WASHINGTON WIZARDS basketball will move from CBS RADIO Sports WJFK (106.7 THE FAN)/WASHINGTON to sister News WNEW-F (ALL NEWS 99.1)/WASHINGTON-BALTIMORE this season. DAVE JOHNSON returns as play-by-play voice for his 17th season, and GLENN CONSOR is back for his 5th as analyst.
SVP/Market Manager STEVE SWENSON said, “The WIZARDS have been steadily building for the future, and the future has arrived. Our stations are proud supporters of D.C.’s sports teams and WNEW is no exception. We’re thrilled to offer loyal fans a broad range of options to engage with the WIZARDS on game day and beyond.”
“CBS RADIO stations are home to nearly 30 professional sports teams across the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL," CBS RADIO SVP/Programming CHRIS OLIVIERO said. "We see tremendous value in presenting this type of premier content that ultimately strengthens our appeal with local listeners and sets our stations apart from the rest of the industry. We’ve had a winning track record in sports broadcasting for more than two decades, and deals like this one reinforce our commitment to the format.”
106.7 THE FAN remains the play-by-play home of the WASHINGTON NATIONALS and WASHINGTON CAPITALS.
