October 11, 2005

BLACKSBURG, VA - The new home of Virginia Tech sports in Dickenson County is WDIC-FM (92.1) in Clintwood.

The station joined the Virginia Tech ISP Sports Network of stations this fall and will provide its listeners with plenty of Hokie sports coverage throughout the year, carrying live play-by-play broadcasts of all football and men's basketball games, the "Hokie Hotline" call-in shows featuring football coach Frank Beamer and men's basketball coach Seth Greenberg, and the daily "Davenport Virginia Tech Sports Quiz."

"We are extremely excited to be carrying Virginia Tech sports and proud to be part of the ISP network," Shanghai Nickles, vice president and general manager of WDIC-FM, says.

"Our broadcasts of Tech football this fall have brought us a tremendous number of new listeners and have put us at the top for sports programming in Dickenson, Buchanan and Wise Counties."

Well-known Hokie play-by-play man Bill Roth says that having WDIC-FM as part of the statewide network is important to the athletic program.

"We're delighted that WDIC has joined the Virginia Tech ISP Sports Network," Roth says. "This is a big plus for Tech football and basketball fans in that region. WDIC has always been the 'Voice of Dickenson County' and now our fans will enjoy listening to our games in clear FM stereo."

ISP Sports, the exclusive multimedia rightsholder for Tech Athletics, is based in Winston-Salem, NC. The company manages radio networks for 16 other major college programs, including Hokie ACC rivals Georgia Tech and Wake Forest.
