Ohio IMG Ready for 2016

Aug. 27, 2016

ATHENS, Ohio -- Ohio Football is back and so is the Ohio IMG Sports Network's coverage of the Bobcats in 2016.

The first network broadcast comes on Monday night with the "Frank Solich Show" from Broney's in uptown Athens. The hour-long show starts at 6pm with 11 episodes scheduled throughout the season. Ohio players and other Bobcat coaches will make appearances. Fans are encouraged to attend or call in (866-993-2555).

Power 105 (WXTQ-105.5 FM) in Athens is back as the flagship of the 16 station network with a coverage area that extends into Kentucky and West Virginia. Fans in Columbus can once again tune-in to WYTS-1230 AM. On game day, WAOL-99.5 FM extends into the Cincinnati area. Ironton's WOUL-89.1 FM reaches into Huntington, W.V. and Ashland, Ky.

Via the partnership with TuneIn, fans worldwide can listen to all games and shows for free by downloading the TuneIn app. The broadcasts are also available online at OhioBobcats.com and Tunein.com/OhioBobcats. 

Bobcat Sports Today debuts for 2016-17 on Monday on many network stations. The BST is a daily sportscast covering Ohio Athletics. The game broadcasts begin an hour before kickoff with a comprehensive pregame show. Many pre-produced features will be tweeted out in advance of game day.  

Russ Eisenstein (@RussEisenstein) returns for his ninth season as the "Voice of the Bobcats". While in Athens, he's called some of the greatest moments in Ohio history: the school's two bowl victories, the win over Georgetown in the 2010 NCAA Tournament and the run to the 2012 Sweet 16.  In addition to the radio work, he's the face of Bobcat TV.  His broadcast experience includes TV shows, talk shows, high school coverage, minor league baseball and two seasons in the NBA. 

Eisenstein is once again joined network analyst, Rob Cornelius (@Robcwv). The Ohio alumnus has been involved with the broadcasts for the better part of two decades. Together, they have become a trusted duo for Bobcat fans everywhere. Their unique "infotainment" style helps bring the game to life.

"Our goal is to broadcast at the highest level possible," Eisenstein said. "Every time we're on the air we want to inform and entertain.  Fan's trust in us is something we don't take lightly. Rob and I have blended our talents together for a product we hope everyone can be proud of. We're excited for 2016!"
