Long Beach State Partners With KLAA AM830

Aug. 21, 2017

Long Beach, Calif. - Long Beach State, Beach Sports Properties and KLAA AM830 have entered into an agreement for an expansion of the Long Beach State Radio Network which will see 12 Men's Basketball games broadcast live on AM830 during the 2017-18 season.

In a unique arrangement, Long Beach State will continue its relationship with KBEACH/22 West Media which is now in its fourth year, providing student opportunities to produce live sports broadcasts while adding an additional partner within the Long Beach State Radio Network.

"We are elated to form this partnership with Angels Radio," said Rob Clark, Senior Associate Athletic Director for External Relations. "Long Beach State University has a rich tradition that needs to be spread throughout Southern California and this partnership helps us better serve our faithful Beach fans."

KBEACH/22 West Media will continue to produce and distribute every game during the Men's Basketball season which will continue to be available online through www.longbeachstate.com as well as KBEACH.org and via HD Radio at 88.1-3.

"This is a tremendous hands on-opportunity for our students, made especially great by the fact that it's being offered in the second largest radio market in the country," said Danny Lemos, KBEACH/22 West Radio advisor. "It's a real resume builder, and continues a great relationship with KLAA."

Through this new partnership, the same broadcast will be simulcast over-the-air on AM830 KLAA, providing the first regular over-the-air radio broadcast for Long Beach State Athletics in over 10 years.

"We are excited to add Long Beach State basketball to our KLAA AM830 roster," said Angels Club Chairman Dennis Kuhl. "It is our continued goal to provide as much live local sports programming to the region as possible. The KLAA AM830 family is pleased LBSU has joined us as we move forward with those efforts."

The partnership will extend throughout the season, ultimately including 12 games. Three of the first four games of the season will all be broadcast on AM830, beginning with the regular season opener at San Francisco on Friday, November 10. Long Beach State's home game on December 3 against Stanford will be the first of three games carried in December.

 

 

Six of the program's 16 Big West Conference games will also be on AM830, including Long Beach State's home game with UC Irvine and LBSU's trip to Hawai'i. The final game of the slate will be on Thursday, March 1, when the Beach takes on UC Santa Barbara.
