THE WILDCATS ON RADIO
A Kentucky basketball tradition through the years has been the ability of the legions of Big Blue fans to catch the Cats on radio. Listening to Kentucky basketball has been a tradition in the Commonwealth and across the country for decades. Nearly every Kentuckian has fond memories of sitting around a radio on a cold winter night, living and dying with the fortunes of the Big Blue.
As usual, the excitement and action of Kentucky's 88th season of basketball will be broadcast to fans across the country on one of the largest college networks in the nation.
The network once again includes clear-channel WHAS in Louisville, 840 on the AM dial.
