AUSTIN, Texas -- From the Red River to the Rio Grande, across the country, and across the globe, the Longhorn Radio Network, produced by Longhorn IMG Sports Marketing, embarks on its 29th season of delivering the official Texas Football gameday broadcasts and more to the Longhorn Nation.
The Longhorn Radio Network brings more than 75 hours of original, live programming to fans this fall including all regular and postseason Texas Football gameday broadcasts in both English and Spanish, and Longhorn Sportsline, Mack Brown's weekly show. With more than 30 affiliates across the state, a dedicated channel on Sirius XM satellite radio, and online broadcasts at TexasSports.com, fans anywhere have the ability to tune in to exclusive coverage of the Longhorns.
Texas Football gameday broadcasts include one-hour pregame coverage, complete in-game coverage, and one-hour postgame coverage. The Voice of the Longhorns, Craig Way, provides all the play-by-play details, with Roger Wallace as color analyst, while former UT and NFL cornerback Rod Babers brings reports from the sidelines for the first time this season.
Texas Athletics is also proud to offer a Spanish-language broadcast of all football games, featuring the calls of play-by-play veteran Ruben Pizzaro and color analyst Felipe Romero. The broadcast is available exclusively on TexasSports.com.
When fans travel on the road this season for games in Los Angeles, Ames, Columbia, and away contests in Texas, they'll be able to tune into Royal Purple Road Radio at the opponent's stadium to hear the official gameday broadcast. Royal Purple has entered into a multi-year sponsorship agreement to help deliver this coverage.
"It's well known that Texas fans travel in droves to follow their team on the road, and Royal Purple is excited to give the Longhorn faithful the ability to hear the official gameday broadcasts with Craig, Roger, and Rod no matter where the games take them," says Randy Fisher, director of consumer marketing for Royal Purple.
Longhorn Sportsline with Mack Brown, presented by Great Southern Wood, airs on Wednesday nights throughout the season. Craig Way hosts Coach Brown and other special guests for one hour of in-depth conversation about the team, opponents, and more. This is the fifth consecutive year for Great Southern Wood to partner with Coach Brown on his radio show. The show is also simulcast exclusively on the Longhorn Network.
"Coach Brown is an outstanding football coach and even more outstanding human being. Great Southern Wood is proud to be a part of delivering his insight to Longhorn fans everywhere," says Jimmy Rane, president of Great Southern Wood.
