OGDEN -- The Wildcats are headed to "The Zone."
Weber State University Athletics announce a partnership Friday with KZNS-AM 1280, known as "The Zone," to broadcast Weber State football and men's basketball games this season.
The Zone will be the exclusive radio home for the Wildcats and will air all football and men's basketball games live."We are very excited to have our games broadcast on 1280 The Zone," said WSU athletic director Jerry Bovee. "We feel this is a great opportunity for us to increase our exposure and our fans will enjoy hearing our games on 1280 the Zone. We're also excited for the ways they will help promote Wildcat athletics."
Carl Arky, longtime play-by-play voice of the Wildcats, will continue to broadcast all of Weber State's football and men's basketball home and away games. A pre and post-game show will continue to be a part of every WSU game.
In addition, the Zone will air a weekly coaches show and will have an increased football pre-game show, which will include tailgating at all football home games.
The Zone is an all-sports radio station in Salt Lake City that has covered Utah sports for years. In addition to being aired on 1280, many of WSU's games will be simulcast on 104.7 on the FM dial, further increasing the coverage of the Wildcats. The games will also be available live online at 1280thezone.com.
The 2011 Weber State football season will begin Sept. 3 when the Wildcats play at Wyoming.
