San Diego State University and FOX Sports College Properties have announced a multi-year agreement with iHeartMedia San Diego to broadcast San Diego State University Football and Men’s Basketball games beginning with the 2017 football season. Fans will be able to hear the game broadcasts locally on 101.5 KGB and XTRA 1360AM FOX Sports San Diego, on Fox Sports 1350 in Riverside, and nationwide on iHeartRadio’s live streaming radio service.
In addition to the pre-, post- and in-game broadcasts, iHeartMedia San Diego will produce and air a weekly “Coaches Show” with Head Football Coach, Rocky Long, and new Men’s Basketball Head Coach, Brian Dutcher. Select SDSU Baseball and post-season Women’s Basketball games will be heard on XTRA 1360 AM.
“We are very excited about partnering with iHeart Media San Diego for our radio rights,” said John David Wicker, SDSU Athletic Director. “The success of not only our football program, which has won consecutive conference championships and finished in the top 25 last season, our men’s basketball program, which has won an unprecedented 10 Mountain West conference championships, but of all of our sports, which have combined to claim 34 team conference titles since the beginning of the 2012-13 season, is something in which the University and the entire San Diego community can take great pride. We look forward to working with iHeart to share the successes of our student-athletes for years to come.”
iHeartMedia’s Newsradio 600 KOGO, San Diego’s News and Information Station, previously held the broadcast rights for SDSU Athletics from 2007 to 2013. The Aztects had most recently aired their games on the Mighty 1090.
“We are thrilled to welcome back the San Diego State Aztecs to the iHeartMedia family,” said Melissa Forrest, President of iHeartMedia’s San Diego/Riverside Region. “The partnership is a natural fit, given our past broadcast history with SDSU, our unparalleled reach through our multiple platforms and the widely popular Sky Show association for the past 13 years. We can’t wait for the season to start.”
