TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State University football fans in the panhandle and south Florida along with south Georgia can look forward to stronger radio signals and increased coverage with the addition of three new stations to the ISP Seminole radio network.
ISP general manager for Florida State Paul Phipps announced Wednesday that Florida State football games along with “The Jimbo Fisher Show” will now be broadcast by two stations in Panama City — WFLF (94.5 FM), a 100,000-watt station that covers northwest Florida and reaches into Alabama, and ESPN 590.
WWCN 770 AM in Ft. Myers, FL, joins the network this season along with WRFV 910 AM in Valdosta, Georgia, which will provide FSU coverage throughout southern Georgia.
ISP is also pleased to announce a renewed partnership with WFTL (850 AM) in West Palm Beach, which will serve the Seminole fan base in south Florida.
“We are very pleased with the increased coverage throughout the state and southeast,” said FSU Director of Athletics Randy Spetman. “We have made it a priority to increase our coverage and ISP has been successful in that effort even during challenging economic times.”
Michael Reineri. Vice President of Clear Channel Radio in Panama City said the partnership with the Seminoles is a perfect fit. “We are very excited to be the new home for Florida State football and basketball in Panama City. This is FSU Country so this is a great affiliation for 94.5 WFLA and ESPN 590.”
Steve Lapa with 850 WFTL in West Palm Beach echoed the same sentiments. “All of us at 850 WFTL are excited about the great opportunity to bring an expanded FSU program to South Florida fans. Go ‘Noles!”
The network this season will also include a new presence in Fort Myers, FL and the Valdosta, GA marketplace. Both stations are excited to be joining the radio network and looking forward to a great relationship.
