Audacy/New York and Rutgers Athletics ink a multi-year agreement to make WFAN-AM & FM the home for Rutgers football and WCBS-AM the flagship station for Rutgers men's basketball. Beginning with the 2022-23 season, WFAN will air all regular games and post-season football games, including a 30-minute pre-game and post-game show. Also beginning this season, WCBS will air all regular season and post-season men's basketball games, including a 15-minute pre-game and post-game show.

"Rutgers athletics is on the rise under Greg Schiano and Steve Pikiell in the Big Ten, bringing excitement and anticipation to Tri-State area fans," said Audacy New York Market President Chris Oliviero. "WFAN and WCBS 880 will provide listeners with unmatched coverage of the Scarlet Knights and we are honored to add Rutgers to Audacy's market-leading play-by-play portfolio."

"We are excited to announce this partnership with Audacy," added Rutgers Athletic Director Pat Hobbs. "Having our teams on WFAN and WCBS is a great opportunity to expand our reach to sports fans in the New York metropolitan area. Our programs are having tremendous success across the board, and this allows for so many more fans to enjoy the excitement and join Rutgers Nation."

Both Rutgers football and men's basketball broadcasts will also be available on the Audacy app in the local market territory. Both stations will also support the partnership and on-campus events through on-air, digital and social media promotion.
