Cumulus Media announced late last week that Sports/Talk radio station “AM1300 The Animal” (KCSF-AM) has added the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament and other NCAA championships to the station’s play-by-play lineup. Tournament games had previously aired on KRDO (105.5FM/1240AM) but Cumulus recently acquired the rights to the Westwood One NCAA broadcasts.

The Animal will air continuous coverage of the men’s basketball tournament starting with the First Four on March 18th and 19th going through the Elite 8. The Final Four and the national championship game will both air on AM740 KVOR.

“AM1300 The Animal is already Southern Colorado’s leader for live sports play-by-play,” said the station’s executive producer Matt Pauley in a press release sent to The Gazette. “To add the Westwood One package with the entire NCAA men’s basketball tournament and all the other NCAA championships continues to show that AM1300 The Animal is the destination all sports fans in Southern Colorado should tune their radio dial to.”

In addition to the NCAA Division I basketball tournament, The Animal will also air the DII championship game, the women’s Final Four, select NIT games, the men’s college hockey Frozen Four and the College World Series. The Animal is already the local radio home for Sky Sox baseball, Air Force hockey, the Denver Nuggets, the Colorado Avalanche and the NFL.
