PHOENIX’S NBC SPORTS KDUS 1060 AM JOINS LUMBERJACK RADIO NETWORK
NBC Sports Radio KDUS 1060 AM to air all NAU football and men’s basketball games
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – Northern Arizona University Athletics and its multimedia rights holder, Learfield’s NAU Lumberjack Sports Properties, announced on Monday a new broadcast relationship with Hubbard Radio Phoenix.
Hubbard Radio-owned KDUS-AM 1060, an NBC Sports Radio affiliate, will carry all NAU football and men’s basketball games for the next two years for the Lumberjack listening audience in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. KDUS AM 1060 will begin coverage this month, through June 2020.
“Hubbard Radio Phoenix is thrilled to be providing Phoenix area fans with NAU football and NAU men’s basketball action,” KDUS Operations Coordinator Kayla Mortellaro said. “Aligning with Learfield to add these two sports to the lineup not only brings NAU Athletics to a sports station, but it strengthens NBC Sports Radio AM 1060’s play-by-play line up in conjunction with a continued emphasis on Arizona sports teams’ coverage.”
“We are excited to add NAU football and men’s basketball game action to KDUS 1060 AM for our fans in the greater Phoenix and Scottsdale areas,” Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Mike Marlow said. “We are committed to strengthening our radio network by bringing in strong affiliates when possible. This is a great way to kick off the season and allow our fans in the Phoenix market to catch every moment of Lumberjack football and basketball when they are unable to attend games.”
NAU is one of nearly 130 collegiate institutions, conferences and arenas represented by Learfield. Its local entity, NAU Lumberjack Sports Properties, manages the relationship locally. The company’s rich history includes over four decades of developing trusted, long-term relationships with some of the most revered institutions and associations in the world of college sports.
