TULSA, Okla. – Griffin Communications is excited to announce The Blitz 1170 AM – Tulsa’s new sports talk station covering Oklahoma and national sports by the folks who know sports best, the experts from Oklahoma’s Own.

“We are so excited to bring the best local sports radio to Tulsa,” said Todd Spessard, Griffin Communications’ Vice President of Content. “From high school to college to professional – Tulsa has so many great sports stories to tell, and we can’t wait to bring them to Green Country. We’re putting together a local lineup of some of the best and well-known Tulsa voices and are ready to start talking sports!”
