Oskaloosa–William Penn Athletics Director Nik Rule is proud to announce that the University has entered into an agreement with KMZN/KMYQ to broadcast radio coverage of all the men’s and women’s basketball Heart of America Athletic Conference games this winter.
Beginning with tonight’s home doubleheader against Mount Mercy (5:30 & 7:30 tipoffs), KMZN 99.5 FM and 740 AM will serve as the flagship stations for all Statesmen basketball radio broadcasts, both at home in Penn Gymnasium and on the road. KMZN/KMYQ Sports Director Emery Songer will be the ‘Voice of the Statesmen’, while Kiley Broadway will provide color commentary for most contests.
Listeners in Sigourney, Keota, Kalona, North and South English, Williamsburg, Wellman and Washington can also hear the games simulcasted on the company’s newest station, KMYQ 97.1 FM. The games will be broadcast over the internet at www.radiokmzn.com as well.
The entities have been partners for numerous years for William Penn football broadcasts.
“We are excited to partner with the team at KMZN/KMYQ to be the voice of William Penn Athletics and cover our conference basketball games this winter,” Rule said. “Many of our teams are among the best in the nation in small college athletics and we look forward to having the leader in radio in our community broadcast our games.”
