After more than 70 years, Lufkin’s oldest radio station KRBA has lost the contract to carry Lufkin Panther sports.  Lufkin school superintendent Roy Knight says he has decided to move the games to stations owned by Townsquare Media.

Knight gave no reason for the historic change, saying only that the district’s “contract with Yates Broadcasting came to an end. We have reevaluated and we are going with a different carrier.”

Townsquare Media Vice President and General Manager Tami Koonce says “We are very honored and excited to be able to show our support for Lufkin sports, and we’re excited to build on what’s already been a winning tradition.”

Koonce says Gary Ivins will continue as play-by-play announcer, and do a weekday sports talk show on Q107 FM.

KRBA has carried Lufkin Panther football games since it went on the air in 1938.  Yates Media Owner and General Manager Stephen Yates says he always felt privileged to carry the games on his stations.
