NPR Program to Feature UTD Chess
Show Will Run Nationally on Hundreds of Stations

The University of Texas at Dallas’ national champion chess team will compete December 26-29 in the Pan American Intercollegiate Team Championship in Providence, R.I., which will be featured on National Public Radio’s “Only A Game” program on Saturday, December 22.

The show will air nationally on hundreds of stations. It can be heard in the Dallas area on KERA – 90.1 FM – at 2 p.m.

KERA’s Glenn Mitchell did the segment on the UTD chess program for “Only A Game.”

The U.S. Chess Federation named UTD “Chess College of the Year” in 2001. UTD tied for first place with the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, in last year’s Pan Am tournament, which was held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

UTD also won the “Final Four” of chess in 2001.
