The staff and management of WQME 98.7 recently announced the addition of local high school basketball games and Anderson University basketball games to its programming offering. The station will cover 23 selected high school games this year and 16 selected Anderson University basketball games.

“We’re delighted that this arrangement will enable listeners across central Indiana and over the Internet to keep up with some of their favorite teams,” said Don Boggs, general manager of WQME. “This is another avenue by which this station can reach out to the community and a wider audience.”
