WQKR is the voice of Portland Panthers athletics, broadcasting football, basketball, baseball, and softball games throughout the year. Robert Gilman and Miguel Almendarez bring you the play-by-play and color during the games, with longtime sportswriter Curtis Marlin joining the broadcast crew during the football season. In addition to the games, WQKR airs the weekly coaches’ show every Wednesday afternoon at 5:00 p.m., broadcast on location at the Portland McDonald’s restaurant. And every Monday, “Portland P.M.” puts the focus on sports from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. with Don Curry and Dale Wix. We also have coverage all year of the University of Tennessee Volunteers, Vanderbilt Commodores, Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, Tennessee Titans, and Nashville Predators, as well as NASCAR and IndyCar racing.
We're so glad to have McDonald's as a sponsor of WQKR events!
