Every Wright State men’s basketball contest from Friday’s season opener through the postseason will be live over the air on 101.5 HANK FM in the Dayton metro area, as well available to stream live nationwide through a variety of free streaming apps. The iHeartRadio app, the TuneIn Radio app and the Audacy app are all FREE and each carry 101.5 HANK FM. Just search “101.5 HANK FM” on any of the three apps for Raider Basketball.

In addition to all games airing live on 101.5 HANK FM, the majority of Wright State games will also be simulcast live on WING 1410 AM, Dayton’s ESPN Radio station.

“We are excited about our new partnership with 101.5 HANK FM and WING 1410 ESPN Radio to provide Wright State Men’s Basketball games throughout the 2023-24 season.
