University of Pittsburgh’s Athletic Director, Heather Lyke, speaks during a press conference unveiling Pitt Studios at the Petersen Events Center in Oakland on Oct. 4, 2018.

Pitt’s athletic department has entered into a multi-year broadcast partnership with Entercom, a media and entertainment company, that will keep the university’s football and basketball games on 93.7 FM for the 10th consecutive season.

The station has provided play-by-play for both teams since the 2010-11 seasons, but for the first time, game broadcasts, including pregame, halftime and postgame shows, will be entirely produced by the station. A two-hour football pregame show and one-hour “Panther Reaction” postgame call-in show will be part of the package.

The station also will air a one-hour pregame basketball show, including a 30-minute “Poni and Page Show,” featuring co-host Andrew Fillipponi and former Panthers basketball star Julius Page.

Further programming will include the launch this fall of two weekly shows, “The Panther Insider Show,” on 93.7 FM and “The Heather Lyke Show,” featuring the school’s athletic director on 1020 AM.

The weekly shows with football coach Pat Narduzzi and basketball’s Jeff Capel will continue.

“With Heather Lyke’s vision, the future of the Pitt athletic department is extremely exciting, and we are thrilled to be able to bring every moment of it to alumni and fans,” said Michael Spacciapolli, senior vice president and market manager of Entercom Pittsburgh. “Through the growth of our partnership, Panther fans will get coverage and insight year-round that they have never had before.”

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
