NRG MEDIA Sports KOZN-A (1620 THE ZONE)/OMAHA will serve as flagship for CREIGHTON UNIVERSITY men's basketball under a new three year deal. The BLUEJAYS are moving to the newly-reconstituted BIG EAST CONFERENCE this season.
“It’s just tremendous to earn the rights as the exclusive partner for CREIGHTON Men’s Basketball. It’s an honor for THE ZONE to serve our listeners, advertisers and CREIGHTON with this winning program. Adding CREIGHTON Men’s Basketball to our programming lineup is a natural fit to the station’s current content and will truly enhance our entire listener experience,” said GM and Market Manager ANDY RUBACK.
“We chose 1620 THE ZONE for many reasons, but mainly because it has long been considered OMAHA’s premier sports talk radio station. Its lineup, its commitment to local sports coverage, and its rank in the market made it the perfect partner for broadcasting our programs,” added CREIGHTON Athletic Director BRUCE RASMUSSEN.
“The CREIGHTON UNIVERSITY men's basketball program is one to watch this season as they are sure to be a force to be reckoned with in the BIG EAST CONFERENCE” said OM/PD NEIL NELKIN.
