TAMPA - The University of South Florida Athletics Department and ISP Sports are proud to unveil the USF football radio network for the 2010 season.

Once again, the Bulls can be heard on flagship station 970 WFLA AM throughout the Tampa Bay area. USF will be carried live on 12 other Florida based outlets and nationally through Sirius Satellite Radio, and will be broadcast on a pair of FM stations for the first time ever.

Fans will hear the familiar voices of play-by-play man Jim Louk and color commentator Mark Robinson, who have been in the USF radio booth since the football program’s first season in 1997. 

On the sidelines for his 10th season will be 1010 AM's Mike Pepper. Pepper is a former USF soccer player and USF alumnus that can be heard every morning on 1010 CBS Sports Radio with fellow USF grad, Jim Lighthall.

Lighthall will be back for his 14th season of USF football as the pre-and-post-game host.  In addition to his football duties, Lighthall has been member of the USF basketball broadcast team for 14 years and will return as the play-by-play man in 2010-11.

For the third conseutive season, Lighthall will host the two-hour pre-game show.  The pre-game show will be the centerpiece of the Bulls Zone interactive and tailgating area outside Raymond James Stadium. 

The post-game show will run for approximately 30 minutes again this season and will include the exclusive interview with Coach Holtz, players and call-ins.

Justin Pawlowski will be the co-host on pre and postgame shows alongside Lighthall. He has been with 620 WDAE for seven years. After playing collegiate football for the University of Connecticut, Pawlowski returned to Tampa and started "The Blitz" on the student run radio station at USF.  In addition to "The Blitz", he is the executive for "The Ron and Ian Show” on 620.

The final and perhaps most integral returning piece of the broadcast team is engineer Ed Pendino, who guarantees that the broadcast get on the airwaves and comes off without a hitch each and every week.

The games are broadcast by the USF/ISP Sports Network.
