Teurlings Catholic Rebel Football Comes To News Talk 96.5 KPEL
Teurlings Catholic Rebel football will be heard on a new radio dial in 2018.
News Talk 96.5 KPEL FM is the new home for Teurlings football after reaching a 3 year agreement with Townsquare Media.
"We are excited to enter into a partnership with Townsquare Media promoting Teurlings Catholic athletics and look forward to a productive working relationship over the next three years," says TCH principal Mike Boyer.
The broadcast team of Cavan Bordelon (play by play) and Scott Brazda (color analyst) will call every TCH football regular season and postseason game.
"This is a great opportunity to take Teurlings Catholic High School sports to the next level," notes Bordelon. "With Rebel football now being broadcast on News Talk 96.5 KPEL, more listeners will have the opportunity to hear not only the excitement Teurlings brings to Friday nights, but also the tremendous young men and women being formed at TCH."
Each broadcast will feature an extensive pregame show, beginning at 6pm, featuring a one on one interview with head coach Dane Charpentier, an inside look into activities within the Rebels athletic department, and much more with Bordelon and Brazda.
"Townsquare Media has always been at the forefront of sports broadcasting in Acadiana for my entire life," explains Brazda. "It's with immense pride and excitement that Cavan and I will be able to bring the Teurlings Catholic story to KPEL, ESPN 1420, and from there, to their many listeners.
"No matter the sport, our broadcasts of Teurlings athletics have always been about more than the games. Teurlings is all about 'family' -- the students, athletes, faculty and the generations of wonderful people who have walked the halls of TCH. You get the same feeling at Townsquare Media: Family."
Teurlings kicks off their regular season on Friday, August 31st, when they host the Breaux Bridge Tigers.
"It's more than just football," adds Bordelon. "It's education. It's formation. It's Catholic. Townsquare Media and News Talk 96.5 KPEL is the appropriate platform to demonstrate that something special is happening on Teurlings Drive."
In addition to football, the duo of Bordelon and Brazda will occasionally broadcast other TCH sports under the umbrella of Townsquare Media.
