is what sets Radio.com apart and provides a different and unique value proposition for fans and for advertisers,” added Russo.

The digital channel, which can be found at Radio.com/Notre Dame, will offer play-by-play of every football game as well as other athletics.  The partnership with Notre Dame forms the first exclusive streaming play-by-play agreement for Radio.com, a growing platform which currently offers over 300 stations and 1,100 podcasts.
