"Given the breadth and power of the CITADEL stations not only in ALBUQUERQUE, but throughout NEW MEXICO, it's a relationship that means a lot to our success."
"The ISOTOPES are a key element of our local sports programming on KNML and we are excited to renew this multi year agreement, a year ahead of schedule," said CITADEL GM MILT MCCONNELL. "ALBUQUERQUE loves the ISOTOPES and is one of the key reasons why 610 THE SPORTS ANIMAL has been in the sports broadcasting business and an ESPN affiliate for fifteen years now."
