The games will be on Cuba, IL radio station WILP (98.1 FM) this  year.

Last year, only the home games during the regular semester were on WIUS-FM.

WILP's coverage area includes Peoria.

If you like good 80s music, this is the place to be on a Sunday morning after a very tough beatdown in Missoula.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

In reference to radio, I noticed today that Classic 103 (102.7) in Macomb is still airing promos saying they're the home for Leatherneck Basketball (and they aired some for Football in the fall). This despite them not carrying WIU games for at least a few years. Once the new AD is hired, this might be something that needs to be mentioned to them to look into.

Looks like the same station will be broadcasting football games and men's basketball games this school year: https://goleathernecks.com/news/2022/8/ ... l_981.aspx

Agreed. How could the AD even consider agreeing to a contract for Football and Men's Basketball without demaind Women's Basketball be included in the deal?
