CBS SPORTS RADIO gets an around-the-clock affiliate in WASHINGTON with the flip of CBS RADIO News WNEW-A (1580 GOV.BIZ RADIO) to Sports using the network lineup across the board, starting MONDAY (1/28). CBS also owns all-local Sports WJFK (106.7 THE FAN) in the WASHINGTON market; the AM station launched the "GOV.BIZ" business and government talk format in OCTOBER, flipping from a standard Talk format that had been in place since NOVEMBER 2008.
SVP/Market Manager STEVE SWENSON said, “We are proud to offer area sports fans an All-Star lineup that caters to their local and national sports interests. 106.7 THE FAN knows D.C. sports like no one else, and CBS SPORTS is a clear leader when it comes to breaking down the day’s headlines and stories breaking across the country. As a result of this impressive combination of stations, there’s no argument we will be the dominant sports voice in the city.”
