CUMULUS Sports WHGB-A-W243BR (SPORTS RADIO 96.5)/HARRISBURG and Sports WGLD-A (SPORTSRADIO 1440)/YORK, PA are joining the WASHINGTON NATIONALS radio network this season, reports the HARRISBURG PATRIOT NEWS' PENNLIVE.COM.
The station had previously carried PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES baseball but is switching to the NATS in a one-year deal; the HARRISBURG SENATORS are the NATS' Double-A minor league affiliate.
CUMULUS RVP RON GIOVANNIELLO told the paper, "Our agreement was up and we made the decision last week to part ways with the PHILLIES and flip to the NATIONALS. Nothing against the PHILLIES, but clearly the NATIONALS are a team on the rise. They won the NL East last year and are picked to win it again this year."
The NATS did not previously have a PENNSYLVANIA affiliate.
