IMG Husker Sports Radio Basketball Network

By NU Athletic Communications

The Husker IMG Sports Network will continue the strong tradition of broadcasting excellence in 2018-19, as it brings Husker basketball to fans across the region and the world.

In the state of Nebraska, KXSP AM 590 ESPN (590 AM) serves as the Omaha affiliate. 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) in Lexington 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.

Kent Pavelka returns behind the microphone to handle his 32nd overall season calling Husker hoops in 2018-19. 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 Jake Muhleisen, who begins his first full season on the broadcast team. Muhleisen, who has served in a part-time role for the network for the last few seasons, was a four-year starter and three-year captain for the Huskers, totaling 901 points and 284 assists during his collegiate career from 2002-05. Ben McLaughlin will also be part of the broadcast team for selected broadcasts. McLaughlin co-hosts Sports Nightly and is part of the network’s football and baseball broadcast teams

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.
