UH stays with 790 KBME

Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Houston announced today a multi-year agreement with The University of Houston to keep SportsTalk 790 as the home of its football and basketball coverage through the 2015 seasons.

The University of Houston fans will be able to hear all regular season football and
basketball games on SportsTalk 790. In addition, weekly coach’s shows and other
University of Houston related programming will broadcast on SportsTalk 790 through the
2015 seasons. This year’s broadcast coverage will begin Saturday, September 1, when the
University of Houston will take on Texas State in a matchup of interstate rivals. Football broadcasts will include an hour long Tailgate Show, a 30-minute Pregame Show, game broadcasts and a 30-minute Postgame Show.

“We are thrilled to team up with the University of Houston and IMG for another three
years. The University of Houston and its athletic program have always portrayed the
highest degree of excellence both on and off the field,” said Eddie Martiny, President and Market Manager, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Houston. “The University of
Houston is the type of institution we love to align our properties with and this longstanding relationship will only reinforce SportsTalk 790’s love for the Houston community and all things sports in this great city.”

“We are excited to again work with SportsTalk 790 and Clear Channel Houston to bring
greater coverage to University of Houston fans,” said Pat Streko, Houston IMG’s General
Manager. “Continuing our relationship with the market leader ensures that Houston
Athletics will continue to be an integral part of the sports landscape in Houston. The
extended football pregame show coupled with additional broadcasts of the Tony Levine
Show and the James Dickey Show will provide fans throughout the region with expanded
coverage.”
