Illinois athletic director Mike Thomas wanted to create a bigger Fighting Illini presence in Chicago. First, it was a football game at Soldier Field. Now, he will take to the airwaves.

Illini basketball and football games will be broadcast on WSCR-AM 670, starting in 2013 for basketball and 2014 for football, as first reported by the Chicago Tribune. Illini football games will remain on WIND-AM 560 until the beginning of the 2014 season.

Illini sporting events were previously broadcast on The Score back in 2004-05.

The announcement is expected Wednesday morning.
