Howard Broadcasts Football Games for first time in Two Decades

Fuquay-Varina, NC – DWCommunications, LLC has played a vital role in helping to put together the Howard University Sports Network. For the first time in more than 20 years, fans can hear Bison football on the radio. The Bison football games, which have been carried over the Internet the past two years, will be heard in the Baltimore/Washington metro area, the Atlanta, GA area and Richmond, VA. DWCommunications will provide a host of services for the network including public relations and marketing.

“I am proud to be a part of helping a prestigious institution such as Howard University put together the Howard University Sports Network,” said Donal Ware, founder and CEO of DWCommunications, LLC, who put together the Shaw Bear Sports Radio Network and whose company owns the broadcast rights to the national sports talk show FROM THE PRESS BOX TO PRESS ROW. “I have been associated with Howard University all of my life and this is a monumental occasion.”

Listeners in the Baltimore/Washington area can catch the games on WBIS 1190- AM; in the Atlanta area games will be carried as a simulcast on WATB 1420 AM in Atlanta and east of Atlanta on WGFS 1430 AM; and in the Richmond area games can be heard on WCLM 1450-AM. Ty Miller and Tony McGee will call all of the live action.

WHUR Radio, Howard University’s own FM commercial station, as well as Bison Express also played a vital role in putting together Howard University’s first sports radio network.

“WHUR is happy to be a partner in bringing Bison sports to areas un-served,” said general manager Jim Watkins. “This will give alumni and fans in those areas an opportunity to follow the Bison.”

Howard has broadcast its football games via Internet for the last two years. Bison Express was instrumental in starting that process, which has finally led to the games being broadcast over radio.

Howard head football coach Rayford Petty says it is a big boost to recruiting.

“It’s great exposure for the program,” said Petty, who is in his fourth season. “Those are areas where we can recruit and our fans in that area will be able to follow us. And I like the fact that it is something we can build on for the future.”

All games can also still be heard over the Internet by logging onto:
