The L.A. CLIPPERS and KFWB ASSET TRUST Sports KFWB-A (THE BEAST 980)/LOS ANGELES have a new exclusive multi-year broadcast rights agreement. THE BEAST 980 will continue to be the official radio home of THE CLIPPERS for all preseason, regular season and Playoff games as well as present comprehensive year-round coverage.
“THE BEAST 980 has been providing exceptional coverage of THE CLIPPERS on and off the court, while uniquely engaging our fans,” CLIPPERS President/Business Operations GILLIAN ZUCKER said. “We are proud to continue this relationship with L.A.’s new home for sports, establishing a long-term destination for CLIPPERS basketball on the radio.”
Play-by-play duties will be handled by BRIAN SIEMAN in his eighth season calling CLIPPERS action on the radio, while the venerable “Voice of the Clippers,” RALPH LAWLER and former CLIPPER MICHAEL SMITH team up with SIEMAN to call all nationally televised games not shown on FOX SPORTS PRIME TICKET. Long-time CLIPPERS broadcaster ISAAC LOWENKRON will continue to host CLIPPERS pre-game, halftime and post-game shows. THE BEAST 980’s GEORGE WRIGHSTER and BRETT WINTERBLE also host “CLIPPERS Hardcore” before every game.
“With this agreement CLIPPERS fans now have a local radio partner truly dedicated to everything CLIPPERS,” said DIANE SUTTER, Trustee for KFWB ASSET TRUST which operates THE BEAST 980. “This enables fans and listeners to hear exciting games along with comprehensive, year-round CLIPPERS talk.”
