KTALK-AM 1340 has changed its programming and is now an ESPN Sports Radio affiliate. The switch occurred at 7 a.m. on Sunday.
“A few years ago, we had been an ESPN affiliate on nights and weekends,” Haugo Broadcasting vice president and general manager Chris Haugo said. “We always thought about going back.”
The Black Hills had been without ESPN on the radio since January when KRKI switched to Fox Sports Radio.
Haugo said he has already heard a lot of positive response from listeners and advertisers about the switch.
Haugo said KTALK will continue to broadcast area high school athletic contests as well as University of Nebraska football.
