“KU’s desire to be the primary focus of the radio station would have compromised our commitment to the extensive partnership we have with Major League Baseball in Kansas City,” a release from 610 read. “That wasn’t something we were willing to accommodate.”

Interesting that they are willing to accommodate K-State though.

Dunno what prompted this post yesterday, but that statement is total cover your ass bullshit. They got seriously outbid by 810 is what happened. KU making significantly more from 810 than they were from 610.

Not quite. When a Royals game and kitten game occur at same time, 610 AM will still broadcast Royals game and lateral coverage of kitten game to 980 AM -- very similar to how Jayhawks were treated by Entercom-610 AM-980 AM.
