May 30, 2012 at 2:15 PM (PT)
To celebrate the LOS ANGELES KING run for the STANLEY CUP, CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative KYSR (98-7fm)/LOS ANGELES has decided to drop all commercials during STANLEY CUP FINAL games and instead cut to live play-by-play on sister Talk KTLK-A (AM 1150) with the KINGS radio team NICK NICKSON and DARYL EVANS.
In addition to breaking into the games live, 98-7fm will also alert listeners to scoring updates throughout the games between songs. It's the KINGS first trip to the NHL STANLEY CUP FINALS since 1993. Face off for game one against the NEW JERSEY DEVILS begins during drive time tonight at 5p (PT).
"At 98-7fm, Music is King," said KYSR PD JULIE PILAT. "Our listeners are so excited about the L.A. KINGS’ success so far, and we are in the business of giving our listeners what they want. They want to hear their favorite Alternative music, and stay close to what’s happening in the STANLEY CUP FINAL. They can do both now with 98-7fm."
