INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Indianapolis' first FM sports station, 107.5 The Fan, has launched.

"The launch of FM 107.5 The Fan demonstrates Emmis' deep commitment to making "The Fan" Indy's dominant sports brand," Charlie Morgan, SVP/Market Manager of Emmis-Indianapolis said.  "Given that Emmis is credited with creating the first sports-talk station in the United States, it only seems fitting that we would deliver the City's first FM Sports Station to the Indy's sports-loving fans."

The Fan 1070 AM/107.5 FM is the flagship station of the Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Pacers, Butler Basketball, Indiana University Football, the Indy Car Series and the Indiana Fever. Play-by-play on 1070 The Fan will also be carried live on 107.5FM The Fan unless two games conflict, and then the games will be split between 1070 and 107.5FM.

The line-up for 107.5 FM is complementary but not entirely duplicative of the line-up on 1070 The Fan.
