The University of Utah has signed a new four-year agreement with Jacor Broadcasting of Salt Lake for the play-by-play radio rights to Ute football and basketball.
The new agreement also marks the move of U. of U. sports from KALL (AM-910) to sister station KNRS ("K-News" AM-570). This ends 47 years of University of Utah sports play-by-play coverage on KALL.The reason for the switch from AM-910 to AM-570 is the clearer, stronger signal.
Jacor operates six radio stations in Salt Lake - including KALL and KNRS - and still hopes to finalize the purchase of a seventh station, KFAM (AM-700).
Bill Marcroft will return for his 29th year of U. of U. sports broadcasting. He'll be joined by Frank Dolce, Jeff Jonas and Brad Stone.
KALL will still continue some of its U. sports tradition by retaining the "910 Tailgate Lot."
