FAYETTEVILLE (UofA) - For the 20th-consecutive season, every pitch of the Arkansas baseball season can be heard on the Razorback Baseball Radio Network. The Razorback Sports Network from IMG College and Razorback Sports Properties spans the state of Arkansas and can also be heard in neighboring states as well as across the globe via ArkansasRazorbacks.com.
The Razorback Baseball Radio Network from IMG College is one of the largest collegiate baseball radio networks in the nation. With more than 20 affiliates, Razorback baseball games are rarely more than a dial away no matter where an Arkansas fan resides.
"We are excited that the Razorback Baseball radio network continues to expand coverage throughout the state and region," Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long said. "The success of our baseball program, including the first back-to-back NCAA Super Regional appearances in school history, has led to the continued growth of our fan base. With a new affiliate and additional games added to the broadcast schedule in Central Arkansas, Razorback fans will get an opportunity to follow Coach Dave Van Horn and his team throughout the 2011 season."
KQSM 92.1 FM The Ticket and The Buzz KABZ 103.7 return as the home of Razorback Baseball in Northwest and Central Arkansas, respectively. One addition to the affiliate list is KXJK-AM 950 in Forrest City, which will carry 40 Arkansas games this season, including every game of a weekend series. The complete list of affiliates for the 2011 season is below.
