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 stream. The staff also broadcasts select road football, men’s and women’s basketball and softball games.
In addition to live broadcasts, there are a multitude of programs produced in house each week.
Wednesday night is Sports Night at WMUL. It starts with “FC 88.1,” which focuses its topics of conversation on soccer around the globe and locally. Then it’s “Sportsview,” which features guests from a Marshall Olympic Sports team talking about their sport, how the season is going and getting 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 amongst a panel, 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 previous week in Marshall Athletics. During football season, “Conference USA” report airs Fridays at 6 p.m. and previews that week’s games involving teams in Conference USA.
The staff also produces packages throughout the week that air as part of the FM 88 Sports Report each weekday during Newscaster 88.
