Townsquare Media of Lubbock and IMG College Announce Extension of Baylor Bears Partnership
Townsquare Media of Lubbock and IMG College this morning announced a multi-year extension of their previous partnership for radio broadcasts of Baylor Bears football games to be aired in Lubbock.
Baylor Bears Football is coming off of one of their most successful seasons in school history with Robert Griffin III winning the Heisman Trophy, an Alamo Bowl win against Washington and a 10-3 record. Head coach Art Briles is now in his fifth season at Baylor with a career record of 59-33 as a head coach.
Most of the Bears football games will be aired on our sister station, News/Talk 790, KFYO with the September 2 & 21 games to be aired right here on SportsRadio 1340 The Fan.
Baylor alum, John Morris (pictured, right), returns as the play-by-play voice of Baylor this fall. The “Voice of the Bears,” John Morris (Baylor, 1980), enters his 26th year broadcasting Baylor football and men’s basketball in 2012-13. Morris also produces the daily “State Farm Baylor SportsBeat,” daily Big 12 reports and co-hosts the award-winning “Inside Baylor Sports” television show.
Morris also hosts the “State Farm Baylor Hour” January through May and a daily 60-minute program, “The John Morris Show,” on Waco’s 1660 ESPN Radio.
The 2012-13 athletic year is Morris’ 17th year as signature voice of Baylor athletics since succeeding the legendary Frank Fallon. In November 2002, he was presented the Frank Fallon Sportsmanship Award by the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce.
All Baylor Bears Football games will be preceded with a 30-minute pregame show and will be concluded with a 30-minute postgame show.
The 2012 Baylor Bears Football schedule, along with the Lubbock radio stations for game broadcasts, can be found below.
