NRG MEDIA Sports KOZN-A (1620AM THE ZONE)/OMAHA weekday afternoon "UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT" host KEVIN KUGLER is expanding his national work with the addition of a post with the BIG TEN NETWORK (BTN), so he is stepping back from his hosting duties at THE ZONE and into the new role of National Sports Correspondent. KUGLER, who will continue his play-by-play duties for NFL football and NCAA basketball with DIAL GLOBAL, will serve as analyst, interviewer and guest anchor for the local show.
OM NEIL NELKIN said, "KEVIN now gets a chance to cut his teeth as a play-by-play host for the Big 10 and still stay on THE ZONE. It has been a joy and a privilege to watch KEVIN as he evolved into a national sports correspondent."
KUGLER added, "This opportunity affords me the chance to remain on THE ZONE and stay in OMAHA. Although this is a new chapter for my career, I am still staying on my 'home' at 1620 THE ZONE but I will have even more insight to offer as a result of the various exclusive interviews and event coverage I will be able to do on BTN."
