Radio Forum continues discussion of fund raising for UI women's athletics

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- UI Radio Forum's next "Athletics at Iowa" program on WSUI and KSUI will continue a discussion of fund raising campaigns and other forms of support for women's athletics at the University of Iowa.

Featured guests include 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 discussion will focus on how women's athletics has made strides in acquiring facilities, obtaining equipment, and adding sports such as crew and soccer, but is still struggling to achieve necessary funding.

The UI Radio Forum's "Athletics at Iowa" program, hosted by Bonnie Slatton, airs Saturday evening, Jan. 30 at 9 p.m. and Sunday afternoon, Jan. 31 at 3:30 p.m. on WSUI-AM (910), and Sunday afternoon, Jan. 31 at 5:30 on KSUI-FM (91.7).
