KXSP-AM’s strong signal reaches a good portion of the Midwest day and night, including parts of Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri and Kansas. KLIN (1400 AM) serves as the Lincoln affiliate while KRVN (880 AM) is a powerful central Nebraska affiliate that reaches around the state. In addition the network has several dozen locally based affiliates across Nebraska. All broadcasts are heard live on Huskers.com, the Husker App, the TuneIn Radio App, TuneIn.com while select games are available on SiriusXM Satellite Radio.

The Husker IMG Sports Network, in its 21st year of producing and marketing the live broadcasts of University of Nebraska Athletics, extended and expanded its agreement with the University on June 13, 2008. Under the agreement, IMG College’s Husker IMG Sports Marketing manages and markets all rights associated with the radio programming, Coaches’ TV and radio shows, program sales, in-venue signage, sponsorship inventory, and publication printing rights.

Kent Pavelka returns behind the microphone to handle his 30th overall season calling Husker hoops in 2016-17. Pavelka previously called Nebraska basketball for two long stints between 1974 and 1996 before returning to the Husker basketball play-by-play chair prior to the 2006-07 season. A six-time winner of the Nebraska Sportscaster-of-the-Year Award, Pavelka also handled color analyst duties on NU football broadcasts from 1974 to 1983, and was the play-by-play announcer from 1983 to 1996. Pavelka was honored in January 2009 with the Bud Cuca Special Merit Award given by the Nebraska Basketball Hall of Fame for his contributions to the NU men’s basketball program.

Alongside Pavelka as color analyst will be Matt Davison, who played both basketball and football for the Huskers. He is beginning his 12th season on the basketball broadcast team and also handles color commentary on the Nebraska football radio broadcasts along with appearances on Sports Nightly.

In addition to unmatched game coverage, Sports Nightly airs Monday-Friday evenings for three hours year round across the network. During the basketball season, Sports Nightly features a weekly basketball radio show on Monday evenings with Coach Miles and Husker assistant coaches. Sports Nightly can be heard on a network of over two dozen radio stations across Nebraska, as well as the Husker App, Huskers.com, TuneIn.com, and the TuneIn App.
