It's a new flagship for the NBA's PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS, who are moving from ALPHA BROADCASTING Sports KXTG-A (750 THE GAME)/PORTLAND to crosstown CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KEX-A-K272EL this season. KEX-A aired BLAZERS games from 1979-85 and again from 1989-2001.
“The TRAIL BLAZERS’ partnership with KEX and CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT goes beyond the ability to provide our fans with a simulcast of our broadcasts,” said BLAZERS SVP/Digital Entertainment DICK VARDANEGA. “This partnership will also provide a number of new and innovative opportunities for our fans to engage in all things TRAIL BLAZERS. We are very excited about the possibilities and can’t wait to get things started.”
“We are thrilled that the PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS have decided to renew their partnership with CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT and return to their longtime home, 1190 KEX and 102.3 FM,” said CLEAR CHANNEL VP/Market Manager ROBERT DOVE.
