POUGHKEEPSIE, NEW YORK – The Marist Athletics Department and iHeartMedia of the Hudson Valley announced Rock 93.3 will be the new home of Marist Football. Marist and iHeartMedia are long-time partners and have teamed up to broadcast countless football and men’s and women’s basketball broadcasts over the years.
“It is such an honor to be a partner with Marist College and Marist Athletics,” iHeartMedia market president Chuck Benfer said. “Over the past couple years, we have aired Marist Football and Marist Women's Basketball games on Rock 93.3 when there were conflicts on WKIP, so making the full time commitment to Marist Football by making Rock 93.3 the official home of Marist Football just makes sense to me. This is a benefit to our listeners, the sponsors and their sports program. I couldn't be happier or prouder. Go Red Foxes!”
Geoff Brault and Ed Weir will continue to call the action live for Marist football for the second straight season. Weir has been the voice of Marist Football for 38 years, while Brault has been calling games for nine seasons. Broadcasts will begin 15 minutes prior to kickoff each Saturday. Games can be heard throughout the Hudson Valley on Rock 93-3, and worldwide on the FREE iHeartMedia app.
Marist will begin the 2015 season on Saturday, when it travels to Lewisburg, Pa. to take on the Bucknell Bison in a non-conference contest. Opening kickoff is set for 6 p.m. The Red Foxes will begin the home portion of their schedule on Saturday, Sept. 19, when they host two-time defending Northeast Conference champions Sacred Heart on Fireworks Night. Game time is set for 6 p.m. Tickets for all five home contests are available at http://www.MaristTickets.com.
