BLACKSBURG - ISP Sports and WAGE Radio (1200 AM) in Leesburg, Virginia have announced a multi-year extension of the station's affiliation contract to broadcast Virginia Tech sports.

WAGE-AM, the home of Virginia Tech sports in Loudoun County for the last four decades, will continue to carry Virginia Tech football games, men's basketball games, and the weekly Advance Auto Parts Hokie Hotline on Monday nights.

"We are delighted to carry the Hokies," Station Manager Dene Hill said. "There are so many Hokie fans here. We are always amazed when we listen to the Hokie Hotline how many people from our area call the show. And ISP Sports does an incredible job making the broadcasts sound great."

"We're proud that WAGE will continue to be the home for Tech football and basketball in Loudoun County and beyond," said ISP Sports Assistant Vice-President Bill Roth. "This is a credit not only to our successful teams at Tech, but to the members of the Hokie Nation who live in Loudoun County and participate as sponsors on the local level. This is a real team effort and our fans in Loudoun should take great pride in having this station on our network."
