Matt Jones signs five-year extension with iHeart Media to continue Kentucky Sports Radio

Matt Jones is sticking around with Kentucky Sports Radio for the long haul.

This evening, Jones signed an extension with iHeart Media to continue the KSR radio show for five more years.

“I just re-signed with iHeart Media to do KSR for five more years,” Jones said in a tweet. “[Ryan Lemond], [Drew Franklin], and [Shannon the Dude] will continue as well. I am very happy to continue the show as we enter our 10th year on the air.”

It didn’t take long for Drew to share his thoughts on the news:

Matt will return to the air on Dec. 26.

      You guys realize the fan bot doesn’t mean anything? The award is determined by a large committee of writers, coaches, information directors, and past winners. There are many voters. The fan vote counts as 1 vote against a couple dozen. Derp.

      Nothing UK or BBN means anything to you LimpDixie, probably beause you’re not a UK fan.

    Max is narrowly in the lead with 95% of the vote. The other two candidates tied for dead last with 2-3%.

    Matt re-signing with KSR feels like Stoops or Calipari signing a contract extension. My fan experience is better because of Matt Jones. Thanks for keeping it ridiculous!

    5yrs and ?? Much $$, just curious. As long as he leaves the damn pollitics off then I’m all for him, good job matt. Much more political crap though and many will be lost.

      He’d made a terrible Senator anyway.

      Hack, how could he have been any worse than the one we got??? At least Matt cares about Kentucky..

      Right Bluehender, the Senator sure doesn’t have Kentucky’s best interest.

      Nah I try not to bet to much, just saying what I think. If he was pro-trump some of you would feel differently about the pollitic thing. Sports wise though ksr radio has a great thing going and Matt’s great at it along with the guys and gals that makes things tick behind the scenes.

    Great news! Now if they can just get him to show up for work…..

      Apparently being indecisive took a lot out of him, he said he needed some time off.

    So why did we need to free Matt Jones? All he had to do was say he wasn’t running and then he was free, correct?
    Seems like the decision for freedom rested with him lol
