DENVER - The Colorado Rockies and KOA NewsRadio, an affiliate of iHeartMedia Denver, announced today that they have agreed to a five-year extension of their radio broadcast agreement that will keep Rockies baseball on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM & 94.1 FM through the 2021 season.
"We are excited to continue what has been a fantastic partnership with KOA NewsRadio since the Club's inaugural season in 1993," said Rockies Chief Operating Officer Greg Feasel. "From the game broadcasts with Jack Corrigan and Jerry Schemmel to shows like 'Rockies All Access' and 'Rockies Q&A,' KOA NewsRadio brings Colorado Rockies fans throughout the Rocky Mountain region the highest quality Rockies programming."
"The iHeartMedia Denver region takes great pride in our heritage with the Colorado Rockies. From broadcasting the team's very first pitch to seeing them to a World Series, KOA NewsRadio has always been the home of the Colorado Rockies and we are honored to continue that tradition," said Tim Hager, Region President, iHeartMedia.
Jack Corrigan and Jerry Schemmel will continue as voices of the Colorado Rockies. Corrigan is in his 14th season and Schemmel is in his sixth with the Club. In addition to play-by-play, KOA NewsRadio produces exclusive Rockies programming throughout the season, including the "Rockies On-Deck" pregame show, "Rockies All Access" with Cory Lopez on Saturdays and "Rockies Q&A" with Corrigan on Sundays.
