CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative WXDX (105.9 THE X)/PITTSBURGH and the PITTSBURGH PENGUINS TPODAY announced a three-year extension to their agreement that will continue PENGUINS radio coverage on 105.9 THE X through the 2017-2018 NHL season. PENGUINS’ games have aired on CLEAR CHANNEL/PITTSBURGH radio stations since 1999 and exclusively on 105.9 THE X since 2006.
In addition to the three-year extension, the PENGUINS and CLEAR CHANNEL have agreed to other broadcast coverage elements that will be effective during the 2012-2013 season including an expanded pre-game show from 30 minutes time frame to 60 minutes and will add a one-hour weekly magazine show called, "PENSWEEK" that will air on 105. 9 THE X every SATURDAY at 9a (ET) throughout the season.
"The extension with the PITTSBURGH PENGUINS through 2018 is very exciting as we continue what we both agree is a mutually-beneficial relationship," said TIM MCALEER, Pres./Market Manager. "CLEAR CHANNEL PITTSBURGH will continue to provide the most comprehensive PENGIUNS coverage, utilizing all six stations within the cluster as well as our dedicated station available on iHEARTRADIO, PENS 24/7."
