HOME FIELD COMMUNICATIONS Sports KNTK (93.7 THE TICKET)/ LINCOLN, NE has extended the local afternoon “DROP THE MIKE WITH MIKE WELCH” by an extra hour, expanding the show from 3-6p to 2-6p (CT). The expansion, starting MONDAY (5/11), fills the hour left vacant by the passing last month of ADRIAN FIALA and the consequent end of “THE HUSKER LEGENDS SHOW.”
"We will make ADRIAN FIALA proud." WELCH said, adding, “The support I’ve received from 93.7 THE TICKET and the city of LINCOLN has been phenomenal. It makes turning up and talking Huskers every afternoon both a blast and a privilege.”
On FIALA’s death, his co-host and TICKET PD JOHN GASKINS said, "ADRIAN gave 93.7 THE TICKET instant credibility, and we are forever grateful. We miss him dearly, and I will miss the extraordinary honor of co-hosting with him and talking to former HUSKERS who gave me and our listeners so many awesome memories.”
On WELCH’s expansion, GASKINS added, “MIKE has grown his audience with his exceptional ability to captivate and entertain HUSKER fans, and I’m looking forward to the show thriving even more.” He said that a new weekly version of “THE HUSKER LEGENDS SHOW” is under consideration.
