Vanderbilt Athletics, Cromwell Media Announce Multiyear Agreement

Commodore games and programs moving radio broadcasts to new flagship station

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vanderbilt Athletics and Cromwell Media announced Monday that the two organizations will be entering a new multiyear partnership beginning with the 2023-24 academic year.

102.5 The Game will be the primary flagship station for all Commodore football, men’s basketball and baseball games—along with the Commodore Hour, Vanderbilt’s weekly radio show—with those contests simulcast on 106.3 FM as well. When conflicts arise due to the Nashville Predators’ schedule, those program’s broadcasts are set to air on 94.9 FM, which will also serve as the home for Vandy women’s basketball.

“Vanderbilt Athletics looks forward to building on our strong relationship with Cromwell Media,” said Candice Lee, Vanderbilt vice chancellor for athletics and university affairs and athletic director. “We’re excited to partner with the proven voice of Nashville sports talk radio, and are committed to reaching as many supporters as possible in the community we call home.”

“We couldn’t be more excited about our newly expanded relationship with Vanderbilt Athletics,” said Bud Walters, Cromwell Media president. “For the last three years we’ve been their proud broadcast partner for football and men’s basketball. The addition of baseball and women’s basketball now provides generations of Vandy fans and alumni the ability to hear all the games and coaches shows all under one roof. This is historic at every level and we can’t wait to get started!”

Vandy’s first game broadcast on 102.5 The Game will be on Aug. 26 when the Dore football team plays host to Hawai’i.
