UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA football will continue to air on CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KFXN-F (FM 100.3 KFAN)/MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL under a three-year extension between the station and rights holder LEARFIELD SPORTS' GOPHER SPORTS PROPERTIES.
GOLDEN GOPHERS Dir./Athletics NORWOOD TEAGUE said, "We have enjoyed our relationship with CLEAR CHANNEL and are looking forward to another exciting three years of having GOPHER football broadcast on KFAN Sports Radio, We evaluated all of our broadcast options, but the best place for us and for our fans right now is with CLEAR CHANNEL One of the things we are most excited about is leveraging CLEAR CHANNEL's top-rated, non-sports stations to help promote GOPHER athletics to a wider audience."
CLEAR CHANNEL Market Pres. MICHAEL CRUSHAM added, "We are excited to continue our partnership with the UNIV. OF MINNESOTA's GOLDEN GOPHER football program and LEARFIELD SPORTS. The combination of FM 100.3 KFAN, and our five other radio brands allows us to mutually grow both of our programs. GOLDEN GOPHER football is headed to a higher level and so are we. We will enjoy the ride together for the next three years and hopefully many more."
