The FOX SPORTS RADIO affiliation and PREMIERE's JIM ROME are moving up the dial in OMAHA to NRG MEDIA Sports KOZN-A (1620 THE ZONE) from JOURNAL Sports KXSP-A (BIG SPORTS 590). The switch of the ZONE from ESPN RADIO takes place FEBRUARY 1st.
The move to FOX at THE ZONE means that middayers "SCHICK AND NICK" (MATT SCHICK and NICK BAHE) will move to an earlier 8-11a (CT) slot, while afternooners KEVIN KUGLER and MIKE'L SEVERE's "UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT" remains in afternoons 2-6p.
Kugler Honored Again
KUGLER, in the meantime, has been named once again as the NATIONAL SPORTSCASTERS AND SPORTSWRITERS ASSOCIATION's NEBRASKA Broadcaster of the Year, his 7th title, and has also been named to the NSSA's Hall of Fame. "I am just thrilled to be recognized by the association and truly appreciate the honor," said KUGLER. "Every day I wake up and get to do what I love and that's talk about sports to passionate Nebraska sports fans just like me. It's the best job in the business and I am the luckiest man alive to be afforded this opportunity."
ZONE PD NEIL NELKIN added, "I've been in broadcasting for nearly 40 years and people like KUGLER just don't come around every day. He's a true talent and he has the attitude, passion and skills it takes to be successful and it just comes naturally to him. His abilities on the air are unparalleled and it shows in our station's continual ratings success and KEVIN's ongoing recognition from the NSSA."
