Broadcasts of the men’s basketball will once again be available in Chicago, thanks to a new partnership between the ISU Athletics Department and WVON-AM 1690, “The Talk of Chicago.” The agreement calls for a 10-game broadcast schedule, which will be issued at a later date.

With a 10,000-watt signal, WVON-AM 1690 has a coverage area that includes downtown Chicago and the southwest suburbs.

Other Redbird Radio Network partners include the flagship station of WJBC-AM 1230 and FM 93.7 in Bloomington, WFMB-AM 1450 in Springfield, WZPN 96.5 ESPN in Peoria, WJEZ 98.9 FM in Dwight, and WDZ-AM 1050 in Decatur. Negotiations with other stations throughout the state are ongoing.
