Westwood One Sports, in conjunction with the NCAA Radio Network, is pleased to present the NCAA Men’s Baseball Championship as part of the broadcast schedule. The 66th-annual College World Series (CWS) will once again be held in Omaha—the 63rd consecutive year that Nebraska has hosted the event, now in its second year at TD Ameritrade Park.
Eight teams will compete in Omaha during the preliminary rounds of the championship, and will play in a double elimination format, with the two bracket survivors meeting in a best-of-three series to determine the NCAA champion. CLICK HERE for the latest bracket from NCAA.com.

Championship Series Announcers
Calling the action again this year will be Kevin Kugler, his ninth consecutive year behind the microphone for the College World Series. He joined the NCAA Radio Network in 2004 as a field reporter for the CWS before being moved upstairs to the broadcast booth in 2007.
Scott Graham will again share the play-by-play duties, his second straight trip to the CWS. He was the play-by-play voice of the Philadelphia Phillies for eight seasons from 1999-2006, and he hosted the pregame and postgame shows for the Phillies for nearly a decade prior to that.
In association with the Westwood One/NCAA Radio Network, NRG Media will once again originate coverage of every preliminary game from TD Ameritrade Park. Kevin Kugler will handle play-by-play while John Bishop serves as the analyst. Field reporters during preliminary games will include Matt Schick, David Gustafson and Chris Whitney.
