Radio Coverage for UP Teams

Postby upfootball » Wed Aug 11, 2004 12:40 pm

Lets start this right now. I want to know what radio stations cover which team in the UP. Maybe we could put their website links on here also if you know them. I will start this out with the Dickinson County teams:

101.5 FM WJNR Iron Mountain - They mostly cover Iron Mountain and Kingsford. But they do also cover Norway, North Dickinson, Florence (WI), and Niagara (WI).
website - http://www.frogcountry.com/

100.7 FM WOBE Iron Mountain - Coverage is the same as WJNR. This is a sister station of WJNR. Sometimes WJNR will split up its announcers and cover 2 games. One game will be on 101.5 FM and the other will be on 100.7 FM.
website - http://www.oldiesradioonline.com/whereareyou.asp (type in zip code of 49801)

106.7 FM WHTO Iron Mountain-Kingsford-Norway - A new radio station that will cover the Norway Knights.
website - http://www.whtofm.com/

94.3 FM WZNL Iron Mountain - Another station that covers the Dickinson County teams. They will usually cover Iron Mountain or Kingsford. But will also cover the other Dickinson County teams. Usually WJNR will cover one team (IM or KHS) and WZNL will cover the other in any given week.
website - http://wznl.tripod.com/

1450 AM WMIQ Iron Mountain - Sister station of 94.3 FM WZNL. Will have the game on AM or the FM station or sometimes both.
website - http://talk1450.tripod.com/

Well known here:

WIKB AM-FM covers West Iron County on the AM and Forest Park on the FM, that is when both schools are playing on the same night. When either one or the other is playing only, then both AM and FM will carry that game.

Also, they cover Florence, WI games as well, when possible.

WNBY will cover Newberry football, basketball, and sometimes hockey. hasn't been quite as big as it was years ago. 97.9 outof the Soo (EUP- The Bear) covers EUP football games every friday, usually the big ones. Will cover lots of SAC games I'm sure.

Here on the west end WJMS 590 AM covers the sports action. They sometimes team up with other radio stations and run extra broadcasts on WIMI 99.7 FM.

Just installed a new outdoor antenna. It is working fairly well. I can pick up all of the FM stations from Escanaba/Gladstone, Marquette/Negaunee, Iron River, and Iron Mountain. Have not been able to get 99.9 out of Manistique yet, but I may try to point the antenna a little differently. Going to try some Menominee stations next. Anyone know who carries the Maroon games? Looking for FM stations because AM has very little range.

On the Friday Nights I do not attend a game in person, I should be able to listen to a whole range of games and keep the people on the site updated as to what is going on.

Lets make this easier on some to help me out with who covers what. Fill in the blanks if you can. First line is the station and the city, second line is the website, third line is who they cover for HS Football. I only did the FM stations and left out the Religious stations:

Marquette Stations

Postby FLGators81 » Sat Aug 14, 2004 6:20 pm

91.5 WUPX is Radio X - NMUs Student station. Northern controlls that radio site, no High School sports are played on it, actually no sports period are played on it.

92.3 WJPD is a Country station. I do not believe any High School teams are aired on the station.

94.1 WUPK - is the Bear. No Sports are aired on the station.

99.5 WNGE - are Oldies. No Sports are aired on the station.

107.7 WMQT - as you said - No Sports are aired on the station.

newbery games

Postby wanderer » Sat Sep 15, 2007 7:29 am

I've looked through the lists and haven't seen this one - sorry if someone else posted it:

96.7 (The Eagle?) is carrying Newberry football games. Adam Rahilly and John (sorry, John, I don't know how to spell your last name - someone help me out here please) are doing an excellent job announcing the games.

WTIQ 1450 OUT OF MANISTIQUE IS DIFFERENT FROM WPIQ 99.9 ...RRN OWNS 1450 AND GLR OWNS WPIQ 99.9. WTIQ COVERS BASKETBALL AND FOOTBALL WHEREAS WPIQ 99.9 COVERS EVERY SPORT INCLUDING TRACK, GOLF WRESTLING, VOLLEYBALL AND EVEN HAS LIMITED COVERAGE OF 7&8TH GRADE SPORTS.

Hey, Just to help you out. Its Adam Rahilly and John FOSGITT that do the games for Eagle 96.7 out of Newberry.

I used to work for the Eagle 6.7 before I left for college. We do Football, Girls Basketball, and Boys Basketball for Newberry and Engadine. We also feature weekly baseball and Softball broadcasts for NHS in the spring.
