News Talk 1620 will once again be the place to "Watch The Aggies Win." After a quarter of a century, Aggie football is coming back to WTAW.
Bryan Broadcasting announced today that 16-20 will once again be the home to football broadcasts on the Texas A&M Sports Network. The five-year deal with Learfield Communications will mean WTAW and KZNE will be the flagship stations for Aggie sports.
Baseball and men's basketball will continue on 1620, with 1150 "The Zone" hosting women's basketball and select softball games.
"I think the anticipation is just going to grow and grow as we get closer to September," said Tom Turbiville, who is part of a number of programs on both stations. "We manufacture ideas around here, and the ideas are going to flow everyday. How can we make this better? How can we do this better?"
"There's a whole generation of Aggies out there to whom WTAW stands for 'Watch The Aggies Win,'" said Ben Downs of Bryan Broadcasting. "We think that after 25 years, it's great to have them back again."
The 2006 season will mark the first time Aggie football will be on WTAW in 25 years.
