The University of Michigan has announced a multi-year contract extension with CBS Radio for broadcast rights for Wolverines football, basketball and hockey.

Specific terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

WWJ-AM 950 will continue to be the flagship station for UM football and 97.1 The Ticket will simulcast select games. The Ticket also will carry a weekly interview with UM football coach Jim Harbaugh.

Michigan basketball will continue to air on WWJ and UM hockey will be on WXYT-AM 1270.

“This will continue to provide a consistent flagship home for Michigan football and basketball broadcasts in southeast Michigan and will place our hockey games on a regular channel in the market,” said UM athletic director Warde Manuel. “We look forward to another multi-year partnership on game broadcasts and coaches radio shows.”

The new deal does not change anything for Michigan's radio affiliate in Ann Arbor, WTKA-AM 1050. UM football, basketball and hockey, as well as women's basketball, will continue to be broadcast on WTKA.
