The Sixth Annual WNUR Sportsathon is set to kick off Friday, November 11th, at 3:00 pm and continue until Saturday, November 12th, at 8:30 pm. The event is almost 30 straight hours of sports programming on WNUR 89.3 FM and WNURSports.com. This year’s Sportsathon will include live coverage of at least six different Northwestern sporting events, including women’s basketball and volleyball games on Sunday, November 13th. Click here to hear why WNUR Sports alumnus and lead studio host for the Big Ten Network Dave Revsine believes Sportsathon is so important. 

Sportsathon is the lone fundraiser for WNUR Sports throughout the year. The funds raised are used to improve the station’s equipment and assist in travel for road trips throughout Big Ten country and around the nation for events such as bowl games, the women’s lacrosse Final Four, and the men’s and women’s Big Ten Basketball Tournaments.
