Having NICK return to THE ZONE provides our listeners with an entirely live and local programming lineup airing at the height of the weekday workday.”
“Returning to 1620 THE ZONE is an exciting opportunity to talk with true OMAHA and NEBRASKA sports fans who care as passionately as I about the local sports scene. I’m honored and privileged to return to 1620 THE ZONE and can’t wait to join in the conversation taking place about the BLUEJAYS, the HUSKERS, the MAVS and the players and coaches that make these teams so relevant in our local market area,” said BAHE.
“NICK is the perfect sports personality to enhance our local programming on THE ZONE. He brings an entertaining, informative focus on the local sports scene from the perspective of a former athlete and broadcast personality. This will be the first time a local sports station has offered totally local, live programming from 7a to 6p daily and NICK rounds out a tremendous team of talent” said OM NEIL NELKIN.
