Crimson Tide Football Games to be Heard in Honolulu
|RADIO ONLINE | Monday, April 16, 2018|
Learfield's Crimson Tide Sports Marketing has announced a new radio relationship allowing Crimson Tide fans in Honolulu, HI, the opportunity to hear Alabama football games and related programming on KHKA-AM (NBC Sports Radio AM 1500) and KKEA-AM (ESPN 1420). Beginning this fall, Crimson Tide football games -- in addition to all expanded pregame and postgame network programming -- will be carried on two stations. In addition, listeners can hear the daily "Crimson Tide Today" on both stations, providing highlights on all sports across the University of Alabama campus.
"We're excited to bring Alabama football to our Honolulu audience," said Blow Up LLC President/GM Mike Kelly, owner and operator of KKEA and KHKA. "The Crimson Tide have a football tradition that is second to none, and the heroics of Hawaii's own Tua Tagovailoa in last season's national championship game have created a new wave of Alabama fans right here in the Islands."
This marks the first time ever on the Hawaiian Islands that Learfield's Crimson Tide Sports Network will have radio coverage of Alabama football. Fans will hear the "Voice of Alabama Football" Eli Gold, who enters his 30th year calling memorable plays for the Crimson Tide. The radio team also includes color analyst Phil Savage and sideline reporter Chris Stewart.
"We are thrilled to have this additional Network coverage of Alabama football on NBC Sports Radio AM 1500 and ESPN 1420 in Honolulu," said Crimson Tide Sports Marketing Vice President and General Manager Jim Carabin. "Our new relationship with these stations enhances the growth of the University of Alabama brand and an opportunity to grow our fanbase even further."
