Broncos launch new Web site

Oct. 21, 1999

KALAMAZOO -- Western Michigan University's Division of Intercollegiate Athletics has a new home on the World Wide Web with the unveiling of its new and improved site at www.wmubroncos.com.

The WMU athletics Web site, originally launched in January 1996, set a University record with 16,900 hits in September. The site features news and information on all 20 varsity sports at Western Michigan and serves as the official online home of Bronco Insider, WMU's quarterly athletic newspaper. Another popular feature is the live audio section, which allows fans to listen to Bronco athletic events carried over the Bronco Radio Network.

"There is more information about the Broncos on our web site than anywhere else, and the information is current," said WMU Director of Marketing Chris Hanna, who worked with The Iserv Company, Inc., to develop the site.

Additional features, to be added in the near future, will include online ticket ordering and an opportunity to receive news releases by email. Bronco fans are encouraged to log on frequently and bookmark the site.
