Albany Athletics

104.5 The Team will now be home to all University at Albany Great Danes football and men's basketball games. The news was announced Thursday morning by the University's Director of Athletics Mark Benson.

"We are very excited to be aligning the UAlbany Athletics brand with the world's most recognizable sports brand, ESPN radio," said Benson. "The move to 104.5 FM ESPN radio offers us an opportunity to expand our media footprint with a tremendous listening audience, a great FM signal and Townsquare Media's creative promotional plan."

The UAlbany games will continue to be broadcast by longtime voice of the Great Danes, Rodger Wyland, and myself, his partner of six years, Zach Bye.

The first game of the football season will be on Friday, September 2, when the Danes play at the University of Buffalo.
