The University of Detroit Mercy Department of Athletics has announced a new radio home for the Titan men's basketball team as they will partner with WLQV 92.7 FM & 1500 AM FaithTalk Detroit.
The games will simulcast live coverage on both frequencies and will also be available on a number of different apps for fans to listen on their computers, tablets or smartphones.
"I would like to thank the Salem Media Group and WLQV for their commitment to Detroit Mercy basketball and welcome them to the Titan family," said Detroit Mercy Director of Athletics Robert C. Vowels, Jr. "I believe the station will be a great home for the Titan men's basketball team and allow our fans to tune into a first-rate broadcast throughout this season and for the future."
"We're thrilled at the opportunity to add University of Detroit Mercy Men's Basketball to our expanding list of sports programming on our stations," said Chris MacCourtney, Operations Vice-President at the Salem Media Group. "Airing Titan men's basketball is a perfect fit for WLQV FaithTalk Detroit and the live sports option our listeners enjoy."
The stations carry a signal of 50,000 watts and can reach over 4 million people in the state of Michigan and Canada. All games will also be streamed on faithtalkdetroit.com, iHeart Radio, TuneIn, and on the station's mobile app, giving the proud Titan faithful and fan base an unprecedented number of ways to follow the red, white and blue.
"I think the ability for local fans to listen to the games while driving home or working around the house and spending time with friends, former teammates and alums is a great key to keeping the Titans alive in the community," said Vowels. "Add in the chance to listen on your phone with the numerous apps the station can be followed on or to listen online on your computer was a huge factor for us to make sure we are as accessible as possible to our family, fans, alums, donors and sponsors, especially during the pandemic we are going through."
