There's a new affiliate in the PHOENIX market for UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA football and men’s basketball, as the games move to CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KGME-A (FOX SPORTS 910) under a new deal with rightsholder IMG COLLEGE's ARIZONA IMG SPORTS NETWORK. The station will also carry coaches' shows.
“Creating a new partnership with FOX SPORTS 910, a 24/7 sports station, provides the ARIZONA IMG SPORTS NETWORK an even more valuable platform for our partners and fans alike in the PHOENIX market,” said ARIZONA IMG SPORTS NETWORK GM JOE MOELLER. “ARIZONA fans and future WILDCATS alike will not only be able to enjoy our live network broadcasts, they will also be able to hear from our athletic director, coaches and student-athletes nearly every day of the year.”
