KDLT will be partnering with The University of Sioux Falls Athletic Department and USF Media Department to broadcast two home football games this Fall.
Fans will have the first opportunity to tune in Sept.14 when the University of Sioux Falls takes on Northern State University at 6:30 p.m. The second game will be Oct. 26 when the Augustana Vikings visit Bob Young Field. This will also be a 6:30 p.m. kickoff.
Covering the games for KDLT will be Alex Heinert and Jim Heinitz.
Alex Heinert, a graduate of USF, will call the play-by-play. Heinert has helped deliver the broadcast for the last two seasons and has been a radio host and color analyst for high school and college football games for Midwest Communications since 2007. He also serves as the public address announcer for the Sioux Falls Canaries and Sioux Falls Stampede.
Jim Heinitz was the head football coach at Augustana College for 17 seasons before retiring at the conclusion of the 2004 season. He is the school’s longest-serving head coach and has the most wins in Augustana history. In addition, he is a 1972 graduate of South Dakota State University, where he was an All-North Central Conference linebacker for the Jackrabbits. He has previously served as an assistant coach at the University of Sioux Falls, Sioux Falls Washington High School, Sioux Falls Lincoln High School and was head football coach at Rapid City Stevens High School prior to joining the Augustana staff.
“Alex and Jim both know South Dakota football,” said Mari Ossenfort, KDLT’s General Manager. “They will bring experience, knowledge, and enthusiasm to our telecasts.”
