Nov. 5, 2010
CHICAGO - For the upcoming season, UIC head men's basketball coach Howard Moore will have a weekly podcast available exclusively on UICFlames.com, it was announced Friday. The weekly interview will be conducted by Adam Levinson, the play-by-play man for the UIC Basketball Radio Network.
Fans will have the opportunity to be directly involved in the podcast, which will be posted in its entirety on UICFlames.com every Wednesday morning during the 2010-11 campaign. One segment during the 30-minute interview will be reserved for fan questions - those interested in having their questions answered by Moore should send them to UICHoops@gmail.com no later than Tuesday at 9 a.m. each week.
The podcast is the latest multi-media addition to UICFlames.com, the official athletics website. Live video and audio from every home game, and each road contest during the Horizon League slate, will also be available on UICFlames.com through the Horizon League Network. Streaming restrictions may apply for certain national television broadcasts.
Additionally, "Flame Throwers," the official blog of UIC Basketball, was launched last month on the men's basketball page. Each of Moore's weekly podcasts will be archived in their own section of the blog throughout the season.
On Thursday, the UIC Athletic Department announced new partnerships with both Comcast SportsNet and ESPN Radio 1000 Chicago. Five of UIC's contests during Horizon League play will be televised locally by Comcast SportsNet, while an additional three contests will be carried live on the network, including two Horizon League "Games of the Week."
For the second-straight year, ESPN 1000 (WMVP-AM) will be the broadcast home for UIC basketball. 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. Levinson will handle the play-by-play duties, while UIC's second all-time leading scorer, Kenny Williams, returns to provide color commentary on the broadcasts.
