K-State Football Plays Here!

A new era in Kansas State University Football begins this fall with Chris Klieman taking over for legendary coach Bill Snyder. What will the new-look Wildcats bring to the table? We will find out as every K-State Football game is broadcast live on Classic Hits 106.7 & 1530 AM KQNK in Northwest Kansas and Classic Country FM 94.1 & 1570 AM KNDY in Northeast Kansas.

Streaming of Kansas State Athletics is restricted to a 75 mile radius of our radio stations. This would be a 75 mile radius of Marysville, Kansas for Classic Country FM 94.1 KNDY, and a 75 mile radius of Norton, Kansas for Classic Hits 106.7 KQNK. This is a restriction placed on us by Learfield IMG College, the play by play rights holder for both Kansas and Kansas State Universities.
