The UK IMG Sports Network, historically known as the Big Blue Sports Network (BBSN), is the radio and television network of the University of Kentucky Wildcats men's and women's sports teams. It consists of nine over-the-air television affiliates, two regional sports networks, and 70 radio stations in Kentucky and neighboring states.[1]

In 2007, HOST Communications, a college sports marketing company based in the university's home city of Lexington that had operated the Big Blue Sports Network, was purchased by the entertainment management company IMG. However, the name of the network did not change until the 2010–11 academic year.

Except for the Blue/White game, beginning in the 2012-2013 season, all men's basketball broadcasts on Fox Sports South began to be produced by Fox Sports, using their graphics and music.
