The state Department of Health is reporting at least 12 confirmed cases of chikungunya in Tennessee. Right now, all of those infected have traveled to the Caribbean and contracted it there. Chikungunya is a mosquito-borne illness that causes fever, nausea, vomiting, muscle pain, rashes and joint point. It is not deadly but very debilitating.
Blue Raider Sports Properties, a division of Learfield Sports, is happy to announce that a three-year extension has been added to the broadcast agreement with NewsRadio WGNS Radio. The affiliation between Blue Raider Athletics and WGNS dates back to 1947 and, for the biggest part of those 68 years, has been a broadcast outlet for Middle Tennessee. The new agreement will mean that Blue Raider Network programming will be heard on NewsRadio WGNS through at least 2018.
