    WLW augments the broadcast coverage with pregame and postgame programming.  Additionally, head coach Tommy Tuberville and Mick Cronin are featured on an hour-long call-in show each week from the original Montgomery Inn, allowing Cincinnati fans to meet the coach and ask their questions up close and personal.

    TELEVISION
    When it comes to television, the University of Cincinnati has one of the most extensive television packages in the country as its partners cover not only the state of Ohio, but the nation.

    Seven BIG EAST Conference members are located in the top 12 media markets (DMAs), and 12 members are located in the top 34, covering over 25 percent of all U.S. markets - by far, the largest coverage of any conference. Since its inception in 1979, the BIG EAST Conference has prided itself as a creative innovator in television and publicity concepts.

    The BIG EAST has continued that tradition today by providing student-athletes at its 16 member institutions with unparalleled exposure through new landmark agreements with its two primary television partners: ESPN and CBS Sports. The specifics from each of the league’s television agreements are outlined below.

    The 2012-13 academic year marks the sixth year of a six-year agreement between the BIG EAST Conference and ESPN, Inc. for men’s and women’s basketball and football. Both founded in 1979, ESPN and the BIG EAST have enjoyed a relationship that has existed for the lives of both entities. The current landmark men’s and women’s basketball and football contracts have ensured a long-term continuation of that relationship. The number of guaranteed BIG EAST Conference appearances in these sports has been expanded to unprecedented levels under these pacts. Further, they ensure that the BIG EAST will continue to have a solid foothold in national and regional television and new media exposure in the foreseeable future.

    In addition, the BIG EAST Network, produced by ESPN Regional Television (ERT) will continue to distribute its Game of the Week package to a nationally syndicated audience, reaching more than 30 million homes. The package is carried by WKRC Local 12 in Cincinnati.

    UC is in a multi-year agreement with FOX Sports Ohio that makes the network the exclusive regional cable home of UC football and men's basketball. Programming includes game telecasts, preseason and postseason specials, football game replays on Sunday nights, and a weekly in-season coaches shows titled ‘Bearcats Sports Weekly With Tommy Tuberville and Mick Cronin’.
