Temple University Athletics and its multimedia rights holder, Learfield IMG College's Temple Sports Properties, sign four-year extensions with WPEN-FM (97.5 The Fanatic) and WPHT-AM/Philadelphia to continue as the radio homes of Temple Football and Men's Basketball. The 2020 football season will mark the seventh consecutive season Owls games will air on 97.5 The Fanatic while the 2020-21 will mark the 20th straight year that Temple basketball games can be heard on WPHT.

"We're excited to continue our relationship with these two broadcast industry leaders," said Temple University Director of Athletics Dr. Patrick Kraft. "We have had a great relationship with each station and both have a broad reach that allow fans throughout the Delaware Valley to follow Temple Athletics."

Veteran Philadelphia broadcaster Harry Donahue, now in his 19th season, will continue to handle the play-by-play duties for both Temple Football and Men's Basketball. Temple Hall of Famers Paul Palmer (8th season) and John Baum (23rd season) will serve as analysts for the football and basketball broadcasts, respectively.
