PORTLAND, Ore. --- The University of Portland and Salem Communications have announced a partnership to broadcast all menís basketball games and selected soccer games live on True Talk 800 AM (KPDQ) during the 2010-11 season, it was announced on Thursday.

I tried AM 800 on the car radio, and at least it came in during the day. I'll need to check the signal at night.

We were thrilled to pick up the Pilots this season. UP is a nice fit philosophically for Salem Communications. And Jason Brough is a pro!
