ESPN West Palm

Website looks great and they have the FAU announcement all over the front page.

Its canned ESPN programming untill 4PM, untill Evan Cohen broadcasts live at 4 PM.

Im not sure if the signal will reach me OMW home from Ft lauderdale but I will sure be listening and try to call in.

Local Owl fans we need to be proactive and call in and talk up FAU sports on the local programming. I dont know about you guys but i get just a bit tired of Mandich on 560 blathering on about MEEECHIGAN and being a UM homer.

Ill be tuning in!

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

OwlFamily you can try 1400AM in Broward. You'll get the football games on 1400 just not sure about hearing Evan Cohen at 4. He's been the only local radio guy who's been pro FAU for as long as I can remember. He always talks FAU

I should start listening to the radio during the game too. The sound sucks at Lockhart so it's sometimes unclear what the penalty was or who made the tackle.

What is the policy on bringing in a cordless radio?

Last year was the first time Evan did not do most of the BB games - Fox had the broadcast right (ESPN had them for a couple of years prior) , but he did manage to stay involved & announce a lot of the games for Fox.

Evan got involved with FAU when he started his gig with ESPN back in '03 in one form or another - you can definitely tell that the program has grown on him and has always spoken well of FAU on his program.  Having a local radio personnel attach themselves to your program is HUGE and like Evan mentioned, this is something they have been working on for 5+ years.

And now that ESPN is the flagship station for FAU - Evan will probably more involved with FAU basketball more then ever - I would expect more coverage & player & coaches being part of his show.  A great reason to listen to his show.
