In its third season at McLane Stadium, Baylor football radio broadcasts will again be available to fans across the Lone Star state on the Baylor IMG Sports Network and nationally on Sirius Satellite Radio, school officials announced Tuesday.

The Bears open their 2016 season Friday, Sept. 2, at 6:30 p.m. by hosting Northwestern State in McLane Stadium.

“Once again, we have assembled a great line-up of stations for our fans to follow the Bears on the Baylor-IMG Sports Network,” said Baylor Executive Associate A.D./External Affairs Nick Joos. “This is an outstanding group of affiliates and we appreciate their continued support in bringing our games to Baylor fans across the state.”

Waco's ESPN Radio KRZI 1660AM/99.1FM again returns as the flagship station for all Baylor Athletics broadcasts. In total, Baylor football will be broadcast on 13 Texas radio stations in 2016.

All of the network's stations in Texas' three largest markets will remain unchanged for the upcoming season. Houston-area listeners can catch the games on Newstalk 1070 AM, KNTH. In Dallas, Newstalk 660 AM, KSKY, will broadcast the games, while San Antonio-area fans can tune in for games on "The Word in South Texas" 630 AM, KSLR, while KLUP, 930 AM will also carry the game in the Alamo City market.

In addition to those stations, play-by-play of the 2016 Bears will also air in Abilene (KMWX, 92.5FM), Amarillo (KNSH, 1550AM), Austin (KTXW, 1120AM), Carthage/Tyler (KXPI, 100.7FM), Lubbock (KFYO-AM & KKAM-AM, 790/1340), Lufkin (KYBI, 100.1FM) and Ranger/Stephenville (KWBY, 98.5FM).

Games will also be available online at, Sirius/XM Radio and the TuneIn Radio app.

The "Voice of the Bears," John Morris, will handle the play-by-play duties for the Baylor IMG team, which will mark his 30th year broadcasting Baylor football and 22nd as the signature voice of Baylor Athletics. Former Baylor quarterback standout J.J. Joe, a Baylor Hall of Fame member, will provide analysis for the broadcast for a 13th season. Sideline reporting duties will be handled by Baylor Athletic Hall of Famer Ricky Thompson, who played seven years with the NFL's Washington Redskins and is back for his 17th season along the sidelines. Other members of the 2016 Baylor football radio broadcast crew include engineer Bob Baker and Baylor Scott & White-IMG Network studio host D.J. Landry.

Broadcasts on 1660AM begin two hours prior to kickoff with the Baylor Alumni Network Tailgate Show, while the other network affiliates are scheduled to begin pregame coverage 30 minutes prior to kickoff with the Baylor Countdown to Kickoff.

Following the game, 1660AM will carry two hours of postgame coverage, including the First Central Credit Union Post Game Show and the Fan Forum Post Game Show with hosts Derek Smith, Jay Lockett and Elliot Coffey. The other stations will carry the 30-minute First Central Credit Union Post Game Show.
