YAHOO! SPORTS RADIO will air coverage of all three of thoroughbred horse racing's Triple Crown in 2014 through a deal with HORSE RACING RADIO NETWORK, the network announced TODAY (4/21).
YSR CEO DAVID GOW said, “We are really excited to partner with HRRN to air the Triple Crown on YAHOO! SPORTS RADIO. The races are unique, exciting content -- and we have gotten great response from our affiliates.”
The broadcasts of the KENTUCKY DERBY (5/3), PREAKNESS (5/17), and BELMONT STAKES (6/7) will air 5-7p (ET), with post-race coverage on PETER BROWN's show.
PD/COO CRAIG LARSON added, “This is the first time live play by play has appeared on YSR but, it won’t be the last. Partnering with HRRN is a big victory for both network and listeners.”
