TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State football is coming to you through more radio waves and handheld devices this season.
In a season of increased hype and expectations for FSU, the Seminole IMG Sports Radio Network has added 12 additional affiliates in 11 cities in Florida and south Georgia. The broadcasts can now also be accessed through an iPhone or Droid.
The new affiliates include an additional FM station in Brunswick, Ga. (WSFN-FM 103.7), WSBB-AM 1230 in Daytona Beach, WWCN-AM in Fort Myers, an additional FM station in Fort Walton Beach (WFDM-FM 94.5), an additional FM station in Jacksonville (WBOB-FM 107.7), WEBY-AM 1330 in Milton, WBOB-FM 100.3 in Orange Park, an additional AM station in Orlando (WAMT-AM 1190), WPSL-AM 1590 in Port St. Lucie, WTMY-AM 1280 in Sarasota and two stations in Tampa (WHBO-AM 1080 and WWBA-AM 820).
"We have worked hard to build new affiliate relationships around the state and have invested in enhancing the live broadcast for all Seminole fans to enjoy," said Paul Phipps, Seminole IMG Sports Network General Manager. "We are committed to providing the best coverage in college sports."
In addition to increased affiliates, the Seminole IMG Sports Radio Network is increasing its presence at every FSU football game.
Tom Block has joined the broadcast team of Gene Deckerhoff and William Floyd. Block will serve as an on-field correspondent for each game and will provide insight, coach's comments and much more from the sidelines.
"We are extremely excited to have Tom Block as our sideline reporter," said Ryan Pensy, Seminole IMG Sports Network Coordinating Producer. "Our crew takes great pride in each broadcast, and this just gives fans another reason to turn down the TV audio and turn up the Seminole IMG Sports Network."
In addition to the increase in radio personnel for each of FSU's games, each of the broadcasts can now be listened to through the brand new Seminoles.com App.
The official application of Seminoles.com can be downloaded through Apple's App Store or through the Droid Market. To download, search "Florida State Seminoles Sports" through each of those devices and download the application that says "Official" and is created by CBS Interactive, Inc.
"We are also excited to announce that the streaming quality has improved this season," Pensy said. "When fans tune in online or on our official Seminoles.com app they can expect to hear the game in broadcast quality."
