Football’s Pregame Show KXNO

By Chris Williams, Publisher

We’ve got so many great things going on here at and today, I’m happy to announce just one of them.

Three hours before kickoff of Iowa State home football games this season, you’ll be able to tune into 1460 KXNO for the hour-long Pregame Show that will be hosted by yours truly.

The show will originate from the tailgate spot of our CF’s primary owner,, Jason Loutsch, which is just to the south of Jack Trice Stadium.

For example, if there is a 6 p.m. kick, we’ll take the air from three to four. Then, the Cyclone Radio Network will begin their broadcast at four over on 100.3 The Bus, 1430 KASI etc.

We’ll also welcome you Cyclone Fanatics to stop by while the show is going on to pick up CF footballs, koozies and a whole lot more.

We’re 64 days away from kickoff. As always, go Cyclones!
