Utah State University and KTVX (Channel 4) officials announced a long-term agreement Thursday to televise Aggie football and basketball games.

Broadcasts originating from Logan during the 1988-89 season will include the USU-Utah football game Nov. 12 and the Aggies' December basketball games with Weber State, Utah and BYU. Plans call for KTVX to increase its football coverage in 1989-90 and continue to televise the rivalry basketball games.KTVX also announced that it has secured an agreement to pair sports director Steve Brown as the play-by-play announcer with former USU quarterback-kicker Jim Turner as the color analyst. Turner is a former NBC-TV broadcaster and currently the co-host of a daily sports talk show in Denver.

"This is a great step for us," said USU athletic director Rod Tueller.

"The fierce competition USU athletics always generate will make for some great television," said
