We know that when it comes to sports in East Tennessee, there’s a rabid fanbase who can’t get enough coverage of all things Vols. We also know that there are so many other interests when it comes to sports coverage besides SEC football…there’s high school, pro, small college, it’s all happening! With that, we’d like to introduce ourselves; we are Rocky Top Sports!
Rocky Top Sports (FM 100.9/AM 850) is a locally owned radio station that will cover UT Sports from the perspective of former players, credible media members, and everyday people, and will do it in a way that celebrates the programs we love so much around here. We’ll keep it real too, because we all know that when you love something, it inevitably breaks your heart from time to time! In short, our goal will be to entertain and interact…not rile you up! From the anchor of our broadcast day each morning, The Swain Event with Jayson Swain, throughout the entire day, Rocky Top Sports will provide you with information and entertainment that isn’t just limited to UT Sports. There will be high school sports coverage, along with original shows dedicated to other sports interests that are special to so many of us in East Tennessee.
We’ll have additional coverage and commentary available to you through our digital content partner Rocky Top Insider (rockytopinsider.com), now entering its fourth year as a go-to destination for UT Sports coverage. Not in your car or near a radio to hear the station? No worries, because Rocky Top Sports will be available to you on an unprecedented number of platforms as well. Online at wkvl.com, on rockytopinsider.com and the Rocky Top Insider app, and coming soon on iHeart Radio…with other distribution partners on the way!
As the famous quote in the movie Field of Dreams goes, ‘if you build it, they will come”.
We’re in the beginning stages of what we believe will ultimately be the best available source for East Tennessee sports coverage…college, high school, pro, you name it! We’re building this service with great pride, and a lot of great ideas that are still “under construction”, but will be available to you in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
Thank you for checking us out…and stick around…the game is definitely changing!
