The NFL's JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS are moving from their longtime radio home, COX MEDIA GROUP News-Talk WOKV-A-F/JACKSONVILLE, to crosstown SEVEN BRIDGES RADIO Sports WJXL-A-F (1010XL 92.5 FM) and RENDA Country WGNE (99.9 GATOR COUNTRY) under multiyear agreements with terms undisclosed. In addition, preseason television coverage will move from COX CBS affiliate WTEV-TV (CBS47) to POST-NEWSWEEK Independent WJXT-TV and CBS affiliate WKMG-TV (LOCAL 6)/ORLANDO.
JAGS Pres. MARK LAMPING said, “We’re very proud to team with all of these partners – 1010XL, 99.9 GATOR COUNTRY and WJXT Channel 4 and WKMG – and we look forward to expanding our radio and TV programming with them. Given the size of the JACKSONVILLE market, it is critical that we reach all current and potential JAGUARS fans. Our new partners will help us do that in JACKSONVILLE as well as the surrounding region, including the important market of ORLANDO.
“1010XL brings a broad audience of loyal listeners and avid sports fans, 99.9 GATOR COUNTRY gives us greater reach with our game-day broadcasts to an important new demographic, and no TV station is more focused on JACKSONVILLE and the local market than Channel 4."
1010XL GM STEVE GRIFFIN said, "The JAGUARS are the most important sports franchise in our city's history, and we are honored to become the flagship station and to be part of the team. Everyone is impressed with the team's new regime, their dedication to the city and the fans, and the positive momentum coming from EVERBANK FIELD. We are excited about using our resources to help the cause and to grow together in the years to come."
RENDA JACKSONVILLE GM BILL REESE said "99.9 GATOR COUNTRY and RENDA BROADCASTING are very excited to be a media partner with the JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS starting with the 2014 season. The JAGUARS have a reputation in the NFL as a first-class organization from ownership, to management, to the coaching staff and players. RENDA BROADCASTING is proud to be affiliated with the JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS who are committed to not only winning but representing the city of JACKSONVILLE in a very positive way. As their radio partner, we look forward and are committed to helping the JAGUARS grow their franchise to the next level."
