The new additions also increase the geographic coverage area of the network across the state. Station managers said they were glad to be able to continue broadcasting Mountaineer sports across their territories.
"WHAJ has been the home of the Mountaineers in southern West Virginia for many years, and we look forward to continuing the Mountaineer Pride tradition with the new IMG network provider," said WHAJ General Manager Danny Clemons.
"We're so excited to work with IMG to take our coverage of WVU sports to the next level," said Lacey Hardy, West Virginia sports director at WQWV-FM, which broadcasts across the Potomac Highlands.
"The only downfall is having to wait until the season kicks off," Hardy said.
Each of the new stations has agreed to air both football and men's basketball gameday programs, along with the teams' respective coaches shows. They will also air a daily "Mountaineer Minute" report that will be produced by IMG Audio.
IMG also plans to broadcast audio of each game broadcast online via streaming audio. Games will also air on the Sirius/XM satellite radio network.
Though it has announced additional affiliates, the company still has yet to announce its broadcast and play-by-play crew. Officials said Thursday that announcement would occur at a later date.
