The whole point of this thread will be in relation to Viking news and Viking related events in the State of Iowa during the 2013 season.
It will depend on posters residing in Iowa to post on it.
If you hear or know of Iowa related Viking news post it here
I'll try and post (once the regular season starts) the Vikings TV times and what not for (at least) the Des Moines region.
All right, another season starts!
Radio stations that cover the Vikings in Iowa
These should be the same all REGULAR season long.
Here in Des Moines I expect 1460 KXNO to cover the Vikings. They even cover the first hour of Vikings Fan Line from KFAN.
I'll work on finding other radio stations in the state.
From 2012 but it should stay the same

Refuses to support Vikings, will support Nebraska Cornhuskers instead
Iowa Hawkeyes head football coach Kirk Ferentz is proud of Chad Greenway, Christian Ballard, Seth Olsen and James Vandenberg
Minnesota boasts a 4-year-old $288.5 million stadium with terrific amenities. As part of a two-year lease agreement, the Vikings will spend $4.5 million in upgrades by the 2014 season. But the Gophers’ football complex was built in 1985 for $5 million and is considered perhaps the league’s worst practice facility. The program has lost recruits to its major rivals, and each day it falls further behind.
More gopher related but a tie in to the Vikings

Pre-Season Week 2+ Report
8/16 6:00 PM CT Will be on channel 8.2 in the Des Moines IA region
WHBF-DT 4.1 (CBS) will cover this game in the Quad cities region
Bad news for Sioux City, it seems KPTH-DT 44.1 (FOX) will cover Bucs at Pats instead. (If I recall 2 years ago this station covered a packer game instead of the vikings and got TONS of negative feedback and formally apologized, So good for them on this move?)
KSFY-DT 13.1 ABC (NW Iowa/Sioux Falls) will cover the Vikings
WKBT-DT 8.1 (NE Iowa/La Crosse) CBS will cover the Vikings>Cancer Connection for Iowa Boy and Vikings Player
