The UMTC Gophers have their Fox Sports North TV network on their side and now the Bulldogs have their network in place. Well, network-light and in a different form of media, but a network nonetheless. And it is great news! With success comes the opportunity to branch out to fans and possible recruits to UMD. More coverage is always good.
The announcement of a Northern Minnesota radio network carrying UMD hockey games this season provides the ground work for expanded interest. The televised games are already broadcast on regional (statewide) Charter cable, but it leaves many games out. The new radio home will provide all games to the expanded audience. So now if you are on the move and want your Bulldog coverage, you have a much better chance to get your fix!
The Bulldogs will be broadcast on the Fan 1490 in Duluth/Superior; KQ 105.5 in Grand Rapids/Hibbing; and KQ 106.7 in Ely/Virginia. It is unknown at this point if streaming will be available as hockey information is not currently on the “Bulldogs on the Air” section of their webpage.
