So naturally, there aren’t enough hours and radio stations to fully exhaust all there is to say about the NCAA Tourney, which will include top-ranked UK, Louisville and probably Indiana. Hosts will impart strategy on how to win money by studying the teams and match ups. Despite all that, you can bet that woman in accounting who doesn’t know a thing about hoops will win your office pool.

So, for all those fans, iHeartMedia Louisville will host “The Monday Marathon,” a special full day of live college basketball programming. With the upcoming NCAA Tournament, 790 KRD, Talk Radio 1080 and News Radio 840 WHAS will provide insight on how far teams will go with tips to fill brackets. iHeartMedia Louisville sports hosts will be joined by special guests including former players and coaches as well as local media, including former Louisville coach Denny Crum, plus John Boel, Kent Taylor and Kendrick Haskins from WAVE-TV, Paul Rogers from The UofL Radio Network, and former UK and UofL players Wade Houston, Marques Maybin, and Winston Bennett. There will also be a special NCAA bracket contest for a chance to win a Goalrilla Basketball Goal and other great prizes given away each hour.

The radio programs will originate from Mall St. Matthews, and fans are invited to join the party.
