The FM 88 Sports Team is home to the most complete coverage of Marshall University Athletics. Live broadcasts of every home football, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball, baseball and softball games can be heard on the air and online through our streaming service. The staff also broadcasts all women’s basketball and softball road games, as well as select road football and men’s basketball games.
In addition to live broadcasts, there are a multitude of programs produced in house each week.
Wednesday night is Sports Night at WMUL. The night kicks off with “Sportsview,” at 6 p.m. “Sportsview” features guests from the Marshall Olympic Sports teams, talking about their sport, how the season is going and is an opportunity to get to know the athletes better. After that is “Sportsbuzz,” which is similar to ESPN’s “Around the Horn,” in that national sports topics are debated among a group of panelists, with a winner being selected by that week’s moderator.
On Fridays during the fall and spring semesters, “Herd Roundup” airs at 5:30 p.m. and recaps the week that was in Marshall Athletics.
The staff also produces packages throughout the week that air as part of “Herd Roundup.” The staff also does the FM 88 Sports Report each weekday during Newscenter 88.
