Linfield offers a wide array of videocast and/or audio play-by-play coverage of most Wildcats football, volleyball, soccer, basketball, softball and baseball events.

All regular-season home football games are available as videocasts on a pay-per-view basis. The cost of each football videocast is $12 per event, or a discounted rate of $50 for the full five-game home schedule. Revenue generated from broadcast sales is used to cover expenses such as NCAA rights fees, travel, equipment, talent and streaming services. Any potential NCAA playoff games are offered free of charge. Audio webcasts of football are presented free of charge.

From a radio standpoint, Linfield football fans can hear Wildcats games over two over-the-air stations. True Talk 800 KPDQ-AM serves as Linfield’s football flagship station for audio broadcasts in the Portland-Vancouver market. Linfield's on-campus radio station, KSLC 90.3 FM, provides simulcast audio coverage for residents of McMinnville.

The football pregame show starts 30 minutes before the scheduled kickoff.  Broadcasts include a complete postgame wrapup, with analysis, final statistics and live interviews with players and coaches.

Kevin Nelson serves as football play-by-play announcer. Nelson, a 2016 Linfield graduate, assists in the Sports Information office and is the athletic department's sponsorship sales representative.

Retired Linfield Dean of Students and emeritus faculty member Dave Hansen celebrates his 40thseason of involvement with Linfield football broadcasts, either as a play-by-play voice and color analyst.

Videocast coverage extends to coverage of most home games of Linfield volleyball, soccer, basketball, softball and baseball. Student broadcasters provide coverage as play-by-play voices, in association with KSLC and the college's Mass Communication department.
