Gonzaga Radio Contract Extended

Nov. 20, 2004

SPOKANE, Wash. - Gonzaga University athletic director Mike Roth announced on Saturday a 5-year extension of the Bulldogs radio package with Brett Sports & Entertainment and Citadel Communications.

Brett Sports and Citadel are in the fourth season of the initial 5-year contract with the Bulldogs. The new contract extends the partnership through the 2008-09 season. Bulldogs men's and women's basketball, and baseball are broadcast by Brett Sports and Citadel.

"We're delighted to be able to continue our relationship with Brett Sports and Citadel Communications" Roth said. "It has been a seamless partnership and we're excited about being on 50,000-watt 1510 KGA radio for men's and women's basketball another five seasons. The baseball broadcasts have also increased our exposure."

Brett Sports and Citadel Communications are also looking forward to continuing the relationship.

"We are very happy about this extension and being a part of the excitement around Gonzaga men's and women's basketball," Dave Pier, vice president of Brett Sports & Entertainment, said. "We think the partnership we have with Gonzaga and Citadel Communications has worked well for all three entities."

"We are excited to continue as the radio rights holder for Gonzaga," said Jim Votaw, general manager of Citadel Communications in Spokane. "The association with Gonzaga and Brett Sports has been excellent for everyone, and we're pleased KGA radio will continue to be the home for men's and women's basketball."

KGA program director Dan Mitchinson echoed those sentiments.

"Gonzaga is a very important cog in our programming efforts," Mitchinson said. "To continue to be the home of the Bulldogs has been, and will continue to be, very important to us. We're looking forward to a long-term relationship."

KGA will air all men's basketball games home and away this season, and will also broadcast a limited number of women's games from the McCarthey Athletic Center. KGA will also broadcast all post-season action involving the men's and women's basketball teams.

Bulldog baseball will continue to air on a station to be determined. The baseball broadcast schedule will be announced later this winter.

In conjunction with the new contract, KGA will also continue to air the Tuesday night "Mark Few Coaches Show" from 7-8 p.m. The show will air on most Tuesday's between now and the end of the season unless the Bulldogs have a game scheduled. Tom Hudson, the radio voice of Bulldog basketball and the sports director at KREM-TV in Spokane, will host the show. The show include a variety of guests from the Bulldog men's and women's basketball programs and athletic administration.

The "Mark Few Coaches Show" schedule is as follows:

November: 23, 30. December: 14. January: 4, 11, 18, 25. February: 1, 8, 15, 22.
