The Gator IMG Sports Network is the property of the University Athletic Association and was created to provide the University of Florida’s football and basketball programs with state-wide exposure in addition to providing revenue to the UAA’s yearly operating budget.
The broadcast rights of the Gator IMG Sports Network have been granted to Sun Sports and IMG College. The Network has the rights to Florida football and basketball game broadcasts, coaches’ call-in shows, coaches’ highlight shows and related programming.
More stations in Florida are associated with the Gator Football and Basketball Networks than with any other college or professional team. All contracts with stations and subsequent relations are the responsibility of the Gator Network department, which is part of the external affairs division of the UAA.
The Gator Sports Network currently consists of almost 40 stations, which carry a complete University of Florida football schedule. Nearly all of those stations provide game coverage of Gator men’s basketball. In addition, the UAA produces and coordinates radio coverage for women’s basketball, volleyball, softball, soccer and baseball.
