THE VOL NETWORK STORY
in anticipation of WLIL going on-the-air, Arthur Wilkerson contacted the folks
at UT about the possibility of his station also broadcasting
In fact, they thought other stations across the state might also be interested in broadcasting UT sports. There weren’t many takers, but it is believed there were at least six stations who said, “I do,” including WLIL. And so the ‘Vol Network’ was born under the direction of Ed Huster, Sr.
Today, well over one hundred stations across the state broadcast UT sports. Of the original six, several no longer exist, and others have gone in other directions, leaving WLIL with the distinction of being the oldest Vol Network station in the state.
