Regional Media to Exclusively Broadcast Bettendorf Bulldogs High School Sports

 

(Bettendorf) Regional Media- Virden Broadcasting has announced a new partnership with Bettendorf High School.  Rewind 93.9 WYEC will become the exclusive home for the Bettendorf Bulldogs for all online and on air broadcasts.

Regional Media will no longer broadcast Rock Island Rocks games on Rewind 93.9 WYEC and QuadCityDailyNews.com .

When asked about local sports coverage, Regional Media’s President and CEO Fletcher Ford said, “With exclusive coverage comes commitment to the student athletes, their parents, and the community that follows them. That is why our team covers every game. Not being able to provide game coverage for ALL games would ultimately hurt the radio listener experience causing some games to not be heard at all. We are pleased that Bettendorf shares the same passion and the goals of our company!”

Beginning with the 2015/2016 season, Regional Media’s Rewind 93.9WYEC, along with QuadCityDailyNews.com, will be broadcasting live ALL Varsity Boys Basketball, Boys Football games and additional coverage of summer training camps and live coach's interviews throughout the off-season.

Regional Media Virden Broadcasting entered into a multi-year agreement with Bettendorf High School to broadcast many seasons of local sports. Local Sports broadcasting, along with various other local outreach programs,  are an important part of Regional Media’s culture and vision.

Kevin Skillet, Associate Principal and Activities Director from Bettendorf High School says, "Bettendorf High School is very excited to partner with Rewind 93.9 WYEC for coverage of all of our home and away football and boys basketball games starting in the 2015-16 school year.  This is a great opportunity for our students, parents, and fans to stay connected to our teams through live radio broadcasting of these events.  We have alumni all over the world, and I feel confident they will appreciate the live internet streaming of the games"
