Nashville, TN– Nashville’s original Sports Station, WNSR, recently announced it will begin broadcasting on 95.9 FM early this summer. The station will continue to broadcast on 560 AM as well and will position itself as “Nashville’s SportsRadio 560 on 95.9 FM”.
WNSR has now reached a four year agreement to carry Vanderbilt Football, Men’s and Woman’s Basketball and Baseball through spring of 2017. This signals the return of Football and Men’s Basketball to the FM dial in the Nashville area, and brings added exposure to the Woman’s Basketball and Baseball programs.
“These are exciting times for Vanderbilt Athletics”, said General Sales Manager and Afternoon Drive Host Thom Abraham. “The football program has risen to unprecedented heights, Baseball has been rated No. 1 in the country and the basketball teams are always highly competitive. It’s hard to miss the new facilities being built on campus and we are thrilled to be able to add the Commodores to our line-up!”
Vanderbilt Director of Athletics David Williams is also pleased.
“WNSR has been a good and steady partner for many years and its addition of an FM signal not only boosts both our women’s basketball and baseball broadcast reach but will also be a very valuable addition to our football and men’s basketball broadcasts as a member of our network.”
WNSR will also expand the football pre-game programming by 1 hour with the “Commodores Countdown to Kickoff” show, beginning 2 ½ hours before kickoff.
