Sports USA Radio Network

The Sports USA Radio Network is the largest independent nationwide sports broadcasting radio network, specializing in live broadcasts of American football, specifically of the NCAA football Division I-A and National Football League. In 2009, more than 275 radio stations across the United States carried NFL and NCAA football games from Sports USA.

Programs

College Football on Sports USA

Sports USA broadcasts at least one major college football game every Saturday during the college football season. Three college bowl games are also broadcast by Sports USA: the Las Vegas Bowl, the Independence Bowl, and the Sun Bowl. The Capital One Bowl was broadcast by Sports USA from 2003-2010, but ESPN Radio gained the rights to the bowl for 2011 and on.

The NFL on Sports USA

Sports USA began broadcasting NFL games in 2002 with a limited schedule. In 2003, the schedule was expanded to two games each Sunday for a total of 34 games.

Other sports

Beginning in 2012, Sports USA Radio Network carried the Little League World Series.

Announcers

Sports USA has a large list of announcers for its football coverage. Among its more notable staff are former UCLA Bruins football coach Terry Donahue, former USC Trojans football and Los Angeles Rams head coach John Robinson, former Colorado head coach Gary Barnett, former ABC announcer and quarterback Dan Fouts (Fouts also splits time with the NFL on CBS), Philadelphia Phillies broadcaster Tom McCarthy, Golden State Warriors announcer Bob Fitzgerald, former NFL offensive lineman Ross Tucker, former USFL defensive back Troy West, and Eli Gold (from the Alabama Crimson Tide, better known nationwide for his work on NASCAR). The network's founder, former USC football broadcaster Larry Kahn, also serves as one of its play-by-play announcers.

As part of a deal between Westwood One and Sports USA, Westwood One occasionally used Sports USA announcers for some of its broadcasts during the 2009 and 2010 seasons. For instance, the 2010 Pro Bowl (whose rights are held by Westwood One) was called by Kahn and Fouts, with Westwood One loaning Boomer Esiason to the broadcast team. Sports USA also loaned its announcers to the Detroit Lions' annual Thanksgiving game. This arrangement is expected to end in 2011, with Westwood One set to merge with Dial Global and Sports USA affiliating with AdLarge Media for its advertising sales.
