UNIVERSITY OF OREGON sports will continue airing on CUMULUS MEDIA’s stations in the EUGENE market under a new multi-year agreement with rights holder IMG COLLEGE. News-Talk KUGN-A/EUGENE will continue to serve as flagship, with Sports KUJZ (95.3 THE SCORE) and Rock KZEL also broadcasting DUCKS games.
CUMULUS EUGENE OM AL SCOTT said, “UNIVERSITY OF OREGON Sports broadcasts are a tradition here at CUMULUS EUGENE. Our entire team is incredibly proud of our partnership with the UNIVERSITY OF OREGON DUCKS. We all look forward to broadcasting the U of O sports features and games. The OREGON DUCK games are as exciting for all of us here in the building as they are for our listeners.”
OREGON Senior Associate Athletic Director CRAIG PINTENS said, “THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON Athletic Department is thrilled to continue the broadcast partnership with CUMULUS and KUGN. The storied history between OREGON Athletics and KUGN goes back many years and the relationship has been strong since KUGN regained the rights in 1995. When you think of OREGON Athletics being broadcast on the radio in this community, DUCK fans think of KUGN and JERRY ALLEN.”
ALLEN, the play-by-play voice of the DUCKS, said, “The history of OREGON Athletics and KUGN dates back to 1958, which is outstanding. I was fortunate to be part of the new team back in 1995 when KUGN regained the rights. I have been broadcasting OREGON sports for 29 years and 20 of those have been on KUGN. It’s been a great run and most of my greatest moments as the Voice of the DUCKS have happened on KUGN.”
