Kugler is currently the lead play-by-play voice on Dial Global’s coverage of NCAA Football® and NCAA Basketball® and this marks his fifth consecutive year behind the microphone for the CWS. Kugler, a four-time winner of the Nebraska Sportscaster of the Year (2003-06), joined the NCAA Radio Network in 2004 as a field reporter for the CWS before being moved upstairs to the broadcast booth. For the past two seasons he teamed with Terry Bowden on Dial Global’s College Football Game of the Week, and partnered with Pete Gillen on the NCAA Basketball Game of the Week as well. Kugler also called the Men’s Final Four this past March with John Thompson and Bill Raftery. Kugler, a native of Omaha, can be heard daily as the cohost of “Unsportsmanlike Conduct,” which airs weekday afternoons locally on 1620, The Zone. He also does television play-by-play for NET Sports, and is the former radio voice of the University of Nebraska-Omaha. In association with Dial Global, NRG Radio will once again call all of the preliminary games from Rosenblatt Stadium. Kugler handles play-by-play and former University of Nebraska catcher (and linebacker) Adrian Fiala adds analysis.
