Cougars Find Radio Home on Campus

HOUSTON, Texas---Chet Gladchuk, Director of Athletics at the University of Houston, today announced a radio partnership with KUHF-FM, the University-owned radio station located on the UH main campus. KUHF-FM, located at 88.7 on the dial, will broadcast all Cougar men's basketball games during the 2000-2001 season.

Gladchuk is elated the Cougars found a home right on campus. "We are very excited that our Cougar fans will be able to tune into the University of Houston's radio station, KUHF-FM, to listen to Cougar Basketball this year," commented Gladchuk. "We believe that not only will it be a great venue for our games, but hope that it also will introduce some of our UH fans to this great station and its entire format of quality music and NPR news and programming. We see this partnership as a great benefit to both Cougar Basketball and to KUHF."

John M. Proffitt-General Manager and C.E.O. of KUHF-FM-concurs with Gladchuk.

"The basketball broadcasts are an opportunity to further enhance KUHF's already extensive partnership programs with the University of Houston," said Proffitt. "This new opportunity diversifies our community outreach as well as our support for the University of Houston and the more than 150,000 Cougar alumni in our listening area. We believe that while maintaining the station's primary commitment to the fine arts, classical music and NPR news, this added programming will also expose new listeners to our station."

Beginning with the Cougars season opener versus Air Force on November 16, at the BCA Classic in Winston-Salem, N.C., KUHF-FM will broadcast 28 regular season games, plus any additional Conference USA Tournament and postseason contests.

The 2000-2001 season also brings a new voice to the Cougars, as Craig Ackerman jumps on board to call all the Houston basketball games. Ackerman brings a wealth of play-by-play experience to the Cougar broadcasts, having been the voice of both of the Rice Owls men and women's programs.

A graduate of Sam Houston State with a degree in radio, television and film, Ackerman also has served as the backup studio host and pregame reporter for the Houston Rockets Radio Network. He has served a variety of roles in the broadcasting of both the Houston Comets and Houston Thunderbears, including play-by-play, color analysis and studio hosting.

"I think Craig is a talented up-and-comer who brings a superior grasp of play-by-play broadcasting," commented Gladchuk. "We are eager to welcome Craig to our Cougar family and look forward to him putting his 'voice' to the Cougar broadcasts."
