Football changes every year, but the voices behind the broadcasts rarely have in KNDY FM’s 45 years of covering high school sports.

Mic side Friday for Marysville games will be station owner Bruce Dierking with analyst Jason Brinegar, who has been there 10 seasons. Brinegar took the post when former attorney Brian Carroll moved to Pratt. When Dierking’s stations began to double up Friday games between its AM and FM stations, Bryan Kracht began to assist with the play calls. Ben Keller, Beatrice, began working at KNDY last summer and brought with him 23 years of midwest high school sports coverage. He is joined by Coleman Younger, Frankfort, who enters his third year on the air.
