Since we dropped AC a decade ago, there has been a hole in Traverse City for this type of music", said Barr. "We are excited to be a part of your office again".

Fox UP to broadcast 7 Michigan Tech-Northern Michigan University games in 2014-15

WLUC TV's partnership with Michigan Tech and Northern Michigan will continue in 2014-15 with broadcasts of seven events throughout the year. All four hockey games, two women's basketball games and the football game between the teams will air live on Fox UP throughout 13 of 15 counties in the Upper Peninsula and four counties in northern Wisconsin.

The partnership began a year ago with two Tech-Northern hockey broadcasts on Fox UP. The coverage of the rivalry will expand for the upcoming season.

"Due to the overwhelming positive response to, and success of last seasons' broadcasts, we are pleased to be able to continue to grow this venue and further expand the great local sports content that the viewers in our communities enjoy," said Rob Jamros, General Manager at WLUC.

The first event to be televised will be the football game on Sept. 27. The Huskies and Wildcats will meet at the Superior Dome in Marquette for a 7 p.m. kickoff. In hockey, the teams will square off in two home-and-home series--one Jan. 9-10 and the other Mar. 6-7. The Jan. 9 and Mar. 7 games will be at the Berry Events Center in Marquette while the Jan. 10 and Mar. 6 contests will be played at the John MacInnes Student Ice Arena in Houghton. The two Tech-Northern women's basketball games are both in February. Tech will host the Feb. 2 game at the SDC Gym. NMU is home Feb. 26 at the Berry.

"We're pleased to be able to continue the coverage of hockey and showcase one of the best rivalries in the country," said Tech athletic director Suzanne Sanregret. "We're also excited to be able to extend our contract with WLUC to include football and women's basketball. The rivalry between Tech and Northern in all of our sports is always entertaining, and we're happy to be able to share it with fans throughout the UP."

"Last year's broadcasts were a positive experience for everyone involved," said Northern Michigan athletic director Forrest Karr. "I'm happy for the many talented coaches and student-athletes from both schools that we are continuing to grow this partnership."
