Johnnie Radio Network

The Only Networked Radio Broadcast in All of Division III Athletics 

If you are unable to experience Saint Johnís basketball, football or hockey in person, you can follow the Johnnies on the Johnnie radio network and flagship station, The Bear (WBHR) 660 AM.

For the past nine years, Saint Johnís University and WBHR (The Bear - Tri-County Broadcasting of Sauk Rapids), Minn. claim the only networked football radio broadcasts in all of NCAA Division III athletics. With WDGY 740 AM out of Hudson, Wis., and KOWZ 1170 AM out of Waseca, Johnnie football games can be heard border to border in Minnesota and into parts of western Wisconsin, northern Iowa, and eastern parts of North and South Dakota.

As the weather turns colder, tune into The Bear for all SJU basketball games and a majority of Johnnie hockey games throughout the winter.

SJU and Tri-County Broadcasting revised their radio broadcast agreement in the summer of 2011 and are now under contract through the 2018-19 academic year.
