ESPN 700 will remain the flagship radio partner of the University of Utah through the 2021-22 athletic year. The university and and rights holder Learfield's Utes Sports Properties announced an extension on Tuesday. The station has been the home of Utah athletics on the radio since 1951.

The Broadway Media-owned station will continue to air live broadcasts of football, men's basketball and women's basketball games as well as the respective coaches' shows for each of those sports.

The release from the university also announced that the station will air all home Utah gymnastics meets as well as weekday night and weekend home baseball games. The Bill Riley Show will also featured segments highlighting Utah's other sports programs.

"We are ecstatic to create a new agreement with Utes Sports Properties and remain the radio flagship home for Utah Athletics for the next five years," Kayvon Motiee, President for Broadway Media in Salt Lake City, said in the release. "There's not a better time than right now to be associated with the University of Utah. Broadway Media and ESPN 700 will work hard to continue to build on the Utes' legacy that's been established."
