CHARLOTTESVILLE – Radio station Star 94.3 FM (WTON) in Staunton, Va., has joined the University of Virginia Sports Network and will air Cavalier programming beginning with the 2005 football season.
“We were looking for a quality radio partner in the Shenandoah Valley with terrific signal strength to enable us to reach University of Virginia fans in Staunton, Harrisonburg, Waynesboro and Lexington,” said Mac McDonald, director of broadcasting for Cavalier Sports Marketing and “Voice of the Virginia Cavaliers.” “Star 94.3 is a terrific station with great people and a tremendous following.
