Colt Broadcasting, owned by Rob Rudnick (station 
manager/owner at WNTN), was doing Northeastern broadcasts 
last I checked. Previously, it was Beacon Sports. I've 
always found it amazing that Northeastern's broadcasts 
somehow bring in enough revenue to pay overhead (and 
presumably make a small profit). Consider that most of 
NU's graduates up until a few years back were really 
commuter students who got business degrees but aren't 
necessarily running any companies or making many spending 
decisions in the marketplace.
