KRVN PICKS UP UNK ATHLETICS BROADCASTS

The University of Nebraska Kearney has agreed to partner with the Rural Radio network to broadcast Loper sporting events for the next five years. Through stations 93.1 FM (The River) and 880 AM (106.9FM (KRVN), UNK Athletics will maintain a live footprint throughout the state. Football, Men's and Women's Basketball and a select number of other sports and postseason events will be covered as well, including the Lopers’ national-caliber volleyball program. Longtime KRVN Sports Director Jayson Jorgensen, will be the new "Voice Of The Lopers." The first broadcast is set for August 31st when the Lopers host Missouri Western State to kickoff the football season.  

“We are looking forward to this partnership.  A lot of our employees are alumni and boosters of UNK  and we understand how important it is provide great broadcasts of Lopers athletics,” said Tim Marshall,  KRVN Station Manager.   “UNK games will primarily be on The River with a select number carried on KRVN AM. Both stations have  free audio live live-streaming options for Loper fans outside the listening area.  “We are excited about this new partnership. This goes beyond play-by- play of UNK Athletics. Through our  network of stations, we willl be able to highlight and promote the entire UNK campus,” said Craig Larson, General Manager of the Nebraska Rural Radio Association.
