Boyd Buchanan Football Games on 106.9 FM

Hippie Radio is Home For Bucs Broadcast

Sunday, August 10, 2014

Boyd-Buchanan football, a staple of Chattanooga radio for the last nine years, is making the big step to FM for its 10th season on the air.

Hippie Radio, 106.9 FM and streamed live on the Web at www.hippieradio1069.

com, will broadcast the Bucs games for 2014. The long-standing broadcast crew of Chris Goforth, Jeff Keasler, Todd Agne and Chris Barnett return for the coming season, which begins August 22 with a crowd-pleasing home game against the Red Bank Lions.

“We are excited to have Boyd-Buchanan football on Hippie Radio 106.9,” said Jim Brewer II, President of Brewer Media Group. “We look forward to a great season and to working together to create a tremendous quality broadcast.”

Grant Reynolds is beginning his ninth season as head coach of the Bucs, and has enjoyed the radio exposure his program has gotten from the beginning.

“It's a great asset to be on the radio, for our school as well as our football program,” said Reynolds. “Now, going to the FM side of the dial, we'll be reaching a larger audience and that can only mean good things.”

The Bucs will be featuring a mixture of new opponents and old rivals in the coming season. Following the opener with Red Bank, they will be taking on exciting local and area program that include Notre Dame, South Pittsburg, Battle Ground Academy and Franklin Road Academy.

“About every week, somebody mentions to me they have a relative, a friend or themselves catching the game on the radio," said Reynolds.

The Bucs return 15 starters for 2014, but Reynolds will be investing the early days of practice sorting out a three-man quarterback battle.

“We will settle on one quarterback, but the other two kids will be playing somewhere,” Reynolds stated.
