The Voice of The Tigers

WNAU taps thirty-two basketball contests for radio broadcasts

Fans of the Northeast basketball teams that cannot be in attendance at certain contests have a secondary option of keeping up with the action using their radio. For the second year in a row, WNAU 1470 AM out of New Albany will be the home for select Northeast hoops games over the airwaves during the 2013-14 campaign. The local station will broadcast a combined total of 32 regular season contests which began Monday, November 11 when the Lady Tigers and Tigers host Columbia State (Tenn.) Community College. Four additional non-division dates are scheduled for transmission. Each of them are home contests, include a lone men’s outing against Dyersburg State (Tenn.) Community College on November 21 and the January 13 women’s only matchup versus Jackson State (Tenn.) Community College. Doubleheaders at Bonner Arnold Coliseum versus Gadsden State (Ala.) Community College on December 2 and Jones County Junior College on January 7 will air on WNAU-AM as well. Every Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) North Division game is slated for broadcast, beginning on December 5 when Northeast hosts archrival Itawamba. After a great gridiron season in the booth, Jeremy Kennedy remains in his role as the Voice of the Tigers for the 2013-14 Northeast hoops campaigns. Tune in to Kennedy fifteen minutes before every tipoff for the pregame show by setting your dial to 1470 AM. Those that cannot pick up the broadcast in their area can still listen to the Lady Tigers and Tigers by webcast. A link to WNAU-AM’s live Internet stream is available on the Northeast athletic website, www.nemccathletics.com.
