Red Blue Hoops

Join us for Red Blue Hoops at 6pm CST Thursdays, on 88.3 WNIN-FM and wnin.org! 

 Nowhere in the country is the fan base for two top college basketball programs so divided by a river! The Ohio River separates the fanatical Indiana Hoosier fans to the north and passionate University of Kentucky fans to the south. 

WNIN embraces our unique basketball geography with a weekly radio program called Red Blue Hoops. Hosts Chad Payton (IU) and Evan Beck (UK) will compare, debate, and critique the IU and UK basketball programs and occasionally other area basketball teams like USI and UE.

Each week Chad and Evan will review the latest game results, discuss the next week’s games, and rib each other about unexpected losses.  And expect very passionate debate (also known as good natured “trash talking”) when the subject turns to which program has the most tradition or which has had the better players over the years.

Red Blue Hoops is broadcast live at 6pm Central Time each Thursday on WNIN-FM. Be a part of the action by calling in (812.426.7400) or tweeting questions @redbluehoops for the hosts. Listen on your radio on 88.3 FM or online

Red Blue Hoops is presented by German American Bank.
