The Gustavus Adolphus College Athletics Department has entered into an agreement with Ingstad Brothers Broadcasting of New Ulm to broadcast its athletic events on KNUJ AM (860) and KRDS FM (95.5 FM) for the 2006-07 school year. Approximately 40 events will be broadcast during the year. The Saturday afternoon football and men’s basketball games will be carried on KNUJ AM out of New Ulm, while the evening basketball games will be broadcast on KRDS FM out of Montgomery.
The new agreement brings about a significant change for the Gustavus athletic broadcasts as the Gustie games have been carried on KRBI Radio in St. Peter for more than 30 years. “After very thoughtful consideration, we made a business decision to enter into an agreement with Ingstad Brothers Broadcasting,” stated Athletic Director Al Molde. “We are very grateful for the strong relationship we have had with KRBI over the past 30 years, however this new opportunity will allow us to significantly extend our listening area, as well as increase our advertising base to support the broadcasts.”
The first broadcast for the 2006-07 school year will be the Gustavus football game at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon on Saturday, September 9. Tom Wheeler will handle the play-by-play duties for all of the football and basketball broadcasts.
