I have been asked multiple times this season by various Penn State fans where they can find each football game on the radio. Below is information that should help you catch every Penn State game, no matter where you live.
The Penn State Sports Network will air all Penn State games, with play-by-play called by Steve Jones and commentary provided by Jack Ham. Football broadcasts begin 90 minutes before kickoff with a pre-game show and are wrapped up with a post-game show. Below are some of the bigger radio stations that will carry Penn State games this season. For a full list of radio affiliates click here.

Penn State broadcasts each game live right from the home page for the athletic department, so if you have the ability to do so then log on to GoPSUSports.com and find the live audio link from the special Gameday Central page. Click on “Listen Live” under the most recent game information, which will also have the most up to date television information for each game.
In Beaver Stadium
The problem with listening to a game on the radio on a headset in Beaver Stadium is the seven second (sometimes longer) radio delay (aside from cheap ear pieces that won’t block out the crowd noise of 100,000+ fans). To listen to the live radio feed without a delay you will need a listening device from LiveSportsRadio. It may look a little funny but the ability to listen to Steve Jones call the next deep pass from Rob Bolden live as it is happening must be enticing enough for some to pay the $20 for the special device. Penn State fans can also purchase two for $30.
The downside is these devices are only good for one season. A purchase for this season will also come with the ability to listen to men’s home basketbal games during the 2010-2011 season as well. A new device will have to be purchased for the 2011 football season.
