Morehead State University’s football season kicks off next Saturday. If you are a fan, you probably already knew that. What you might not have known, though, is if you want to listen to those games, all you need to do is tune your radio to local favorite WGOH GO Radio.
GO Radio is the new home for Morehead State football and men’s basketball this season – at least on this end of the state.
Chuck Mraz, the voice of Eagles football and basketball, explained that WIVY is still the parent station for Morehead’s games. But, he explained, media relations director Matt Schabert and GO Radio Program Director Mike Nelson began talks several months ago about making WGOH a WIVY affiliate for local sports broadcasts.
Mraz said there are Morehead alumni and fans throughout the region and he’s glad that the WGOH signal will help them reach more of those fans.
“Their signal will get into Ashland and Huntington, which will get to our alums and fans in that area,” he said. “We’re excited to reach those listeners and bring more in state basketball and football to them.”
He said he’s particularly excited to be working with WGOH again to make that happen, noting he worked with the station when he first started as voice of the Eagles.
“I know I’ve been doing this here since the ‘86 and ‘87 season, and they were affiliates of ours back then,” Mraz said. “It’s just great came to have them back.”
Morehead State squares off against James Madison at 6 p.m. on Saturday, September 4, for the first game in their fall schedule.
You can find WGOH on the FM dial at 100.9 and on AM at 1370.
