WSUI/KSUI's Radio Forum examines fund raising for UI women's athletics

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The challenge of courting funds for women's athletics at the University of Iowa is explored on the UI Radio Forum's next "Athletics at Iowa" program on WSUI and KSUI.

The focus will be on how the UI women's athletics department is promoting itself and raising funds and why the game plan is different from men's athletics.

Featured guests on the program will be Dr. Christine Grant, director of women's athletics; Mark Jennings, senior director of development for intercollegiate athletics at the UI Foundation; and Jana Egeland, associate director of development for women's athletics.

The UI Radio Forum's "Athletics at Iowa" program, hosted by Bonnie Slatton, airs Saturday, Jan. 23 at 9 p.m. and Sunday Jan. 24 at 3:30 p.m. on WSUI-AM (910), and Sunday, Jan. 24 at 5:30 on KSUI-FM (91.7).

For more information, call (319) 335-5750.
