Omaha metro’s top-ranked sports and sports talk station, 1620 The ZONE, will remain the flagship station for Creighton Men’s Basketball under a three-year contract extension.
“We’ve had an outstanding relationship with Creighton University for many years, and we are extremely excited that our relationship will continue for many years to come,” said Mark Shecterle, General Manager of NRG Radio Omaha.
“We are very happy to continue our relationship with NRG,” Creighton Associate Director of Athletics Kevin Sarver said. “1620 The ZONE has long been Omaha’s premier sports talk radio station and having our men’s basketball game broadcasts as part of its programming lineup, along with the home games also available on 101.9 The Keg, is a great fit for our program and our fans.”
Afternoon talk-show host John Bishop will continue to handle play-by-play duties while Fox Sports Radio talk show host and national college basketball television analyst Nick Bahe, will continue to provide color commentary.
The agreement covers the 2019-20, 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons and gives The ZONE exclusive rights to broadcast play-by-play for all home and away games as well as pre-game and post-game coverage. Creighton’s home games will also continue to be broadcast live on 101.9 The Keg as part of the contract extension.
