The CONTINENTAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION's EAST KENTUCKY MINERS will be heard on EAST KENTUCKY BROADCASTING CORP. Classic Rock WPKE-F/COAL RUN-PIKEVILLE, KY this season, with the station carrying coverage of all 16 home games. The other stations in the local EKB cluster will also air MINERS programming, and WPKE-F will carry a weekly coach's show with KEVIN KEATHLEY.
EKB released a statement reading, "We at EAST KENTUCKY BROADCASTING, the area's sports broadcasting leader, headquartered in Pikeville, are proud to announce our association as the exclusive radio home for the EAST KENTUCKY MINERS. Last year, we all saw the excitement build around KENTUCKY's only professional basketball franchise and are pleased to be able to add the region's leading broadcasting company to the MINERS team. We at EKB encourage everyone to attend the games and become loyal supporters of our professional team, but when you can't make it to the games, WPKE-FM 103.1 will provide comprehensive coverage from pregame through postgame, including the weekly Coach KEVI KEATHLEY Show. Veteran sports broadcasters JEFF MEEK and EKB Sports Director ANDREW JOYCE will bring the broadcast experience deserving of professional basketball to the MINERS fans. We hope to see you at every game and encourage fans to bring their radios along with them. But when you can't be there, tune in to 103.1 FM WPKE - your exclusive radio home for the EAST KENTUCKY MINERS and also providing complete coverage live online at www.wpke.com."
