JoeD says that 1080 is done with UConn games after this season.

Anyone know why or where the games are going?

This is terrible. I know a lot of folks rag on Joe D on here, but he's our guy. He's the voice of UConn sports. Every good memory I have of our teams includes his voice on the call. This is so dumb and I truly hope there's huge push back from fans. Unbelievable

This is crazy. Another blow to the program too. Everyone listened to Joe D. No national relevance and now zero state broadcast media relevance. At least we have CBS Sports Network and SNY Head bang

I'm not sure it means Joe D won't be calling games, it just might be that it is on another station :confused:

One big . Been listening since Kimball, Ritter, Delasala. Spider, Wes and other greats from yesteryear. UConn falling further into a black hole. We need some frickin good news. Whose got any?
That wasn't a straight run for WTIC. They dumped UConn in the middle of the Perno doldrums and took them back after The Shot. Is history repeating itself?

Wonder if conference affiliation had to do with this. Had to be costly for TIC to send Joe D to Tulsa, Tulane, East Carolina opposed to Providence, St. Johns, Nova

With attendance down and lack of interest in UConn bball recently, I wonder how many people are still listening to UConn games on WTIC, anyway. This is 2018.

I’m guessing it has something to do with IMG.

UConn doesn’t negotiate these things directly.

Yes was just on 1080 that they "couldn't reach an agreement with IMG..."
