With the format flip of former COLUMBUS market affiliate RADIO ONE Sports WXMG (95.5 THE GAME)/COLUMBUS to Urban AC as MAGIC 95.5 in NOVEMBER, the NBA's CLEVELAND CAVALIERS were left to find a new affiliate in the state capital, and GOLD CHIP COMMUNICATIONS Gospel WVKO-A (1580 THE PRAISE)/COLUMBUS has agreed to air the CAVS for the rest of the season.
"We are excited and proud to have a new radio home for CAVALIERS basketball in COLUMBUS with our partners at GOLD CHIP COMMUNICATIONS," said CAVS Pres./Business Operations KERRY BUBOLZ. "COLUMBUS is home to many passionate CAVS fans and we're happy to have them on board as we continue our journey through the 2015-16 season."
"On behalf of GOLD CHIP COMMUNICATIONS, we are delighted and honored to bring the CAVS to CENTRAL OHIO," said WVKO GM BISHOP MEL GRIFFIN. "We look forward to establishing a long lasting partnership that builds upon our commitment to being connected to the community, being the voice of the people, and now the new home of the CLEVELAND CAVALIERS."
