How much is USJ paying for airtime?

What are the odds that CCSU has a radio deal before the season tips off?

Agreed. How does a D3 get on the radio, on a 50K flamethrower!

I wonder who is sponsoring this contract. I cannot believe that there are enough sponsors interested in paying for D3 play.

I believe that UHar also is not on the air, since last year.

Since Central is scheduling D3 schools, they should have scheduled St Josephs and then at least one game would be on local radio.

I have no doubt that this is a "pay to play" deal. WTIC is charging USJ an amount and USJ gets to sell commercial time to help pay for it. The commercial revenue will subsidize the cost for USJ, but it likely won't cover the full costs.

This is a ripping a page out of the Quinnipiac playbook, when they bought airtime on NESN for their basketball and ice hockey games. It is basically a 90-minute ad buy for the university.

The real question is - why didn't CCSU negotiate a similar deal as soon as it was known that UCONN moved on to the FM dial?

Exactly.

Also, NEC is Instagramming some tease. Says " necsports something new. Coming soon. #nechoops"

Picture has a womans player holding a ball and the date of 10.24
