10/25/06 - Press Release
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - WVUA-FM 90.7 has announced that on Wednesday, February 14th 2006, the "Road to the Women's College World Series" radio show will return to the airwaves. Last season "The Road" aired its inaugural show during the opening week of the Division I softball Regionals, and aired an additional show to preview the Super Regionals. "The Road" previewed and broke down the preceding and following weeks action, and talked to many coaches from around the country including Connie Clark (Texas), Sue Enquist (UCLA), Carol Hutchins (Michigan), and Patrick Murphy (Alabama). A full slate of coaches will again appear in 2007.
"We had an incredible response to the show last year, and we are very excited to be bringing the show back for its first full season of NCAA softball this season. As far as we know, this is the only weekly radio show in the country focusing solely on collegiate softball, and we know there is an audience for it based on last year's success," said WVUA-FM Sports Director and show host Nic Hoch. "The Road" will air every Wednesday from 8 ET (5 PT) to 9 ET (6PT). Hoch and co-host Chad Anderson break down the weekly action throughout NCAA softball, complete with interviews with head coaches and athletes from around the country. The show also features call-in segments for listener questions and comments.
In addition to the airing of "The Road" on 90.7 FM in the Tuscaloosa area, the show is also webcast for those outside of the listening area. The webcast feed can be accessed by visiting WVUA-FM's website at www.wvuafm.ua.edu and can be accessed from anywhere around the world. Each show will also be available after the air date through podcast format. WVUA-FM is the student-radio station on the campus of the University of Alabama, and is also the home and away voice of the Alabama Crimson Tide softball program.
