For Men's Basketball and Football.  

So maybe not a full GT Flagship, but a flagship for those 2 programs. 


Will be interesting to see Chernoff and Coach Johnson together.  Can Bobinski have CPJ make peace?

I like this move. Hopefully they will now bring in some pro Tech guys to promote us.

We need to provide something to promote. That shouldn't be a problem for the football team. Basketball ....

I don't care about the promotion, it is the program bashing that needs to go away.

In the short term, this has got to help. In the long term, I hope it's good news for our brand. However, if we don't move up a notch or two in our results, it'll be like putting lipstick on a pig, and parading the pig on the top sports station in this area.

I like this. But what is going to happen when there is a Braves at the same time Tech is playing? I'm trying to get an answer on that.

They also have an FM dial so either one will be on AM while the other on FM if the two games overlap.

Is this factual information or is there an inside joke I am missing?

THey also broadcast Ga State. What happens when the Brave, GSU, and Tech all play at the same time?

I assume we are second fiddle behind the Braves (which makes sense), so we'd likely shift over to another station in the Dickey/Cumulus group. So far the Wofford and Georgia Southern games don't conflict with Braves.

GSU games are on 1340AM, not 680/93.7.

Honestly, unless we get on 750am then it is much ado about nothing.  

All the other stations stink in one way or the other.  I don't think there is any voice on current Atlanta radio that cares a bit about GT sports.  

The only thing I care about is a decent FM feed and other affiliate stations incase they are my only option.

Well the Braves rarely play at noon on Saturdays so there shouldn't be any conflict

It is a step in the right direction if you ask me.

The Braves will be done in early fall so I don't seeing them being that much of an issue.  We will get priority over GSU, they are pretty much a non-entity.
