High school coverage with KDRV 12+
In September 2011, KTMT and Radio Medford started a working relationship with KDRV NewsWatch 12+ (Channel 12.2 over-the-air and channel 291 on Charter Cable in the Rogue Valley) with simulcast coverage of the "Friday Night Blitz Game Of The Week" during the high school football season and the "Roundball Wrap Game Of The Week" during the high school basketball season. Radio Medford's Bill Jacobs is joined by KDRV's Chris Leone and Brandon Kamerman. (Chris Breece was a part of the broadcast team from 2011 to 2012.)
Various Southern Oregon high schools are covered. However, games involving such high schools as North Medford High School, South Medford High School, Ashland High School, Crater High School and Cascade Christian High School are not broadcast on KTMT due to those schools' commitments with other radio stations.
