Fans attending University of Alabama home games will have a new source of information on game days this season with the launch of UA Info Radio.

“We have one of the best game-day experiences in the nation, and UA Info Radio will only make the experience better for our fans,” said Donald Keith, UA director of emergency. “As fans drive into Tuscaloosa, they can tune in and hear the information they need before arriving on campus.”

The station will broadcast on 92.5 FM and is available to stream online through ready.ua.edu, the UA Safety app and the UA Gameday app.

Alabama is scheduled to play New Mexico State at 3 p.m. Saturday in Bryant-Denny Stadium for its first home game of the season.

On game days, the station will broadcast traffic updates, information on parking and pregame events, music by the Million Dollar Band and facts about the Crimson Tide. The game-day program will also include safety tips for home games and advisories during severe weather or other emergencies that may occur during the game. The station will carry similar updates for other major events such as graduation.

During the week, the station will provide safety updates, information on campus events, performances from the UA School of Music, history and campus news. The station will also carry live updates during severe weather or other emergencies affecting the campus.

UA acquired a low-power FM, non-commercial radio station for public safety after the April 27, 2011, tornado.

“After the tornado, when the electricity was out for several days, the only way for many people to get information was through a battery-operated radio,” Keith said. “We decided at that time that UA needed a radio station that could be used to distribute information in the case of an emergency. UA Info Radio is just another tool we use to help keep people safe on our campus.”
