KKOV adds college, high school sports


Pamplin Broadcasting’s KKOV-AM 1550 Vancouver, WA/Portland OR (“Vancouver’s Talk Station”) has added a local sports compliment to its lineup that will include University of Washington Football and Greater St. Helens League High School Football.

Via a three-year deal with IMG College, AM 1550 will broadcast all University of Washington Football games, including the Pre/Post Game Shows.  The station will also air a package of 16 Greater St. Helen’s League High School Football games over nine weeks on Friday nights with long-time Vancouver Play-by-play Announcer Ron Soanka.  The games will consist mostly of Double-header games for 3A and 4A High Schools.  All games will be played and aired from McKenzie Stadium at Evergreen High School in Vancouver.

Said Dennis Glasgow, KPAM/KKOV PD: “This is our continuing promise to the Southwest Washington listener that we’re committed to local programming that is most important to them.  We’re acutely aware of Husky Nation and their insatiable thirst for Husky Sports, and we’re here to meet their demands.  Airing University of Washington Sports and GSHL Football is a no-brainer for AM 1550 and we’re grateful for the opportunity to bring quality College and Amateur sports on Vancouver’s only Talk Station.”

KKOV is also home to programs that include Michael Savage, Doug Urbanski , Jim Bohannon, Neal Boortz, Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Michael Medved, and Hugh Hewitt.
