“Rutgers athletics is on the rise under Greg Schiano and Steve Pikiell in the Big Ten, bringing excitement and anticipation to Tri-State area fans,” said Chris Oliviero, Market President, Audacy New York. “WFAN and WCBS 880 will provide listeners with unmatched coverage of the Scarlet Knights and we are honored to add Rutgers to Audacy’s market-leading play-by-play portfolio.”

“We are excited to announce this partnership with Audacy,” said Pat Hobbs, Athletic Director, Rutgers. “Having our teams on WFAN and WCBS 880 is a great opportunity to expand our reach to sports fans in the New York metropolitan area. Our programs are having tremendous success across the board, and this allows for so many more fans to enjoy the excitement and join Rutgers Nation.”

Beginning with the 2022-23 season, WFAN will broadcast all regular games and postseason football games, including a 30-minute pregame and postgame show. Also beginning this season, WCBS 880 will air all regular season and postseason men’s basketball games, including a 15-minute pregame and postgame show. Both Rutgers football and men’s basketball broadcasts will also be available on the Audacy app in the local market territory. Both stations will also support the partnership and on-campus events through on-air, digital and social media promotion.

The partnership between Audacy and Rutgers Athletics was facilitated through Rutgers Sports Properties, the athletic department’s multimedia rightsholder and locally based LEARFIELD team. The team works alongside athletics administration on all aspects of the rights relationship with LEARFIELD.
