Husker Games on the Radio
Huskers will be on the Radio for 2013 - 1060 KRCN (formerly KLMO). There will be two hours of local "College Gameday" style show before joining the network for one hour of pregame. There will also be extended post game coverage as well. 
Some games will also air on AM 1580 in Colorado Springs. Currently, the Huskers will be on for the Minnesota and Iowa games. As more kick off times are announced, additional games may be added to the Colorado Springs Station.  
If you would like more information about Huskers on the Radio or advertising, please email Coloradans for Nebraska business partner, Mark.  

You can also listen on your smart phone using the TuneIn app for iPhone or Droid phones.  Just select 1060 KRCN as one of your favorites and listen to the pregame show that caters to Huskers right here in Colorado.  Then stay tuned in for the game!

Letter from Scholarship Recipient
Sara Arneson


Dear Coloradans for Nebraska,

Thank you so much for granting me an academic scholarship for the 2013-2014 UNL school year!  I am incredibly grateful for the commitment and hard work demonstrated by each CFN member. Your generosity is what allows scholarship recipients to have the opportunity to attend a Nebraska University, and for that I am so thankful!  As a Junior dual majoring in Communication Studies and Global Studies, returning to Lincoln  is something I always look forward to.  From the new courses, Fall activities, and Husker football games, there is not a place in the world more exciting to be then on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus. I feel very fortunate to be able to experience what it means to be a Husker, and I know this would not be possible without each Coloradans for Nebraska member and donor.  I truly am looking forward to another wonderful year and experiencing new reasons why "there is no place like Nebraska."
