DePaul University this week announced its broadcast schedule for its Men's Basketball games for the 2011-2012 season. For the 15th season in a row, WSCR-AM/670 The Score will air the majority of the DePaul Blue Demons games on the radio. Also returning this year will be games televised locally on WCIU-TV 26.2/U-Too and nationally on the Big East Network and ESPN3/ESPN2/ESPNU.
WSCR-AM will broadcast 25 DePaul games this season, starting with the season opener against UC Riverside on November 9th at 8:00pm. Due to scheduling conflicts, an additional three games that would have aired on WSCR-AM will instead air on WYLL-AM. WSCR-AM/WBBM-AM's Zach Zaidman returns as the play-by-play announcer, with former WLS-TV sportscaster Jeff Blanzy taking over as color analyst. Blanzy began calling games for the DePaul Blue Demons last season, filling in for analyst Laurence Holmes, who was unable to do road games. (Blanzy also filled in as play-by-play announcer for one game.)
In addition to hearing the games on the radio, DePaul fans can subscribe to hear the call by Zach Zaidman and Jeff Blanzy for every single one of the DePaul Blue Demons games online, as well as watch selected video streaming broadcasts of non-conference games on BlueTube, which is DePaul's "All Access" online audio/video player.
