Pacers Can Now Be Heard on 107.5 The Fan
February 19, 2013
INDIANAPOLIS – Emmis Communications announced Tuesday afternoon the launch of Indianapolis’ first FM sports station, 107.5 The Fan, which will allow Indiana Pacers’ fans to hear games on both The Fan 1070 AM and 107.5 FM.
"This announcement will help us reach even more fans as the Pacers continue to be one of the more successful teams in the NBA," said Pacers Sports & Entertainment Chief Operating Officer Rick Fuson. "Emmis has been a great partner for both the Pacers and the Indiana Fever and this is another example of them enhancing our product."
"The launch of FM 107.5 The Fan demonstrates Emmis' deep commitment to making 'The Fan' Indy's dominant sports brand,” Charlie Morgan, SVP/Market Manager of Emmis-Indianapolis said. "Given that Emmis is credited with creating the first sports-talk station in the United States (The Fan in New York City), it only seems fitting that we would deliver the city’s first FM sports station to Indy's sports-loving fans."
The Fan 1070 AM/107.5 FM is the flagship station of the Pacers, the Indianapolis Colts, Butler basketball, Indiana University football, the Indy Car Series and the Fever. Play-by-play on 1070 The Fan will also be carried live on 107.5 FM The Fan unless two games conflict, and then the games will be split between 1070 and 107.5FM.
