Beasley Media Group Launches FOX Sports New Jersey


Beasley Media Group announces 1450 WCTC-AM & WCTC-X1 W228DY 93.5 has officially launched FOX Sports New Jersey. The new format went into effect at midnight on Sunday, September 26. The station will air the entire FOX Sports Radio lineup, apart from a few hours on the weekend, in which it will feature local programming. During the respective seasons, FOX Sports New Jersey will continue to air Rutgers football and basketball games plus The Somerset Patriots baseball games.

"1450 WCTC is a heritage radio station serving Central New Jersey for 75 years," said Beasley Media Group Senior Vice President and Regional Market Manager Dan Finn. "In 1947, WCTC began airing Rutgers Football and this has continued to this day. In addition, 21 years ago, we started airing the Somerset Patriots baseball franchise which is now a AA New York Yankees affiliate. It really made sense to dedicate the rest of our programming to sports and FOX Sports Radio is the best sports programming out there. In addition, 1450 WCTC just began simulcasting on 93.5 FM expanding our coverage area. It's a very exciting time for WCTC, especially during our 75th anniversary."

"For decades, some of the most popular content on WCTC has been local sports programming and we're now excited to offer our audience the best possible 24/7 sports content," said Beasley Media Group Chief Content Officer Justin Chase. "FOX Sports has an amazing line-up of hosts like Dan Patrick, Colin Cowherd, Doug Gottlieb and more and we know the sports fans in New Jersey will enjoy them as much as we do."

"The opportunity to partner with a historic station in a region full of passionate sports fans excites us greatly," said Don Martin, Senior Vice President of Sports Programming for Premiere Networks and Scott Shapiro, FOX Sports Radio Vice President of Sports Programming in a joint statement. "It's an honor to join WCTC during its celebratory 75th anniversary!"

All current fulltime WCTC employees will remain with the station.
