University of Montana Athletics, its multimedia rights holder Grizzly Sports Properties, and Townsquare Media announced today it has finalized an agreement to extend their longstanding
radio broadcast partnership through the 2017-2018 season.  This six-year extension will allow KGVO 1290 AM and 101.5 FM to remain the Grizzly flagship station for Montana sports exclusively in Missoula.

“This has been, and will continue to be, a great win-win relationship,” Grizzly Sports Properties General Manager Nick Garner said. “KGVO is the perfect partner to help us continue to grow and
expand the Griz brand throughout the Missoula Valley and the state of Montana.”

Under the terms of the agreement, KGVO 1290 AM and 101.5 FM will air all University of Montana football, men’s basketball, and women’s basketball games, as well as the coaches shows
and the daily “Grizzly Update” report throughout the week.

“We find it very exciting to be moving forward with Grizzly Athletics,” Townsquare Media market manager Shawna Batt said. “We at Townsquare Media have always considered our relationship with the University of Montana to be a natural fit. We continue to value the partnership and are very pleased to be the flagship station for the Grizzly Sports Network.”

“KGVO 1290 AM and 101.5 FM is proud to once again be the
‘Voice of the Grizzlies,’”KGVO’s Montana Morning anchor and Grizzly football
public address announcer Peter Christian said. “Listeners will be well-served
by one of the finest play-by-play announcers in the country — Mick Holien with
Grizzly football and men’s basketball, and crowd-favorite Tom Stage with the
Lady Griz. We join all of Griz Nation in saying…GO GRIZ!!” Comments from Nick Garner with Grizzly Sports Properties are below.
