GRAND FORKS, N.D. – Fans of North Dakota Athletics will once again be served by a strong UND Sports Radio Network in 2013-14.

UND Athletics Director Brian Faison announced today that all 12 of UND’s radio affiliates will return from the 2012-13 season, including North Dakota affiliates in Beulah, Bismarck, Devils Lake, Dickinson, Fargo, Grand Forks, Langdon, Minot, Williston and Wimbledon, as well as Minnesota affiliates in Mahnomen and Warroad.

“We are excited that Clear Channel Grand Forks will continue to serve as our flagship stations for North Dakota Athletics,” said Faison. “We continue to enjoy exceptional local coverage throughout the state and the region for UND Athletics thanks to a great group of affiliates.”

Clear Channel Grand Forks will once again serve as the flagship stations for UND Athletics. KQHT-FM (96.1 “The Fox”) continues as the home for UND men’s hockey and football, while KSNR-FM (100.3 “Cat Country”) will be the home for men’s and women’s basketball. Women’s hockey will once again air on KKXL-AM (1440 “The Fan”). The new four-year contract includes UND baseball and volleyball for the first time, both of which will also air on KKXL-AM. Additionally, the UND Coaches Show will be carried live on Wednesday nights on KKXL-AM.

There will also be daily two-minute "UND Sports Today" updates, which will air across most of the UND Sports Radio Network.

“Clear Channel is thrilled to have the opportunity to continue our partnership with the University of North Dakota,” said Clear Channel Grand Forks Market Manager Pat McLean. “UND Athletics has been a big part of the growth of our radio stations over the past decade-plus. Thank you to Mr. Faison and his staff for the faith they have in our people.”

WDAY-AM 970 in Fargo returns with double the signal strength and will carry UND football, men’s hockey and the UND Coaches Show, as well as other mutually agreed upon events under a new contract that calls for up to 100 events. In addition, both KFYR 550 AM and ESPN 710 AM in Bismarck will carry football and men’s hockey games, with ESPN 710 AM also carrying the UND Coaches Show.

The on-air talent for UND Athletics also remains intact for the 2013-14 season. Tim Hennessy returns for his 35th year as the voice of UND men’s hockey, while Jack Michaels returns for his third year as the voice of UND football. Paul Ralston (ninth year) and Mitch Wigness (second year) return to call men’s and women’s basketball, respectively, and Darrin Looker returns for his eight season as the voice of women’s hockey.

Hennessy and Ralston will team to host the UND Coaches Show every Wednesday night from the final week of August through the end of the men’s hockey season. The UND Coaches Show broadcasts live from the Ground Round Grill & Bar in Grand Forks at 6:30 p.m. Central. Fans are encouraged to attend the live show to interact with UND coaches and broadcasters while enjoying food and drink specials.

The first broadcast of the UND Coaches Show in 2013-14 season is scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 28.
