Deacon Sports To Remain On Flagship WBRF-FM

May 12, 2006

WINSTON-SALEM - The Wake Forest ISP Sports Network has renewed its agreement with WBRF-FM (98.1 FM), guaranteeing the Demon Deacons one of the most powerful flagship stations in the ACC for the next seven years.

The 100,000-watt station will continue to carry Wake Forest football and men's basketball broadcasts as well as weekly call-in shows featuring head coaches Jim Grobe and Skip Prosser during their respective seasons. Selected women's basketball and baseball contests will be aired as well.

"Wake Forest Athletics and WBRF have enjoyed a great relationship for many years, and with this new agreement that relationship will continue for many more years," Deacon athletics director Ron Wellman says.

"The station and the Epperson family have truly been a partner with us and become an integral part of our program. We are thrilled to extend our relationship with them for the next seven years."

Kelly Epperson, president of Blue Ridge Time Sales, also expressed pleasure with the partnership extension. \ "We are excited about renewing our long historic partnership with ISP Sports in serving the fans of Wake Forest University," Epperson says. "To be the primary station in Wake Forest's home market for another seven years continues a perfect fit for all parties. We are thrilled and grateful to ISP and Wake Forest University for wanting to team up with WBRF.

"Our goal is to not only serve the most loyal fans in the country at home, work, car, or in the stands, but to be a recruiting tool for Wake Forest Athletics. From Asheboro to Abingdon, we're proud that you can catch the Deacs on Blue Ridge Country 98.1 FM."
