Luther Visit highlights Week in DU Sports

This was actually a pretty busy week in Duquesne news. Let’s have a look back at the things that were happening for the Dukes and what they mean in the grand scheme of things.

Dukes renew contract with Clear Channel

That news broke just the other day. This will keep the Dukes on 104.7 and maintain the pre- and post-game shows that have been the norm the last several years as well as the coaches shows. Obviously, this is a good thing. The Dukes will continue to be heard on a good and clear signal, and the broadcast will also be available on apps like IHeartRadio (the Clear Channel official app) if you happen to be on the road. Win-win.

Of course the PG notes that they may not be a package deal.
