WDAY Radio to broadcast UND athletics again

GRAND FORKS - WDAY-AM Radio of Fargo has signed a new three-year affiliate agreement with the University of North Dakota, broadcasting all of UND's football and men's hockey games and numerous other games and coaches shows beginning in August.

"We are excited to continue a relationship with such a great university," said WDAY Radio operations manager Erick Johnson.

UND athletic director Brian Faison announced Thursday that all 12 of UND's radio affiliates - including WDAY - will return to carry the UND Sports Radio Network for the 2013-14 school year. Other North Dakota affiliates are located in Beulah, Bismarck, Devils Lake, Dickinson, Grand Forks, Langdon, Minot, Williston, Wimbledon as well as Minnesota affiliates in Mahnomen and Warroad.
