TEMPE, Ariz.—IMG, the sponsorship division for Arizona State University athletics, has secured Tucson radio station KEVT, PowerTalk1210 AM for its Sun Devil Sports Network for 2014-15, IMG General Manager Ed Olsen announced Thursday.  The flagship station for Sun Devil Athletics is Arizona Sports 98.7 FM (KMVP) and 620 AM (KTAR).

“A Tucson affiliate serves many needs for our athletic department and completes a statewide footprint for our sponsors,” says Olsen.  "The added exposure in Southern Arizona makes us more competitive in the marketplace and is long overdue for our many fans that live in that part of the state.”

 "We're excited to be the Tucson affiliate for the largest University in the nation,” says Jim Parisi, Station Manager for PowerTalk1210, KEVT, Tucson.  "Arizona State University is so competitive in both football and basketball we know we will have an amazing product on-air for our sports fans.  The natural in-state rivalry with Tucson's University of Arizona adds to the excitement, since the ASU games will usually have some bearing on the conference standings. So the games will be meaningful for fans of both schools.  We can't wait." 

PowerTalk1210 has the most experienced talk line-up in the city of Tucson during the day.  It carries Fox Sports on nights and weekends.

The last time ASU had a network affiliate in Tucson was 2008. 

Baseball and women's basketball also play a major role in the Sun Devil Sports Network and will once again be broadcast on NBC Sports Radio AM 1060 during the 2014-15 season.
