After 32 consecutive seasons (and 40 overall) with CUMULUS Sports KNBR-A/SAN FRANCISCO, the NBA's GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS will be moving their flagship to ENTERCOM Sports KGMZ (95.7 THE GAME)/SAN FRANCISCO under a new multi-year deal that includes expanded pre- and post-game shows and more content all year long.
TIM ROYE will return to call the play-by-play for his 22nd season and will appear regularly on THE GAME's talk shows on MONDAYS, WEDNESDAYS, and FRIDAYS during the season and select off-season dates. EMPIRE BROADCASTING Country KRTY/SAN JOSE and KUIC, INC. AC KUIC/VACAVILLE, both two channels over at 95.3 FM, will join the WARRIORS network and air the games as well.
“We’re excited about our new partnership with 95.7 THE GAME and the opportunity to provide our fans with increased coverage of the WARRIORS in a centralized location,” said WARRIORS President & COO RICK WELTS. “Under the terms of this partnership, virtually every WARRIORS game – including the playoffs – will be broadcast on 95.7. Additionally, our fans will benefit from increased programming overall throughout the year, including extended pre and post-game shows, more in-season programming, a dedicated off-season presence and numerous call-in shows featuring front office staff, players and broadcasters. We look forward to working in conjunction with an extremely talented group of individuals at 95.7 THE GAME and its parent company, ENTERCOM, as we continue our journey through one of the most exciting times in the history of our franchise.”
“We are truly excited about this new relationship with the GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS,” said ENTERCOM Pres./CEO DAVID FIELD. “It is a privilege to partner with such an extraordinary organization. We look forward to bringing our listeners exclusive, unparalleled coverage of the team both on and off the court.”
“We know that our fans turn to us for the best-in-class sports content from the teams and leagues they care about the most,” said THE GAME VP/GM STEVE DINARDO. “The WARRIORS are one of the most popular basketball teams in the world and we are proud to deliver play-by-play broadcasts and 24/7 team coverage to local fans in the BAY AREA and to be the official home of WARRIORS basketball.”
“We’d also like to thank KNBR and the management at CUMULUS for being a valued and trusted partner for nearly four decades,” added WELTS. “KNBR has been a staple of the BAY AREA airwaves for many years and we’ve been extremely fortunate to enjoy such a terrific long-standing relationship.” The WARRIORS had been on KNBR for most of the time since moving to the BAY AREA (as the SAN FRANCISCO WARRIORS) from PHILADELPHIA in 1962.
