Reno, Nev. – University of Nevada football can now be heard on the new ESPN Radio, 94.5 FM (KUUB) and the switch will allow for better sound quality and will reach a larger listening audience, Wolf Pack Sports Properties and Lotus Radio announced.
Wolf Pack football games, including Saturday’s game at BYU, can be heard on the new FM station and will also be simulcast on the new Fox Sports Radio 630 AM. The Nevada-BYU game is being broadcast on The Mtn. network, which is only available to certain cable and satellite systems in Northern Nevada.
“The great thing about being on the FM dial is that nearly 80% of radio listeners never go to AM stations, especially younger adults. So this extension of our reach will introduce sports talk and play-by-play sports to a whole new audience,” said Dane Wilt, general manager of Lotus Radio Corp. “The audio quality is another great feature of 94.5 FM. AM radio in most cases is great, but nothing compares to the sound of FM. We decided to keep the University of Nevada football and men's basketball programs on both Fox Sports Radio 630 AM and on The New ESPN Radio 94.5 FM. This gives listeners of both stations a chance to hear the Wolf Pack win!”
In addition to Nevada men’s basketball on the same programming schedule as football, the Wolf Pack Coaches Show will also be heard on 94.5 FM and 630 AM on Thursdays from noon until 1 p.m., live from the Wolf Den on Virginia Street. Wolf Pack women’s basketball, baseball and softball will now be heard on ESPN Radio 1450 AM.
