UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA football will continue to air on CUMULUS News KGO-A/SAN FRANCISCO, and the new five-year deal through IMG COLLEGE will add men's basketball and a weekly "INSIDE THE LOCKER ROOM" show (formerly "THE CAL COACHES CORNER"), hosted by TODD MCKIM. The GOLDEN BEARS have aired football on KGO since 1974; basketball left the station in 1992 and is now returning.
“We are thrilled to be able to renew our agreement with KGO Radio for football and to add men’s basketball and our weekly coaches’ show beginning this fall,” CAL Dir./Athletics SANDY BARBOUR said. “CAL football fans have been able to enjoy the strong KGO signal for nearly 40 years, and now our men’s basketball followers will experience the same benefit. With a partnership lasting four decades, many of our fans and alumni know KGO as the only station for CAL football, and I’m excited to see that we are extending our association together even longer.”
“CAL football has long been a part of KGO 810 in the BAY AREA and NORTHERN CALIFORNIA,” said CUMULUS VP/Market Manager STEVE SKLENAR. “We are pleased to extend our partnership with them for both football and men’s basketball and look forward to a long relationship.”
