All Eagles’ football games in 2014 will continue to be carried on the radio throughout Mid-Missouri and online worldwide following an agreement announced Monday morning between Central Methodist University Athletics and Moberly’s Regional Radio, a property of Digity Companies, LLC.
Starting with the Eagles’ season-opener at NCAA Division I FCS opponent Southern University in Baton Rouge, La., on Sept. 6, all Central Methodist regular-season football games will air on one of the four stations on their network. The majority of Eagles games will be carried on 99.9 The Captain with options to also broadcast on KTCM Glory 97.3, KRES 104.7 or KWIX 92.5 FM.
The Regional Radio family of stations can be heard throughout Mid-Missouri and online via and Regional Radio’s website.
Central Methodist and Regional Radio have worked jointly to broadcast Eagle athletic contests in multiple sports since August 2005. Central Methodist will continue as the official sponsor of live streaming sports on www.centralmoinfo.com.
“We are extremely excited to announce our continued partnership with Digity and specifically with 99.9 The Captain,” Central Methodist vice president for Institutional Growth and Student Engagement Ken Oliver said. “Due to the station’s strength of signal and commitment to carry all of our football programming, we have a tremendous opportunity to grow the footprint of Central Methodist Athletics, both across the Mid-Missouri region and beyond.”
“We believe in strong local partnerships, and CMU is certainly one of them, not only with Eagle sports but also with the various programs of the University,” station manager Les Tuttle articulated. “They have been especially gracious in their hosting of our Area High School All-Star banquets for both football and basketball. We’re excited to see what another year brings.”
KRES will continue to air radio programing related to Central Methodist Athletics, including weekly interviews with coaches and players. Archives will continue to be available on CMUEagles.com.
