“We are excited about the announcement of the Brewer Media Group and WTZO 105.1 FM becoming the new home for the Mocs Sports Network,” said UTC Athletic Director Rick Hart.  “This partnership will allow UTC Athletics to have one location on your radio dial while expanding and enhancing the listening area to accommodate our growing fan base.  We are also thrilled to continue to have first-class broadcasters with both Jim Reynolds and Larry Ward returning as the voices of the Mocs and Lady Mocs.”

 

"I've been a big fan of UTC for many years and we're looking forward to being the Flagship for the Mocs Sports Network,” said Jim Brewer, II, president of Brewer Media Group.


Hank Cobb, general manager for Mocs Sports Properties, added, “Our goal is to create the best possible radio network for fans, students, alumni and sponsors, and we are excited about our partnership with WTZO and the quality programming we know they’ll provide.”
