LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The University of Kansas says it has approved a deal that will expand live coverage of Jayhawks athletics across Kansas.

The deal between Kansas Athletics, IMG College, Time Warner Cable and Kansas City's Metro Sports was announced Monday.

Beginning with the 2013-14 school year, Metro Sports will televise more than 50 live Kansas events on the revamped Jayhawk Network, along with 600 hours of programing such as pre- and post-game shows for Jayhawk football and men's basketball games and a weekly magazine-style show.

The deal includes radio show simulcasts, a social-media-centered show for fans, highlight shows and quarterly Kansas academic specials.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/11WuzIl ) Kansas is the last Big 12 school to enter such a deal for its television rights.
