STANFORD UNIVERSITY football and men's basketball will air on CUMULUS Sports KTCT-A (KNBR 1050)/SAN FRANCISCO this coming season under a new deal with LEARFIELD SPORTS' CARDINAL SPORTS LLC. The station will air all games plus 10 "Inside STANFORD Sports" coaches' shows under a multi-year agreement.
"KNBR 1050 is proud to once again partner with STANFORD UNIVERSITY as the flagship radio station of Stanford football and basketball. STANFORD has emerged as one as one of the premiere programs in college sports, highlighted by the fact that they have produced back-to-back Heisman Trophy finalists," CUMULUS SAN FRANCISCO OM LEE HAMMER. "The addition of STANFORD sports to our other broadcast partners including the SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS, SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS and GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS (which air on sister Sports KNBR-A (KNBR 680)) reinforces KNBR as The Sports Leader in the BAY AREA."
"We are very pleased to be partnering with the BAY AREA's leading sports broadcasting group and we are looking forward to bringing STANFORD UNIVERSITY Football and Basketball contests to an even larger audience than in the past," said STANFORD Director of Athletics BOB BOWLSBY. "Coaches (DAVID) SHAW and (JOHNNY) DAWKINS join me in enthusiastically embarking on this business relationship. This is a mutually beneficial partnership and we are excited to get started."
