PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS basketball will move from CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KEX-A/PORTLAND to sister Sports KPOJ-A (FOX SPORTS RADIO 620) for the 2013-14 season.
BRIAN WHEELER and ANTONIO HARVEY will call the action beginning with the preseason game against the LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS at the newly-renamed MODA CENTER (formerly the ROSE GARDEN) on OCTOBER 7th. The team's weekly TRAIL BLAZERS COURTSIDE, hosted by WHEELER, HARVEY, and TV voices MIKE BARRETT and MIKE RICE, will also air on FOX SPORTS RADIO 620.
“We are excited about the opportunity to broadcast our games on a station the offers an all-sports format,” said BLAZERS President & CEO CHRIS MCGOWAN. “This transition also allows us to avoid any preemption throughout the course of the season.”
"We're thrilled to continue our partnership and build 'BLAZER Mania' in PORTLAND,” said CLEAR CHANNEL Market President ROBERT DOVE. ”For all things TRAIL BLAZERS you only need FOX SPORTS RADIO 620."
