Star 100.5 to Broadcast Bearkat Football

Sam Houston State University will have a new radio home for live play-by-play broadcasts of Bearkat football in 1999 -- Star 100.5 FM KMVL.

Bearkat Director of Athletics Bobby Williams and KMVL Owner-General Manager Leon Hunt announced that Star 100.5 FM, a powerful 25,000-watt station located in Madisonville with a signal that covers all of Walker and Madison Counties and eight other surrounding counties, will be the official football voice of Sam Houston State.

"This is a marvelous opportunity for Sam Houston State to reach a larger number of listeners and help create more Bearkat fans," said Williams. "We're proud to welcome Star 100.5 FM KMVL into the Bearkat program. Leon Hunt, a Sam Houston State alumnus, and his staff will provide Bearkat fans a quality broadcast that will allow our fans to be part of the fun and excitement of Bearkat football both at Bowers Stadium in Huntsville and on the road in the Southland Football League."

Hunt, who will be the play-by-play voice of the Bearkats this fall, is equally delighted with the agreement.

"This is a lifetime dream come true for me personally and an outstanding opportunity for Star 100.5 FM KMVL," said Hunt. "We're excited to become the play-by-play voice of the Bearkats and hope that fans will tune in every week, whether they're in the stadium or at home. Its going to be an exciting season in 1999 for Head Coach Ron Randleman and the Bearkats and we're proud to be part of it."

Star 100.5 FM KMVL's broadcasts of Bearkat football will begin with the Sam Houston State - Delta State season opener on Thursday, September 2, at Bowers Stadium and include all 11 games both at home and on the road. KMVL also plans to air pre-game and post-game shows before and after each contest. Complete schedule details will be released as Sam Houston State and KMVL confirm game kickoff times.
