BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - Derron Steenbergen, executive producer of The Big Red Radio Network, announced Monday that as the football season kicks off this week the network will have 14 affiliates, making it the second-largest collegiate sports network in Kentucky.
"The additions of WEKT-AM in Elkton and WSON-AM in Henderson have tremendously enhanced our footprint in Kentucky," Steenbergen said. "These are heritage radio stations playing vital roles in each community. The move to WKJK-AM in Louisville has greatly increased our presence in the state's largest city.
"The growth being experienced by The Big Red Radio Network is a direct correlation to the success of the Western programs. The network is tracking according to plan and we are hopeful of more announcements as basketball approaches!"
The originating station for Western football for the second consecutive year will be WKLX-FM (100.7) in Bowling Green. Other stations and cities that will be part of the Big Red Radio Network this year are: WPTQ-FM (103.7) in Bowling Green, WTCO-AM (1450) of Campbellsville, Elizabethtown's WIEL-AM (1400), WEKT-AM (1070) of Elkton, WKXF-AM (1600) in Eminence/Shelbyville, WCDS-AM (1440) of Glasgow, WSON-AM (860) in Henderson, Leitchfield's WKHG-FM (104.9), WKJK-AM (1080) of Louisville, Madisonville's WTTL-AM (1310), WLME-FM (102.9) of Owensboro, WPKY-AM (1580) in Princeton and WSPC-AM (1240) of Somerset.
