A new era of Tuscaloosa sports talk began on June 30 when Tide 99.1 became Tide 102.9 and began broadcasting its coverage of Alabama sports to a much wider audience around the state. 

When the switch happened around 2:45PM, Ryan Fowler was hosting The Game. We decided to broadcast the momentous occasion live on Facebook to capture the excitement in the studio for the new signal. You can watch that video above and see how it all went down.

If you're just catching up on the news of the new Tide 102.9, here is everything you need to know.
