Wolverine Encursion Into Buckeye Territory

AllAccess reports that Cumulus talk WTOD/1560 “SuperTalk 1560” has signed up for the rights to University of Michigan Wolverines football games in a three-year deal.

We don’t know the history of Wolverines football on Toledo’s radio airwaves – maybe WTOD program director (and OMW reader) Chuck Matthews can give us background. But the team’s 2005 radio affiliate list doesn’t have a Toledo affiliate. Or, for that matter, even one elsewhere on the nearby Michigan side of the Michigan/Ohio line. Of course, Wolverine flagship WJR/760 Detroit booms into Toledo and well beyond with its powerful 50,000 watt signal.

AllAccess notes that sister Cumulus sports WLQR/1470 “The Ticket” is the home of Ohio State Buckeyes football in the Toledo market, so…November ought to get really interesting at Cumulus Toledo…
