Radio Blockbuster! Rush, O'Reilly, Hannity, and the Hokies
Norfolk's NewsRadio 790 completes lineup with Virginia Tech Sports
WNIS (790 AM) will carry all Tech football games and WTAR (850 AM) will air Tech basketball broadcasts and the Advance Auto Parts Hokie Hotline on Monday nights.

"This completes the best lineup our station has ever had," WNIS owner Bob Sinclair said. "We have Tony Macrini, Neil Boortz, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, and Virginia Tech sports. Clearly the Hokies are a big part of what we do here and you won't find a finer broadcast team than Bill Roth and Mike Burnop."

WNIS is the second-highest rated radio station in Norfolk (See 2003 Arbitron Ratings), the nation's 40th largest media market.

"We're ecstatic to continue our association with Sinclair Communications and WNIS and WTAR Radio," said Tech Director of Athletics Jim Weaver. "It's a tribute to our program and our great fans in all of Hampton Roads that Virginia Tech football and basketball broadcasts will be heard on Norfolk's top stations."

"We spend a lot of time recruiting in that area and when I'm there, I'm like most people in Norfolk, I listen to WNIS," Tech football coach Frank Beamer said. "Having the best radio stations helps our recruiting, helps our visibility, helps our ticket sales, and everything we do. Clearly this is one of the most important areas in Virginia for us and WNIS has been a huge supporter of our program over the years," he said.

ISP Sports develops and produces a variety of marketing opportunities involving Tech Athletics, including live play-by-play game broadcasts of Virginia Tech football and basketball games, plus weekly television programs.

This fall will mark the 50th consecutive year Tech broadcasts will be heard on a statewide network throughout the Commonwealth.
