    CHICAGO - Chicago sports radio powerhouse ESPN Radio 1000 (WMVP-AM) will continue to be the broadcast home for UIC men's basketball games during the upcoming 2010-11 season, after Director of Athletics Jim Schmidt announced a one-year partnership with the network for the second-consecutive season on Thursday.

    Through the agreement, fans will be able to listen to the Flames on ESPN 1000 18 times, with another four games airing on ESPNChicago.com, WMVP's official website. Adam Levinson will again handle the play-by-play duties this season, while UIC's second all-time leading scorer, Kenny Williams, returns to provide color commentary on the broadcasts.

    ESPN 1000 is part of the country's largest sports radio network. WMVP is a 50,000-watt station that reaches 36 states and Canada and features a mix of national and local programming such as Mike and Mike in the Morning, Waddle & Silvy, The Afternoon Saloon, The Scott Van Pelt Show and much more. In addition to UIC men's basketball, ESPN 1000 is also the official radio home of the Chicago Bulls.

    "We are extremely pleased to announce that we are renewing our partnership with ESPN 1000, and that the network will once again be the radio home for the Flames," said Schmidt. "It's an exciting time for our men's basketball program with new head coach Howard Moore on board; and we're excited about the opportunity for fans in 36 states and two countries to listen to our games on a regular basis. The reach and platforms that ESPN Radio offers is unprecedented, and we're happy to be a large part of that."

    Along with Flames men's basketball broadcasts on the air and online, ESPN 1000 provides synergetic coverage through television, print and online properties owned by "The Worldwide Leader in Sports."

    "We are pleased to renew our partnership with the UIC athletic department and look forward to a great season," said John Cravens, General Manager, ESPN Radio 1000 Chicago.
