TEXAS RANGERS baseball will move from CUMULUS Sports KESN (ESPN DALLAS 103.3 FM)/DALLAS to crosstown CBS RADIO Sports KRLD-F (105.3 THE FAN) next season under a multi-year agreement. The RANGERS, who retain responsibility for production and networking of the game broadcasts, aired on CBS News KRLD-A in 1995-2008 and aired on both KRLD-A and THE FAN in 2009-10. Hall of Famer ERIC NADEL and MATT HICKS return to call the games in 2015. Games bumped from THE FAN due to programming conflicts will air on KRLD-A.
RANGERS EVP/Communications JOHN BLAKE said, "We are very pleased to enter into this long-term radio agreement with 105.3 THE FAN. The RANGERS enjoyed a great relationship with KRLD and CBS RADIO from 1995-2010, and we look forward to a very productive partnership in the future."
“We couldn’t be more excited that the TEXAS RANGERS are coming home to 105.3 THE FAN," CBS RADIO SVP/Market Manager BRIAN PURDY added. "The RANGERS games and related programming will be a great addition to our powerful lineup of play-by-play broadcasts and local Sports Talk shows on THE FAN. And it’s a partnership that includes all six of CBS RADIO’s DALLAS-FORT WORTH stations as we feature the team across our entire portfolio of over-the-air and digital assets.”
