TCU Sports Network from IMG
Selected as the best play-by-play broadcast in the state of Texas five of the last six years, the TCU Sports Network from IMG will continue handling radio duties for TCU football in 2016.
On Nov. 12, 2012, TCU reached a 12-year agreement with IMG College, the national leader in collegiate sports marketing, that provides the company with primary multimedia rights to TCU Athletics. The agreement was an extension of the original partnership that began in 2006.
The agreement, effective through the 2023-24 academic year, includes IMG College's representation and management of game broadcasts and coaches' shows for radio and television, publications, internet sales, corporate partnerships, stadium and venue signage, game promotions and hospitality.
Each year on the TCU Sports Network, more than 200 hours of Horned Frogs sports programming is produced and distributed, including play-by-play and pre- and postgame shows for TCU football and basketball games.
TCU recently announced a new five-year radio partnership with WBAP 820-AM and 99.5.2-FM that runs through the 2020-21 season. TCU receives an enhanced national presence through WBAP, which operates one of the most powerful stations in the country. The nighttime signal reaches 38 states in addition to parts of Canada and Mexico. WBAP consistently ranks as one of the top-rated radio stations in the Metroplex.
The TCU Sports Network broadcasts can also be heard in the Metroplex on KTCU 88.7-FM, as well as via stream on the TuneIn app and around the world via the internet on GoFrogs.com. Additionally, TCU features a Spanish language broadcast on Univision Radio KFLC 1270-AM.
