Earlier this week it was announced that the University at Albany and ESPN Radio 104.5 The Team have partnered together to bring Great Danes football and men's basketball to our airwaves.

It's a win for both sides, as we get to bring high-level Division I athletics to the Albany market and it's a win for UAlbany, which gets more and more exposure as it looks to expand its brand in the Capital Region.

It was also announced that Rodger Wyland and Zach Bye will continue to be the voices of the Great Danes, which is a win for the listeners who like familiarity with their broadcasters.

UAlbany Athletic Director Mark Benson joined us earlier this week to talk about the move and he said he was excited for the partnership between the Danes and 104.5 The Team.

We are excited too, Mark.
