Are you FiRED Up? BRSN’s FM Radio Show Undergoes Name Change
ITHACA, NY- The show previously known as BRSN’s Around The Gorge has undergone a name change to become BRSN’s FiRED Up. BRSN launched the show on November 1st in partnership with WVBR 93.5 FM to provide Ithaca’s only FM sports radio talk show dedicated entirely to Cornell sports. The Cornell Daily Sun requested that BRSN change the name of the show because of a Sun column also called Around the Gorge which launched in April of 2014.
A group of Cornell students and Big Red athletes were surveyed for new name ideas for the show and the FiRED Up name was eventually chosen from a group of about 75 suggestions. Cornell Women’s Lacrosse player Emily Tripodi submitted the suggestion, which plays off of the word “fired” by capitalizing the RED to represent the Big Red.
Make sure to tune into BRSN’s FiRED Up every Saturday from 9:00 – 10:00 PM EST on 93.5 FM on radio dials in Ithaca or online through wvbr.com!
