KCUB (1290 kHz, "Wildcats Sports Radio 1290") is a commercial AM radio station located in Tucson, Arizona. KCUB is owned by Cumulus Media and airs a sports radio format. Its studios, offices and transmitter are co-located on Oracle Road in Tucson, north of downtown.

KCUB serves as the flagship radio station for University of Arizona Wildcats football and basketball games via IMG Sports. KCUB is the Tucson-area affiliate of the NFL's Arizona Cardinals.[1] Its studios and transmitter are co-located on Oracle Road in Tucson, north of downtown.

The format includes programming from CBS Sports Radio, including the syndicated Jim Rome Show, as well as local hosts Kevin Woodman and Iron Mike Luke who are heard in the afternoon.


In August 1929, KCUB was founded as KVOA. It was originally on 1260 kilocycles, powered at 500 watts, and owned by the Arizona Broadcasting Company.[2] KVOA was Tucson's second radio station, going on the air three years after KTUC. KVOA was an affiliate of the NBC Red Network and carried its schedule of dramas, comedies, news, sports, soap operas, game shows and big band broadcasts during the Golden Age of Radio. By the 1940s, power was boosted to 1,000 watts and the station moved to 1290 kHz.

In September 1953, the owners put Channel 4 KVOA-TV on the air, also an NBC affiliate. Believing that TV would replace radio, the owners kept the TV station and sold off the radio station in 1958.[3] The new owner, Sherwood R. Gordon, renamed it KCUB but kept the affiliation with NBC. In 1968, the station was sold to Rex Broadcasting, airing a country music format.[4]

In 2001, KCUB was bought by Citadel Broadcasting, a forerunner of Cumulus, which switched it to its current sports format.
