USD Athletics and BCA announce new radio partnership
Sept. 6, 2017

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego and Broadcast Company of the Americas is excited to announce they have come to terms on an agreement that grants BCA the right to carry all USD football and men’s basketball games on either the Mighty 1090 or ESPN 1700 for the upcoming 2017-18 season. All five of USD’s home football games, beginning with this Saturday’s 2:00 p.m. contest against Western New Mexico University, will air on the Mighty 1090. USD will also have a one-hour pre-game show leading up to each home football game that will air on the Mighty 1090. USD’s six road football contests will air on ESPN 1700.

The agreement also calls for all USD men’s basketball regular-season and post-season games to air on either the Mighty 1090 or ESPN 1700. A minimum of 10 of USD’s regular-season games will be featured on the 50,000 watt Mighty 1090 with the remaining games airing on ESPN 1700. All games will be streamed and available online through Mighty1090.com as well as through the Mighty 1090 Mobile App.

“I am very excited about this opportunity and partnership with BCA,” said Bill McGillis, USD Executive Director of Athletics. “We have an outstanding Division I athletics program, and it is important that we share our story with a much wider audience. This agreement, and our association with the tremendous brand that is The Mighty 1090, and its 50,000 watt signal, will enable us to do that. We have one of the nation’s very best college football programs – albeit one that for too long has been under the radar – and an emerging men’s basketball program, and I want the people of San Diego County and beyond to be able to listen to our games and learn much more about this great university. I appreciate Mike Glickenhaus and his team recognizing the excellence of our program and the value of a strong partnership.”

Additionally, USD will be featured in weekly interviews on their Mighty 1090 prime time talk shows, including the Dan Sileo Show (6-9am), the Darren Smith Show (12-3:30 pm) and the Scott & BR Show (3:30-7:00 pm). Each of these interviews will also be available on demand in the Mighty 1090 Podcast Center as well as available via iTunes.

“We are very excited about our new partnership with the University of San Diego Toreros,” said Mike Glickenhaus, President & Market Manager for Broadcast Company of the Americas. “They have a great vision for the future of USD Athletics and we look forward to being part of that. While this partnership will predominantly showcase USD’s football and men’s basketball programs, there will be additional opportunities to highlight and showcase other Torero programs, student-athletes, coaches and administrators. We also look forward to working with Jack Cronin who enters his 11th year as voice of the Toreros calling the action for both football and men’s basketball programs.”
