Western Colorado sports fans should be excited about the latest addition to the Grand Junction radio landscape.

The most trusted and well-known name in sports broadcasting, ESPN Western Colorado, is now available on your Grand Junction FM dial at 96.5 - and sports radio never sounded better.

ESPN Western Colorado was added to the Townsquare Media family of radio stations back in 2013 on AM 1230 KEXO, where it has steadily grown an audience of sports fans who eat, sleep, and breath sports. Townsquare Media is now pleased to launch ESPN Western Colorado on 96.5 FM as well.

ESPN Western Colorado features a daily lineup of compelling and entertaining sports talk programming highlighted by long-time ESPN host and anchor Mike Greenburg, best known for his nearly 20 years of co-hosting ESPN's popular morning TV show Mike and Mike.
