Saturday, July 24, 2010

Nashville, Tenn. - The Heritage Sports Radio Network announced their 2010 Football Broadcast Schedule with Tennessee State University Football featured in two games on Sirius XM Satellite Radio.

The Tigers vs. Jackson State in the Southern Heritage Classic (9/11) and North Carolina A&T in the Circle City Classic (10/2) will be one of the headliners for the "Game of the Week" during HSRN's highlighted "Super 7 Series". The Super 7 Series is among the network's 19-game broadcast.

Last season, HSRN opened their "Super 7 Series" at TSU's John Merritt Classic against Alabama A&M on Sept. 5, 2009. The game was included in their 15-game coverage of HBCU Classic games and rivalry match-ups.

"We are excited and proud to give fans across the country a platform to enjoy the coverage of their favorite teams," said HSRN CEO Omarr Bashir.

HSRN's coverage of TSU Football on Sirius XM Satellite Radio complements Tiger action on the air in 2010.

TSU Football's on air appearances include five television games with the Tigers appearing on Fox Sports South (FSN) vs. Jackson State (Southern Heritage Classic - 9/11), Versus (VS) against Florida A&M and Wazoo Sports Network's Ohio Valley Conference (OVC) "Game of the Week" coverage in the Nashville area on UPN 30.

In addition, Fans can continue to tune in with the Big Blue Spots Network on the radio with WVOL 1470 AM (Nashville, Tenn.) serving as the flagship with extended coverage through affiliates WOJG 94.7 FM (Jackson, Tenn.), WMRB 910 AM (Columbia, Tenn.) and www.tsuradio.com.

The OVC will also air the John Merritt Classic (9/4) and games from around the league with their online video web stream on OVCSports.TV.

Founded in 2006, HSRN was created to provide a voice for the HBCU community. For over 100 years HBCU's have participated in collegiate athletics with little to no media coverage.  Stars like Walter Payton, Althea Gibson, Doug Williams, Charles Oakley and Michael Strahan are just a few of the many superstars who were HBCU athletes. There are approximately 7 million fans of HBCU sports that were media orphans in search of a home. HSRN is the only national radio network dedicated to HBCU sports. Our goal is to fuse the greats of the past with the stars of today to showcase the significance of this unique and underserved sports community.
