CBS RADIO Sports WJFK (106.7 THE FAN)/WASHINGTON will remain the D.C. affiliate for VIRGINIA TECH football and men's basketball under a three-year contract renewal with VIRGINIA TECH IMG SPORTS NETWORK. The station will also continue to carry weekly coaches' shows with football coach FRANK BEAMER and basketball coach SETH GREENBERG.
"VIRGINIA TECH has a large and loyal fan base in the WASHINGTON, D.C. area," said PD CHRIS KINARD. "We're very excited to continue to provide HOKIE fans with play-by-play broadcasts of their favorite football and men's basketball team on THE FAN."
"We were thrilled to make the switch to WJFK three years ago to enhance our exposure in the NORTHERN VIRGINIA and D.C. market place," said VIRGINIA TECH IMG SPORTS NETWORK GM RICK BARAKAT. "That sentiment has proven itself over the initial term of this relationship, and we couldn't be happier to extend this deal for another three years. WJFK is one of our marquee affiliates across the entire VIRGINIA TECH IMG SPORTS NETWORK, and we look forward to doing more great things with this partnership in the future. There is no better home for the HOKIES in this key market than 106.7 THE FAN!"
