NIU to look for new radio station for football

Since 2005, Northern Illinois has had its football games broadcast on WSCR-670 AM, The Score.

The school will be looking for a new home for 2014, as Illinois will have its games broadcast on the station when NIU’s agreement expires after the this season.

NIU, which has its football games broadcast locally on 1360-WLBK, will work with IMG College, its multimedia rights holder, to find a new home in the Chicago area, according to acting athletic director Christian Spears.

Spears said NIU football, coming off of a second straight Mid-American Conference championship and an Orange Bowl appearance, is a viable product and is confident the school will be able to find a new agreement.

“I’ll put our football team up against any team in the state over the last 10 years, you can do the math, our record speaks for itself,” Spears told the Daily Chronicle. “... There’s a lot of great things happening for NIU football and I would think [the Chicago area] wants to support us.”
