PALO ALTO, Calif. – Stanford University football fans living in the San Francisco Bay area will continue to find Cardinal game action on the Sports Leader KNBR 1050 AM through the 2019-20 season.

The Cumulus Media-owned radio station extended its relationship with the Cardinal in an agreement with Learfield, Stanford’s rights and broadcast partner that manages all aspects of the radio network.
