The Northwestern State Athletic Department and Elite Radio Group have extended their partnership

The Northwestern State Athletic Department and Elite Radio Group have extended their partnership, keeping Elite as the home for NSU sports for the 2021-22 athletic year.

Demon football will continue to air on 94.9 FM The River, the flagship of the Demon Sports Network, as will men’s basketball and baseball. Women’s basketball and softball games can be heard on 95.9 FM Kix Country. All games broadcast on the network also can be heard on and through the Northwestern State mobile app, which can be downloaded free from the Apple Store or through Google Play.

The Demon Sports Network has partnered with Elite Radio Group since the 2019-20 athletic year.

“The partnership over the past two years with Elite Broadcasting and Bill Vance have been very positive in terms of working together to enable our fans who cannot attend games in-person to have access to a quality broadcast. We look forward to more of the same in the coming year,” said NSU Director of Athletics Greg Burke.

Added Vance, the market manager for Elite Radio Group and the Natchitoches Parish Journal: “It’s with great pleasure we extend our agreement with NSU sports. With 95.9 Kix Classic Country, 94.9 The River and the Natchitoches Parish Journal, we can continue to deliver NSU sports to every listener no matter where they are. Elite Radio Group and NSU sports have just one goal together – to deliver sports programming to one location – yours.”

Demon fans will hear a new voice alongside longtime play-by-play announcer Patrick Netherton this season as Tyler Moody joins the broadcast team. Moody previously was the assistant athletic director for media relations at LSU-Shreveport, where he expanded the broadcast offerings of Pilot sports.

Moody also has experience calling football games alongside Netherton on the Varsity Sports Network in northwest Louisiana and has worked in sports talk radio in the Shreveport and Eugene, Oregon, markets. Moody also broadcasts on UFC Fight Pass, a subscription service dedicated to mixed martial arts.

Moody will make his Demon Sports Network debut Saturday when Northwestern State faces North Texas. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. in Denton, Texas, with the pregame show beginning at 6 p.m.
