March 12, 2021 — Herriman, UT. The Utah Warriors announced a new radio broadcast partnership with Utah’s leading sports radio stations in ESPN 700 in Salt Lake County and ESPN 960 in Utah County.
The partnership includes the airing of all Utah Warriors games, both home and away, while also airing a weekly coach’s show on both channels.
“We’re extremely excited and grateful to bring Warriors’ rugby to Utah’s sports radio leader,” said Utah Warriors CEO and GM, Kimball Kjar, “With our current broadcast footprint of TV, OTT, and now radio there are now more ways than ever to watch and listen to the Warriors over the course of the 2021 season.”
The combined reach of the ESPN 700 and ESPN 960 partnership involved getting the Warriors’ games and content to over 50 thousand listeners along the Wasatch Front.
“On behalf of the entire team at Broadway Media we welcome the Utah Warriors professional rugby to ESPN 700 and ESPN 960 radio,” Steve Johnson, President of Broadway Media, the parent company of both stations, “We are so excited to be a partner with the Warriors organization and look forward to helping build this unique community relationship.”
The radio broadcast partnership will kick off this weekend as the Major League Rugby season starts for the Warriors as they travel to the Austin Gilgronis for the season opener. Calling the games and leading the coach’s show for the Warriors on both radio platforms will be familiar voices to Warriors Nation in play-by-play caller Jarom Jordan and color commentator Jared Banks.

We are excited to bring the game to the people on a new platform.”
