Who Are We?
WNUR Sports is the broadcast home for Northwestern Wildcats Athletics. We can be found over the air at 89.3 FM in Evanston and Chicago, and right here on our website. Fans can also like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with WNUR Sports and Northwestern athletics.
We broadcast every single football game of the season, including all postseason bowl games. We also broadcast many men’s basketball games and are the exclusive home of Northwestern Wildcats women’s basketball. WNUR Sports is the only place you can hear the Northwestern Wildcats compete in volleyball, soccer, baseball, softball, and women’s lacrosse. We’ve broadcast each of the Northwestern Wildcats women’s lacrosse team’s eight consecutive appearances in the national championship game, including seven National Championships.
Every Sunday at 7 PM Central Time during the school year, WNUR Sports brings you a two-hour sports talk block, including the SportsVoice, the only radio call-in show dedicated to Northwestern sports. During the show, the week’s hosts interview Northwestern players and coaches, as well as other well-known sports personalities like ESPN’s Mike Greenberg, Around the Horn Panelist Kevin Blackistone, ESPN’s Big Ten Blogger Adam Rittenberg, and former WNUR Sports Director and current ESPN Sports Business reporter Darren Rovell.
In addition to our radio presence, we provide lots of content for our listeners and readers both on our website and through social media. In addition, we regularly interview current players and coaches, record podcasts with famous alumni, and have roundtable discussions about Northwestern Athletics.
WNUR Sports has also produced a plethora of prominent media personalities over the years. Before Dave Eanet became Northwestern’s Lead Play-By-Play Broadcaster and the Sports Director at WGN Radio, his voice filled our airwaves. Dave Revsine of the Big Ten Network began his sports broadcasting career right here at WNUR Sports. Glenn Geffner, the Miami Marlins Play-By-Play Broadcaster, and Steve Weissman, an ESPN anchor, began their sports broadcasting lives here at WNUR Sports. Before Darren Rovell became ESPN’s Sports Business Reporter, he wrote columns for our website and called games right here. Even Kevin Blackistone spent some time time at WNUR when he was a Northwestern student.
