Do they put Baseball games on the radio?

Do they put Baseball games on the radio?

Since they have Men's BBall and the football games on 640AM do they carry baseball games too?

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

No.  Owl Radio used to cover it, John McCormack (former AD) used to do the games as well, but its not on the radio anymore.  I think when FAU was in Tuscaloosa for the Regionals it was on though.

I wish it was something we can talk to 640 about, it's not like anyone listens when there's not a game on. We need a radio station that will carry games for all sports not just football and BBall… I know Football is still new but baseball has been our most successful sport and along with Softball the only sports we have ever nationally been ranked in.

Maybe Owl radio can pick it up again or fix their signal strength to where you may actually get it. Is that even a possibility?

It would cost a lot of money to carry 60 some odd games on the radio.

There is so much absolute garbage on radio (especially AM) that it is insane not to have women's hoops, baseball and other FAU sports broadcast.

Why can't FAU get a frequency of its own (like FIU and Troy have), or even a low-power FM station, which was designed exactly for this type of use?

What about using WXEL or the school district's frequencies?

How much could it cost to buy some time from one of the crummy AM (sell-all-their-time-to infomercials) stations and cover it with sponsor ads?

Us at Owl Radio are currently scheduled to try and cover as many home games as possible. As for those that asked about getting a frequency, they are very expensive and if Owl Radio does come through and get one dont expect it go too far down Glades Road :(.

Low power FM frequencies were designed not to be expensive (they are for individuals and groups), and I'll bet a nice AM signal would be cheaper than the nearly $600k given to the disgruntled former administrator.

FAU might even get Clear Channel, Freedom or James Crystal to help out and perhaps even start a broadcasting degree program.

Every college should have its own station, for emergency reasons alone. Maybe the feds would fund a station for homeland security reasons. I've heard stranger things (like the feds paying for the Town Center Mall's security cameras).

FAU does have its own radio station... the signal is available on campus.

The last time that Owl Radio had its own signal, we ended up interfering with a local Christian station and because of that they had the FCC take it away from us.
