BamaOnline.com among more popular affinity sites with over 12,000 subscribers
BamaOnline.com, a Univ. of Alabama fan destination that is one of the most popular team affinity sites on the Internet with more than 12,000 subscribers, has become part of the 247Sports.com network. Shannon Terry, 247Sports.com CEO, helped create BamaOnline.com in '96 and is a co-Owner of the site. 247Sports.com, however, needed to wait for the end of BamaOnline.com's contract with Rivals.com, sold by Terry to Yahoo in ’07, to make the switch. 247Sports.com, meanwhile, has additionally created "247 Sports Radio" on Sirius XM satellite radio, a daily program dedicated to collegiate sports with a weekly listenership of more than 500,000 people. The program features Bill King, also formerly of Rivals.com.
