Maybe next they'll bring back Al Brady Law ...

From STLToday:

Mizzou's radio broadcasts of football and men's basketball are switching to KTRS (550 AM) this fall, the school announced today.

The station will carry all football, men's basketball, "Tiger Talk" coaches' shows and "Tiger Update" daily reports as part of a multi-year agreement with the Tiger Network.

Mizzou Sports Properties, the locally based entity of collegiate multimedia rights leader Learfield Sports, manages all aspects of the broadcasts, as well as the Tiger Network.

Previously, Mizzou's primary radio outlet in the St. Louis area had been KMOX (1120 AM).

Mizzou fills a void on KTRS, which had the Cardinals for five years before losing them this season back to KMOX.

"KTRS is proud to once again partner with the University of Missouri as the radio station in St. Louis for Mizzou football and basketball," said Tim Dorsey, general manager of KTRS. "University of Missouri is one of the premier programs in college sports, and Mizzou fans will now have a consistent radio home at 550 AM for the Tiger Network."

"We are very pleased to partner with KTRS as our new radio affiliate in St. Louis," said University of Missouri Director of Athletics Mike Alden. "St. Louis is a very important city for us, and we know this partnership will be a positive one for Mizzou, KTRS and our fans."
