Kentucky is not the only state with a huge sports radio audience.
That was the case in the 2016-17 campaign, when Kentucky Sports Radio Network was the most-watched sport station in the state, with more than 7.5 million listeners, according to Nielsen data.
The Kentucky Sports radio network, which started in 2006 and has gone from strength to strength, continues to have strong coverage across Kentucky, with a total of 16 sports programming.
“It’s an exciting time to be a sports fan in Kentucky,” said Kyle Koster, vice president of sales and marketing for the station.
“We have fans across the state that are excited about what the next wave of sports will bring to the state.”
The station’s first season was a huge success, with the station broadcasting more than 1,200 games and winning the 2017 KSRN Championship in Louisville.
In 2017-18, KSRNs flagship program, The Sports Show, was the station’s most-streamed show.
The program is produced by local talent, and it features interviews and in-depth discussions with current and former players and coaches.”KSRN is a nationally recognized sports radio station and we are proud of what we have accomplished in the past five years,” said Koster.
“This program has been a critical part of our growth and we look forward to continuing to develop the program in 2018.”
In 2017-19, Kentucky Sports was also one of only five sports stations to be the most popular on ESPN3.
KSRNS sports program has become one of the most listened to sports stations in Kentucky and has more than 12.4 million listeners.
The station is currently in the midst of a multiyear, national renewal.
“The Kentucky Sports Show is a great way for our audience to get into sports, and KSRns sports program is a must-listen program for many people in Kentucky that love sports,” said Dave Tippett, chief executive officer of The Next Group.
“Our program is broadcast by a local talent and brings our fans a great variety of voices, so it is the perfect complement to The Next Media Network.”KSRNs first season on ESPN 3 was a hit, with listeners tuning in more than 4.7 million times to the show.
It has also been one of ESPN’s most popular programming on mobile devices, with an average of 4.3 million users per day, according.
The company is also looking at expanding the program to a new platform.
