NRG MEDIA Sports KOZN-A (1620 THE ZONE)/OMAHA will remain the flagship for CREIGHTON UNIVERSITY men's basketball under a three-year contract extension which aso covers men's soccer, volleyball, women's basketball, and baseball and a weekly show in-season. ZONE afternoon "UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT" co-host JOHN BISHOP and midday 11a-2p host and former BLUEJAY player NICK BAHE will continue to call the games; home games will simulcast on Classic Rock KOOO (101.9 THE KEG).
"Working with NRG MEDIA and 1620 THE ZONE has been tremendous for our athletic department, including the men's basketball program," said CREIGHTON head coach GREG MCDERMOTT. "It's exciting to know that partnership will continue. JOHN BISHOP and NICK BAHE, as well as many others that contribute to their pre-game and post-game shows, do a great job helping our fans follow our team both home and away."
"Very few radio stations have the opportunity to partner with a world-class athletics program like CREIGHTON Athletics," said NRG GM ANDY RUBACK. "To have two stations associated with the BLUEJAYS men's basketball team is a tremendous honor. We hope the addition of home games on THE KEG gives even more people the chance to cheer for such an exciting team."
