What is the KTUU Sports Podcast?
Each week the KTUU Sports Department will sit down and talk sports from a different perspective than you're used to seeing on television. The goal of the podcast is to go more in-depth with the subjects we're interviewing, rather than the quick soundbite you might hear on TV.
