Northern Illinois has found its new radio home in the Chicago area.

The school announced an agreement with AM 560 The Answer (WIND-AM) on Monday. The station will air every football game, as well as 12 men's basketball games and three women's basketball games.

From 2005-2013, the Huskies were heard on 670 The Score, but the agreement expired following last season.

NIU will still be heard locally on 1360 WLBK.
