The MILWAUKEE BREWERS have inked an extension with longtime flagship SCRIPPS News-Talk WTMJ-A/MILWAUKEE. The BREWERS have aired on WTMJ for all but two seasons since the team moved from SEATTLE during spring training 1970. BOB UECKER, JEFF LEVERING, and LANE GRINDLE call the BREWERS games on WTMJ and a network of affiliates across the area. Terms of the new deal were not disclosed.
BREWERS COO RICK SCHLESINGER said, “The MILWAUKEE BREWERS and WTMJ have one of the longest-standing partnerships in MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL, and today’s announcement continues a great tradition of bringing MILWAUKEE BREWERS games and programming on radio to fans throughout WISCONSIN. WTMJ is a heritage brand in MILWAUKEE, and they are committed to activating all of their resources to make this a terrific partnership with our organization.”
SCRIPPS VP/Radio STEVE WEXLER said, "We're big believers in localism at SCRIPPS, and there are few things more local than BREWERS baseball on WTMJ. We're thrilled to continue this strong, mutually beneficial partnership with the BREWERS."
WTMJ VP/GM TOM LANGMYER said, “In addition to WTMJ's incredible footprint, we're proud to continue operating the BREWERS RADIO NETWORK so that BREWERS baseball is available to fans in several states.”
