Did Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity cause UConn to move its sports programming from WTIC-AM 1080 to ESPN-affiliate WUCS-FM 97.9? That’s what Republican candidate for governor and former Trumbull First Selectman Tim Herbst alleged Saturday as he called for the resignation of UConn President Susan Herbst. The two are not related.
"Susan Herbst's tenure has been marked by a relentless drive to transform UConn from an institution meant to serve and educate Connecticut's young people into an activist organization for Gov. [Dannel] Malloy's failed liberal policies," Herbst said. “The notion that UConn will not allow school sports to be broadcast on a radio station because that station also airs conservative programming is an appalling assault on free speech and open thought for a public institution.”
