People in the Boston area can tune in to 90.9 WBUR, which will air the program Saturday at 7 a.m. and again at 7 p.m. In Western Mass., WFCR 88.5 FM will air the program Saturday at 7 a.m. (Find other affiliates.)

People can also listen online at WBUR's website Saturday at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. (click the red “listen live” button at the top of the page). The Stern piece will air midway through the show—sometime between 7:20 and 7:40.

Doug Tribou—producer of “Only A Game”—attended Amherst’s dual meet against MIT on Jan. 29, when Stern swam a 4:51.66 in the 500-yard freestyle to best her own Pratt Pool record by more than three seconds. Stern would also anchor both relay teams that day and get an “A” cut in the 200-yard freestyle, which she won by nearly 10 seconds with a time of 1:48.98.

Tribou's story has been posted on the “Only A Game” website. A free podcast will also be offered through iTunes and other sources.
