KKOW Sports Director

"860AM KKOW has a commitment to sports coverage that is very rare among radio stations in similar markets. The reason is simple; there is a desire to provide the most comprehensive coverage to listeners who are passionate about their sports teams ranging from local high schools, to colleges to the professional level.


The local coverage starts on a daily basis with headline sportscasts that give listeners the highlights of happenings in the sports world. The KKOW sports drive airs weekdays at 5:05 and is the area’s only locally produced sports show. This show is interview and information driven and covers all aspects of local, regional and national sports stories. Regular guests on the sports drive include Chiefs broadcaster Mitch Holthus, Royals broadcasters Ryan Lefebvre and Steve Stewart as well as numerous local high school and college coaches.


The most recognized aspect of sports coverage at KKOW is of Pittsburg State University Football. Pitt State is the winningest NCAA division 2 school all time and has a rich tradition of conference and national success on the field while producing more academic All Americans than any other division 2 school in the country. Coverage of Pitt State football each game day begins 1 hour prior to kickoff and continues with a comprehensive postgame show that includes a college scoreboard show. There is also a weekly radio show on Monday nights with head coach Tim Beck and numerous interviews with players and coaches that air throughout the week.


860AM is also the flagship station for exciting Pitt State University Basketball (Men) (Women). Women’s coach Lane Lord and men’s coach Kevin Muff put competitive teams on the floor and KKOW is proud to bring all the action to their listeners. Coverage of Pitt State basketball begins 20 minutes before tipoff and includes postgame interviews with both coaches. In addition to broadcasting the games, KKOW also has weekly radio shows with coach Lord and coach Muff on Thursdays throughout the season. Pitt State football and basketball are also simulcast on our sister station, rock 107.1.


Our local coverage does not stop with Pitt State. Since 1990 KKOW has broadcast every Pittsburg High Shchool Football game. The Purple Dragons have been in the playoffs more than any other school in the state. KKOW also brings listeners St. Mary's-Colgan High School regular season football on Thursdays in addition to following the Panthers through the postseason where they have been regulars with frequent visits to state championship games.


High school sports coverage at KKOW also includes select state basketball and springs sports action and has been able to bring numerous state championships to local listeners.

For fans of professional sports there is plenty of coverage that can be found on 860AM as we are the only affiliate for the Kansas City Chiefs and the Kansas City Royals in Pittsburg or Joplin. Despite struggles in recent years for these 2 teams there is a bright future for both and KKOW is glad to be a part of it.

Although this gives you a feel for how dedicated 860AM is to sports coverage there is still a lot more you can absorb. We invite you to tune in and get your fill of the best, most complete and professional sports coverage in the area. It’s all on classic country and more, 860AM KKOW."
