San Diego State University and FOX Sports College Properties announced today a multi-year agreement with iHeartMedia San Diego to broadcast SDSU Football and Men’s Basketball games beginning with the 2017 football season.
XTRA Sports 1360 and other iHeartMedia San Diego radio stations will be the flagship radio outlets for the San Diego State Aztec’s game broadcasts through the FOX Sports College Properties Network. Fans can listen to the game broadcasts locally on XTRA 1360 AM and 101.5 KGB in San Diego, on Fox Sports 1350 in Riverside, and nationwide on iHeartRadio, live streaming radio service.
In addition to the pre-, post- and in-game broadcasts, iHeartMedia San Diego will produce and air a weekly “Coaches Show” with Head Football Coach, Rocky Long, and new Men’s Basketball Head Coach, Brian Dutcher. Select SDSU Baseball and post-season Women’s Basketball games will be heard on XTRA 1360 AM.
“We are very excited about partnering with iHeart Media-San Diego for our radio rights,” said John David Wicker, SDSU Athletic Director. “The success of not only our football program, which has won consecutive conference championships and finished in the top 25 last season, our men’s basketball program, which has won an unprecedented 10 Mountain West conference championships, but of all of our sports, which have combined to claim 34 team conference titles since the beginning of the 2012-13 season, is something in which the University and the entire San Diego community can take great pride. We look forward to working with iHeart to share the successes of our student-athletes for years to come.”
“We are thrilled to welcome back the San Diego State Aztecs to the iHeartMedia family,” said Melissa Forrest, President of iHeartMedia’s San Diego/Riverside Region. “The partnership is a natural fit, given our past broadcast history with SDSU, our unparalleled reach through our multiple platforms and the widely popular Sky Show association for the past 13 years. We can’t wait for the season to start.”
Listeners will get their first chance to hear the new broadcast when the SDSU Football season opens against UC Davis on Saturday, September 2, 2017. The game also coincides with the 42nd KGB Sky Show, the annual San Diego tradition and “The Biggest Fireworks Show West of the Mississippi.”
