MEDIA INFORMATION
PITT RADIO & TV
Color analyst Bill Fralic (left) and play-by-play man Bill Hillgrove will call all the radio action for Pitt football this year.
PITT AND CLEAR CHANNEL
The University of Pittsburgh, its multi-media rights
holder ISP Sports and Clear Channel Communications
provide the Panthers with thoroughly comprehensive
radio coverage. Pitt football is simulcast on FM
NewsTalk 104.7 (WPGB-FM) and Fox Sports
Radio 970 (WBGG-AM).
Panthers fans enjoy extensive programming
surrounding football broadcasts, including:
■
■
■
A two-hour football pregame show and 60-minute
postgame coverage.
“Panther Hotline,” an hour-long call-in show
following postgame coverage.
A weekly Dave Wannstedt Show on Fox Sports
Radio 970, airing live from the Pittsburgh Steak
Co., on Wednesdays from 7:30-8:30 p.m.
For the 32nd consecutive year, Bill Hillgrove
will be the “Voice of the Panthers.” Hillgrove’s
concise, accurate and descriptive style truly paints
the picture for Pitt fans listening throughout the
network. Hillgrove has a long association with the
Panthers and Pittsburgh sports scene. Prior to
taking over the play-by-play duties, Hillgrove served
as the Panthers’ color analyst from 1970-73 when
the late Ed Conway provided play-by-play description.
He has also served as the play-by-play man for
Pitt basketball broadcasts since 1969.
A popular and well-known Pittsburgh sports
personality, Hillgrove has long been a Panther
ambassador of good will. He is a 1962 graduate of
Duquesne and has also been the Pittsburgh
Steelers’ play-by-play announcer since 1995.
Bill Fralic, one of college football’s greatest
offensive linemen during his Pitt playing career from
1981-84, enters his second year as color analyst.
Fralic was a three-time first team All-American,
earning unanimous status his final two seasons.
He became the first offensive lineman to twice
finish in the top 10 of the Heisman Trophy balloting,
placing sixth in 1984 and eighth in 1983.
The second player taken overall in the 1985
NFL Draft, Fralic went on to an exceptional pro
career from 1985-93, playing eight years with the
Atlanta Falcons and his final season with the Detroit
Lions. He was selected to the Pro Bowl four times.
Pitt games are also carried by the Pitt Football
Radio Network. Affiliates as of July 1 are listed
